Ice on the Spirit Tree
Happy New Year! 2018 came in just like 2017 went out, clear and cold! Sounds like it might get slightly warmer later today and tomorrow then once again our highs return to right around zero degrees. With all the cold and wind we've had the spirit tree has developed quite a bit of ice on it, something I haven't seen in a long time. I'm sure part of the reason is the high lake level, which means the tree was getting splashed more than it has been in several years. As the waves splashed on the tree the cold temperatures caused the water to freeze, making some nice long icicles hanging down from the trunk.
