Waiting for snowflakes

Monday, October 27th, 2008

This fall Bearskin has two employees who are eagerly awaiting the first snow — not counting Andy and Quinn who are also impatiently hoping for snow, mainly so they can play with all the big, burly snow equipment.  Our new employees Laura and Megan come from Florida and Louisiana, where obviously snow is not a typical part of their life experience.  For them, the first time that it actually snows here on the Gunflint Trail will be a noteworthy day.

Earlier this week we almost had something for them – a cold rain was falling and if you looked carefully, you could imagine occasional hard-edged drops that almost passed for flakes.  Laura and Megan counted it as snow, and by Down South standards it might have qualified.   But we knew better.
