Eleventh Hour



Nothing like waiting for the last minute to pull the boat from the lake.



The wind storm broke the rope that was holding the raft. I had to fetch it from halfway down the lake. The little electric trolling motor had no difficulty pulling it back home.

If you look closely at the far shore you can see a light coating of snow. The mountains in the distance are the White Mountains.

My van is in the shop so my daughter and my son-in-law came up with their truck to help me pull the boat. I stayed nice and dry until it came time to put the boat on the trailer. It got hung up on the skids so I had to wade out to move it. I'm not saying the water was cold, but there was ice forming on the north side of the lake. It was very nice to be able to climb into a warm truck.

It was sunny and the temperature got up into the high 30s.

    1. It could not be much colder without being ice.

    1. Just a little reminder of why you live in a warm climate now.

  4. That's a beautiful lake.

    At least the job is done now. Going in that cold water like that is a great way to get sick, but you do what you have to do I guess.

    1. Thank you. It's a good place to live.

      You do what you have to do. I wasn't wet and cold too long. The heater in the truck was blasting. Then I got in a warm house, dry clothes and a hot cup of coffee.

    1. Okay,misunderstood. I'm pretty much due north of the Whites, so not really a good view of the Great Gulf Wilderness -I think. . .
