Shore To Shore Ice On White Sand Lake On November 7th


White Sand Lake in Baxter was frozen over from shore to shore as of Thursday, November 7th.

Whether or not this is temporary will depend on what the second half of the month holds in store.  But, there’s no doubt about it, this has been a numbing November so far.  The weekend leading into Veterans Day also put drivers to the test with our first icy roads of the season.

This brings several questions to mind.

  • Is that it for the fall season?
  • Did you make an appointment to have the furnace inspected?
  • Have you confirmed our reservations in Florida yet?  (Oh, come on!  It’s not time to run away yet!)
  • Where are my insulated long johns?

It’s “reality check” time in Minnesota.
