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.

Free Plant Catalogs

I have long wanted to start a farm. Land in Door County is not cheap, but it isn't horrible in price either. The soils vary greatly. In some places the bed rock is just feet or inches below. The soil is rocky and really not that great. In other places the soil is deep and fantastic. Anyway, as I dream away about the perfect property to start my farm here is a list of  the plant catalogs that you can get delivered for free. Once you get these catalogs you can dream of your perfect garden or orchard.
