miles: 2992

Yes, we are here at the lake.

Our last morning in Montana as we headed toward the Idaho border.

Thursday at 12:30 we pulled up in front of the house. We were very, very happy to have arrived.

Rick the Gas Technician was waiting for us, as there was in issue lighting the pilots on the gas water heaters. That was solved quickly and we spent some time unloading the car.

And then we had to say hello to the lake.

The path was blocked by one of the trees that went down this winter. We’re so glad it didn’t hit the deck on its way down. The boys are going to have a lot of work to do when they get here.

Here you can see how low the water is now. It is rising slowly and there has been a difference since Thursday.

Pretty amazing!

We have vowed to eat everything in the freezer before I start cooking again. Yesterday we had meatloaf. Today I defrosted a little container of meatballs. Tomorrow is mac & cheese, along with a loaf of banana bread.

We’re unpacking slowly. All the things for the cabin (and there were a lot of them) have been transferred to our “mountain” Highlander for a trip up to the cabin. Snow is going to have to melt a bit more, I’m afraid. Banjo Man doesn’t think he can drive in there yet.

I wouldn’t put it past him to try.

    As the snow melts, the lake fills. Here’s to thawing!

  2. And the sun is shining on the snowcapped mountains this morning. 🙂
