Weather: Slight warm up then snow coming in.
A few days in the 30’s and then snow and cold are supposed to come. We can only hope, it looks promising my friends. Maybe winter is ready to hit the UP at last. Starting Sunday single digits for highs are rolling in. Snow is also in the forecast starting tomorrow, rather get the cold for a few days first but the cold may bring us more snow in the form of lake effect. Our conditions should improve drastically over the next 5-6 days.
Carl and Ruth lived at Aitkin Minnesota.
It was early winter and the lower portion of the their lake had frozen over.
Carl asked Ruth if she would walk across the frozen part of the lake to the general store and get him some smokes and beer.
She asked him for some money, but he told her, “Nah, just put it on our tab. Old man Stacey won’t mind.”
So Ruth, being the good wife walked across the ice, got the smokes and beer at the store and then walked back home across the cove.
When she got home with the items she said, “Carl, you always tell me not to run up the tab at Stacey’s store. Why didn’t you just give me some money?”
Carl replied, “Well, Mom, I didn’t want to send you out there with cash when I wasn’t sure how thick the ice was!”
A love story like this almost brings tears to my eyes……???
