Welcome to the Lake Erie Tundra

The weather has been interesting the past weeks, has it not?
These shots were taken this morning.
There is zero evidence of any open water within view. It is a gorgeous site, however very chilly to say the least.
I braved the cold @7:30am to get this shot. The Moon has been absolutely spectacular this week.
Here is a view from the East at the same time, a glimpse of the sun beginning to rise.
What a difference a week makes, even in the dead of winter.

January Shutdown Activities

We are back from Florida and in the thick of getting everything ready to re-open. The staff has been very busy deep cleaning, painting and repairing. Sam and Brad are doing their magic.
Here is a sure sign of their presence.

Sam working on lighting in the tasting room.
This week's weather was just a shade chillier than it was in South Florida. I guess it is better than the blizzardly time we missed. It was wonderful to come home to minimal snow.
The fall cabbage and pansies are still in bloom.Although the weather is somewhat mild, the effects from earlier in the month remain on the shore of Lake Erie.
