Mid-January Winter Wonderland Along Lake Erie

Well our first real winter storm arrived early Friday morning and continued until @ 4pm Saturday afternoon. Of course the storm coincided with our re-opening weekend. Unfortunately, we had several cancellations due to road conditions and power outages en route. 90% of our staff stayed home on Saturday.
Today is another day, however. The Sun is shining bright and wind is minimal, Thank goodness.

Taking a walk toward the water reveals some ice forming at the shore.
and on the rocks.
Here is a view of the back of the Inn.

Sam was VERY busy plowing the past 24 hours or so...

You can barely see the Event Room from the Inn driveway due to the plow mounds.

Drew Update

I had the opportunity to spend time today with Drew and Michayla this afternoon. Andrea and I were spending time trying to put the final plans for the Spa opening. Needless to say spending time with the grandchildren took precedent. What actually prompted this post was a conversation one of our front desk staff had with one of our loyal guests of the Inn "Karen really needs to update her Blog with pictures of Drew". So here you are Denise:
Michayla just loves her cousin, Drew!

Here is Drew in action-his arms and legs are always moving!!! Sam thinks he is going to be a Boxer.
Andrea and Lance sent this shot to me on Christmas Afternoon.
The Teddy Bear is reading the Night Before Christmas to Drew during Girls Weekend.

Michayla was one of the first to hold Drew once he got home (he was 3 days old in this shot).
Andrew Jacob Bushweiler was born November 16, 2011
He weighed 6# 12 oz and 21" long

January Full Moon on Lake Erie

This past week the Moon has been SO bright throughout the night-time hours, it wakes me from a sound sleep. We have several windows facing West and with the clear nights, the Moonlight has been just incredible.
I  braved the frigid temps this morning to take this shot...
I took this from the winery deck-if it wasn't so cold, I would have gotten my coffee to just sit and reflect on how amazing Mother Nature really is!  The deck was a solid sheet of frost and by the time I came up to the Inn, my fingers were feeling some pre-frostbite tingling, but it was SO worth it!!!

On my way back up towards the Inn, I could not resist this shot from the trees just South of the Beach House.
