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.

Sister Bay Labor Day Weekend Extraviganza

Sister Bay is hoping with activity this weekend! There was a fireman pancake breakfast Saturday morning, fireworks Saturday nigh, and a ski show Sunday. There are camel rides for kids shopping and all sorts of things to eat. Its a bit crazy if you are anti- social or can't stand crowds, but there is plenty of fun to be had by all. There was a kiddo boat ride I tried to get my boys on. We bought tickets and put Lee-lee on and he started crying. The ride operator helped him off and told us to get a refund. That was nice. We decided to walk up the main drag and grab some goat cheese honey ice cream it was smooth and creamy. We walked down toward the marina and sat at a grassy park under some shade trees watching the water skiing show. The 3 folks tall pyramid thing is pretty impressive.
We decided to walk home hope on our bikes and ride to Piggy Wiggly to get some potatoes to go with some steaks that will be grilled. Its a lazy, yet eventful day before labor day. Sister Bay is the place to be to experience it all and then some.

-P.S. To the motorcyclist who yelled at my wife to get the blank off the road when she was on her bicycle. She was being super safe and mindful of her surrounding, wearing a helmet and all. Door County is a great place to ride bicycle. Door County should be enjoyed going at a slower pace. Bicycling allows you to enjoy it at a perfect pace in my opinion. There would be no motorcycle without the mighty bicycle. There are a lot of folks who could vent frustrations on various modes of transportation. Anyway, life is short and bicycles and motorized vehicles don't mix. The day a true bike lane is installed on all the roads will be a really fun and safe day. Yelling at folks around here or anywhere is barbaric and classless. There is plenty Door County for everyone!
