We had quite the winter at Lake Summerset. Here's a few photos to prove it. Above: that's my dog, Louie, running around in the maze dug out for him by my good friend (neighbor) James. That's my house, below, during the Blizzard of 2011. This obviously was a "snow day," but I had to leave later to help set up a shelter for people caught on U.S. 20, near Lena.
