The Spring Melt Continues
What snow? If you are tuning in from the southern part of Michigan - or maybe the East Coast, you might think that the snow is deep and the winter is still raging to the north. Not here! We have had little snow in Roscommon for over two months. The National Weather Service reported that the amount of preciptation measured at its Gaylord Office was the lowest on record. Roscommon probably had less. Surprisingly, Cross Country Skiing has still been good thanks to a December rain that froze hard and has made a stable base. The warm weather of the last couple days is coloring the ground with shades of brown quickly.
