Memorial Day has come and gone and the clock is ticking on the three most important months up here in the Brainerd lakes area. Each year it seems that there is pressure to make the most of the days between Memorial Day and Labor Day. This is why we live here, why we endure the winters (well, most of us; some of you just skip that season altogether by going south). There is boating, golfing, fishing, water skiing, camping, biking, sailing and the list goes on. How will there be enough time to get it all in?
As I look outside my window the world is turning white. The first significant snowfall of the year is happening and it is always special. It magically turns a world that has gotten brown and drab over the last several weeks into one that sparkles and looks so clean and wonderful. I will be tired of the snow in a couple of months and be ready for it to go away, but today it is amazing. It makes all things look beautiful.
