Yesterday and last night I was supposed to attend a winter camping workshop. I was supposed to learn how to build a type of snow shelter called a quinzhee and then spend the night in it. I was going to take step-by-step photos of the quinzhee-building process and turn them into a really sweet blog post for you today.
Then I caught the stomach flu that’s been going around.
Feeling all better today, but I have a sad lack of snow shelter photos to share. Instead, here’s a different image depicting what life is like during the North Woods winter.
This is the road that I live on. We haven’t seen the pavement since November. So note to all, if you don’t like the idea of driving on a layer of compacted snow and ice for five months out of the year, don’t move to northern Wisconsin! I don’t really mind it – you just have to be willing to drive sloooowly when necessary.
