Since the leaves are mostly disposed of, all I have to do is wait for that first snow removal from my driveway. Last year was a mild winter for we here in the midwest. Lake Erie did not freeze up like it usually does. I don't know where the picture was taken but some winters it is possible to walk across our lake if you have the stamina and/or courage. I don't know why you would want to unless you have a daughter living on the other side of the lake in New York state.
