Some Winter Finally Arrives on Haven Hill!

What an odd year for weather in Highland State Recreation Area so far! Not much snow, days of warm air above freezing, and days of short  cold, but not enough to even freeze area lakes 100%. Rough season for ice fishermen. This week the temperatures finally got down to 2 degrees, and 2 to 4 inches of snow fell on Friday night at Haven Hill.

Families enjoyed the sledding hill at the circle lot yesterday. The grass is finally covered with snow. Hopefully it will last for a while.

Next weekend, on Sunday the 29th of January, the Chief Pontiac Trail committee will have snow snake races at the Edsel Ford Barn. Bring your pet snake and let him (or her) run free at the Edsel Ford Barn. Google to the Chief Pontiac Trail website for more info.

Will the snow last? Well at the time of the writing of this post, the weather man is already calling for high temperatures back up near 50 degrees tomorrow (1/23/12) and a chance of thunderstorms. Get outside and enjoy the snow while it lasts!
