The first significant snowfall of the year at Gilbert Lodge near Brainerd, MN.  The bird feeder is covered with snow.

Tree limbs are heavy with snow.

A ruler shows 9 inches of wet snow on a tree stump, which translates into about an inch of water when it melts.

The 1988 model John Deere snow thrower started on the first pull after sitting idle in the garage for four months.  It is a great American-made product to be proud of.

Mark is shown here clearing snow from the Gilbert Lodge main drive-through.  After the initial sweep to get most of the snow off, he went back and did the final clean-up at high-speed.

Temperatures were in the mid-20's with little wind making the job relatively easy.  The driveway is always cleared early so as not to inconvenience the guests at Gilbert Lodge.

Eleven-inches of new snow fell March 1st and 2nd bringing the total to 20 inches.
