This weekend started with Winter Storm “Kade”. With freezing rain encasing trees in ice and transitioning into just about the biggest dump of snow all winter, the storm left nearby communities without power. Fortunately, we were still 100% powered up due to our ample generators powering everything at camp. In fact, the lights of Point O’Pines on the lake brought in some of our neighbors to have a warm meal in our dining room (and restaurant).
On Saturday, the great Peak of 2020 rolled into camp for their winter visit. We played in the snow and took a walk out towards Schultzs’ Island, and even lost and found two phones in the snow (oops!). We came back inside with some warm hot chocolate and started planning. These organized Peakers-on-the-rise shared great ideas, and we were so impressed with how they were able to make decisions together. 2020 is going to be a great summer at Point O’Pines!
Starting last night our electricity in our town is coming back bit-by-bit with the hard work of line crews. We spent the morning having brunch together and a last dose of fun in the snow. We had to say tearful goodbyes to our 2020 Peakers, but we know camp is just around the corner in less than 138 days. See you all soon!
