Yesterday was the day the snow wouldnt quit, while we only gained a few inches during the day it just kept coming down all day and looked great out there. Once again I think we had record sleds in Frederic for a Saturday. Alot of families out there and at one time across the street I saw 3 tow behind snow coaches at the same time. The campfire was good all day and its going again this morning. Now on to today, I dont like the sun as its way to bright out there and its 32 out right now. I am hoping we can hold this to make it to 6 good weeks in a row but we will have to see how the next few days shape up. Trailer counts at the Days Inn this morning were 14 and 45 at the Ramada. The word still needs to get spread to anyone you know that rides that they need to be aware of where they are riding and to stay away from the railroad tracks. Here is the post from the sheriff department on the fatal accident from yesterday morning. The count is now up to 13.
