Winter In Cape Cod/ Door County

The winters vary in severity. One winter you will get 3 snowstorms and in-between it will be 40, 50, dare I say 60 degrees? Other winters it is bitter cold with tons of snow, no snow, and any other combination you can possibly think of. What is the deal? Well they say that the warmer than usual  Northern Pacific Ocean this winter will cause a cold snowy winter in the Northeastern U.S. That means I am in trouble. I live in Rhode Island now.

Door County has already seen its first snow of the season and with the wind off of Green Bay All of Door County is down right bone chilling even in 40 degree weather with all that moisture in the air.

I took a few chilly photos in down town Sister Bay.
You won't be sailing today.

 Sunrise is pretty!

 Sometime you need get started on your snow fort early. A dusting of snow won't stop us from having some fun.

Action shot here to the right with my shovel trying really hard to get enough snow for a sweet fort for my three year olds.

Banjo & Mandolin

Ellie needed to have a tuberculosis test read for her teaching job. The good news is she is tuberculosis free the better news is we decided to buy a banjo and mandolin. These models were at or just over 200 bucks a piece. They are perfect for learning on and have great sound. I have had a desire for awhile to learn banjo. After going to the free bluegrass concert the night before I was inspired to get a couple of working models to learn on. I once purchased a 600 dollar electric acoustic guitar when I was 16. Long story short I never learned how to play it. If I had learned I am sure playing banjo would be a lot easier. Ellie is going to practice on the mandolin. She has some guitar skills. Wish both of us luck!
