No beef for a week…….

The little bit of rain they are forecasting is not going to hurt a thing, back to snow by Monday. It will make it slippery as hell though, so if you are out and about up here be careful.

I am going back to opening at 2 pm next week and we will be closed Thanksgiving. The bar has slowed down since the hunters have left so Becker and I are going to take the day off before the shit starts to hit the fan. We won’t be cooking again until the trails open up either, sorry but right now I would be throwing out more than I would be selling.

Weather: A little warm up, a little rain, then back to snow

Trail Conditions: SNOW

I have the little house open for rent this winter. $100 a night for up to 3 people, $125 a night for 4-5 people with a 3 night minimum. Dates are filling up, check out the calendar on my rental page for availability.  

9 More Days

A little over 75 inches of snow have hit our area since November 8th. That’s 1/3 of the total snowfall we had last year. It is also an inch over my head. We have had fun trying to stay dugout, I have already had the roof at the bar shoveled and had a tractor come in to move snow. We do have rain forecasted for the weekend, but the snow will survive. We should be good to go December 1st, are you ready?

Weather: A break in the snow for a few days

Trail Conditions: SNOW

Trails or Tunnels this year?

I may have screwed up using a Porcupine as a snow gauge, maybe I should have used a Giraffe? Hard to believe it is only November, I am not sure what our snowfall has been so far but we must be over 6 feet by now. I’m not sure if we are going to have trails or tunnels this year for the sleds.

Hey we might get some snow today

I have had a few problems plowing this year, wet heavy snow, and trying to clean out the back of the bar seemed a little much for the Excursion. I had to have someone come in with a tractor and clean me out. I guess I should have bought a John Deere instead of a Ford. Man did that ever work nice. At least now everything can freeze up and plowing should be a little easier.

Looks like more snow on the way today, possibly up to another foot. Forecasts are for a bit of a warm up this weekend with rain changing to more fricken white shit early next week. Don’t worry, come December 1st I’ll welcome the snow again, it has just been a pain in the ass for residents and hunters this early in the year. I would rather be bitching about too much snow in November than not enough in December for sure. Get ready to head up, 11 more days and it will be legal to ride…..

Weather: Not a question of are we going to get snow, question is How much?

All we can do is laugh

Um ……. OK it just sucks up here right now. While you guys and gals are down there looking at the snow falling getting snow woodies (yes women get snow woodies too) we are trying our best just to stay plowed out. This just plain ole sucks up here right now. We are supposed to get a slight warm up this weekend and some rain, and then back to more snow next week. Lots more snow, yippee, yippee, joy joy.

Becker was driving her car and became lost in the snowstorm last night. She didn’t panic however, because she remembered what her dad had once told her. “If you ever get stuck in a snowstorm, just wait for a snow plow to come by and follow it.” Sure enough, pretty soon a snow plow came by, and she started to follow it. She followed the plow for about forty-five minutes. Finally the driver of the truck got out and asked her what she was doing. And she explained that her dad had told her if she ever got stuck in a snow storm, to follow a plow. The driver nodded and said, “Well, I’m done with the Co op parking lot, do you want to follow me over to the Bowling Alley now?”

No Trail Report Today

Do to a bad hangover there will be no trail report today, you will have to look at the web cams yourself. More fricken snow coming…….

Lake Effect Snow Coming

Just what we need, more fricken snow LOL. Monday’s forecast is calling form more snow. Possibly lots of it. HAPPY HAPPY JOY JOY. A few people coming into the bar the last few days have been talking about more snow next week but I didn’t see it in any forecasts until this morning. Monday and Tuesday possible heavy Lake Effect snow. Not what we need, but we can’t do anything about it but enjoy and laugh it off.

Packer-Eagles game at the bar later today, once again we probably won’t be able to watch the Lions game. Oh and the Vikings play the Bears, I’d like to see Cutler get his ass kicked again, who’s with me?

15 Days til Deer season, then the trails open

Opening Day of Deer Season today. This is probably no dig deal to those of you down in the flatlands but it is huge up here in the UP. Kids take off school, Doctors take off work, it is like the whole world stands still for deer season. But with all the snow some of the hunters have left already. Below is an email I got from my friend Bob from the Car Shack Deer Camp. They have been coming up here for 60+ years.

We tried to get to the “Car Shack” with a front end loader….decided the snow was too heavy…took 1/2 hr to just clear the 1st cabin and it would take 4-6 hrs to get to the back cabin…then how would we walk in the woods???  We called the others coming up and turned them around at FanDaLac Wi.
They may try in a week or so and stay in the First Cabin if the snow packs.  If so they will bring apples.  I am done till
spring unless I come snowmobiling in Jan or Feb.
At least I got a beef sandwich.  14hr drive up and a 13hr drive back in 48hrs.  What a guy will not do for a beef sandwich and a hug from Becker!!!!

SNOW a 4 letter word

Anybody been watching the weather channel? A couple people told me the Al Roker had a picture of downtown and mentioned Bergland on the Weather Channel, we made the national news. Looks like clear skies for a few days, it will be nice if we can all get caught up with the plowing. I guess if you don’t like snow you have no business being in the UP. The Lake is icing up, now we need cold instead of snow for a while. Need to make ice on the Lake and out in the wet lands that the trails run through.

A store that sells new husbands has opened in Bergland situated next to the Bergland Bay Bar, where a woman may go to
choose a husband. Among the instructions at the entrance is a description of how the store operates:
 
You may visit this store ONLY ONCE!
There are six floors and the value of the products increase as the shopper ascends the flights.  The
shopper may choose any item from a particular floor, or may choose to go up to the next floor, but
you cannot go back down except to exit the building!
 
So, a woman goes to the Husband Store to find a husband. On the first floor the sign on the door reads:
 
Floor 1 – These men have jobs.
 
She is intrigued, but continues to the second floor, where the sign reads:
 
Floor 2 – These men have jobs and love children.
 
‘That’s nice,’ she thinks, ‘but I want more,’ so she continues upward.  The third floor sign reads:
 
Floor 3 – These men have jobs, love children, and are extremely good looking.
 
‘Wow,’ she thinks, but feels compelled to keep going.
 
She goes to the fourth floor and the sign reads:
 
Floor 4 – These men have jobs, love children, are drop-dead good looking and help with the housework.
 
‘Oh, mercy me!’ she exclaims, ‘I can hardly stand it!’
 
Still, she goes to the fifth floor and the sign reads:
 
Floor 5 – These men have jobs, love children, are drop-dead good looking and help with the
housework, and have a strong romantic streak.
 
She is so tempted to stay, but she goes to the sixth floor, where the sign reads:
 
Floor 6 – You are visitor 31,456,012 to this floor. There are no men on this floor. This floor exists
solely as proof that women are impossible to please.  Thank you for shopping at the Husband Store.

 

17 days till the trails open

Early December riding is kind of iffy.  It takes the groomers a few days to get things opened up. But if you like breaking trail the first week of December looks like it may be a fun time to ride. The temps look like they are going to cooperate at the moment and it is getting colder at night. I received a few emails about coming up in November, it is a definite no. Deer season is open until November 30th.

Weather: ~24 inches on the ground

Trail Conditions: SNOW

A guy goes to the Post Office in Bergland to apply for a  job. The interviewer asks him, “Are you allergic to anything?”

He replies, “Yes, caffeine. I can’t drink coffee.”

“OK, have you ever been in the military service?”

“Yes,” he says, “I was in Iraq for one tour.”

The interviewer says, “That will give you 5 extra points toward employment.” Then he asks, “Are you disabled in any way?”

The guy says, “Yes. A bomb exploded near me and I lost both my testicles.

The interviewer grimaces and then says, “Okay. You’ve got enough points for me to hire you right now.
Our normal hours are from 8 a. m. to 4:00 p.m. You can start tomorrow at 10 a.m., and plan on starting at 10 a.m.  Every day.”

The guy is puzzled and asks, “If the work hours are from 8 a.m. To 4 p.m., why don’t you want me here until 10 a.m.?”

“This is a government job”, the interviewer says. “For the first two hours, we just stand around drinking coffee and scratching our balls. No point in your coming in for that.”
