Winter Carnival

It’s a winter wonderland.  We went to Saranac Lake to the winter carnival where they build an ice palace every year.  They cut blocks from Lake Flower and you can find all sorts of goodies in the walls.

Imagine people of all ages choosing to stand outside for a 2 hour parade, in sub freezing temperatures.  We were lucky this year because it’s been balmy and the weather was in the 20’s.  I was excited to go to the lumberjack demo but don’t plan to chop wood this way.

The theme was Adirondack cowboy and some spectators traveled in disguise.

After I dug my car out, which was buried by the plow, I enjoyed breakfast at Munday’s with Cooper.

The island got about 16-18 inches of snow, but when I crossed the Long Island Sound by ferry, there were only a few inches in Connecticut.
