Park Rapids, Minnesota might differ from your area in that when we get snow, it STAYS, and stays and stays. It is a rare day in December, January, February, or even early March, that our day temperatures get above freezing. That means each time it snows, we just keep adding to the snow we already have! That keeps life interesting.
On January 28th a storm gave us about 12 inches. This past weekend another storm gave us 16, so we now have over 28 inches of snow on the ground (and the roof tops, and the picnic tables, and the boats, etc). The happiest people seem to be the snowmobile enthusiasts, the skiers, and people in the snow removal business!
I've taken a few pictures to share with you after this last storm. Some are funny, some are interesting, and some are just down right beautiful. Enjoy!
Until next time, ~~ Jennifer
A little different look to our Minnesota family resort.
I finally had to knock off the pile of snow on our deck railing. It was impeding my view of the lake!

This storm was a branch breaker.
The snow even made it to the INSIDE tree limbs, which is unusual, especially on an evergreen.
The docks double as "snow holders" in the winter.
These roofs seem to be holding up so far.
We usually see prints of deer hooves, but these are prints of deer BODIES!
If roofs and lids could talk, these would be saying, "Do you like my new hat?"
I like how the fish cleaning house looks "tucked in."
Two Inlets Resort is a family vacation destination for many, and is located in Park Rapids, MN. Jennifer grew up on the resort and now owns it with her husband and three children.
