It was so pretty this morning with a fresh layer of the fluffy white stuff. It's still not enough to snowmobile on around here; my husband and his pals will be heading up north tomorrow to do a little snowmobiling. Hopefully soon we'll have enough to keep him closer to home. He's at his happiest when he's riding some sort of machinery through the woods.

Larry King reports that there's well over a foot of ice on Unity Pond and the fish are biting. You can access the lake at the boat launch site at Kanokolus. After a day of fishing there are several places to warm up and have a hot or cold drink and some warm eats: Mammie's, Spanky's, UHOP and The Depot Store.

The Unity Snow Dusters Snowmobile Club has recently replaced its roof with a metal one from the Amish. They are looking at making additional upgrades to the clubhouse in the near future.

I encourage you to join the club, even if you are not able to physically help with trail work. Those monies go to keeping the clubhouse open and the trails usable. When you go to register your sled at the Unity Town Office, there are membership forms available there. You can also get one by contacting any of the club members or Josh at Chase Toys.

If you haven't been to Chase Toys lately, you should go check out their new showroom. And, as always, they have a great selection of new and used sleds, ATVs, riding gear, Husqvarna saws and accessories.
