We moved here last August, so several summer lakers were still hanging around and there was quite a bit of activity going on in our neighborhood. But in the winter, there isn't a soul around. Oh, we've seen a few ice-fisherman, battling the cold. But, there are some days I feel like I'm truly out in the wilderness. The lake has a different look about it just about every day. On certain days the sun shines on the ice cover, making it glisten. When temps get down below freezing, there is a strange cover of multi-shades of gray. Then there are days that a thick fog hovers over the water, so thick that everything on the lake is totally blocked from view. When the cold wind blows over the ice-covered lake, it makes a deep howling sound. Very eerie!!
We have been doing a few projects around the house that needed to be done also, some as soon as possible. Other's weren't 911, but just needed to be done. We had new windows installed and actually added one window to our lakeview living area, while covering a side window that took up precious wall space. We finally broke down and bought a widescreen T.V. and my hubby attached the wall mount to save room in our small living space.
Here are some 'before' pictures. I'll be posting the 'after' pictures very soon, so I hope you'll stop back over.
