Winter in the UP - Part 2

Winter is not over yet. Last night we were coming home from town on the snowmobile. It was 40 some degrees that day, so all the snow was slush. When we were half way home we had to cross a creek. We got across it and suddenly got stuck, I mean really stuck, so we gave up and walked a mile and a half home with our backpacks. Today right after breakfast we went out with shovels, a wood pole to break the ice in the snowmobile track, and snowshoes. We got to the stuck snowmobile and it was frozen in place. We kept lifting the snowmobile up and getting the track loose from the ground. We did this for an hour. Finally, we got it unstuck and drove home. When we got back, our clothes were soaking wet. It’s April 12 and it’s snowing hard.
