There was a threat of snow, but we brought our golf clubs anyway – a part of our annual boys weekend tradition. We drove to the cabin in a cold rain, and by the time we went to bed, a layer of slush was sticking to the deck.
10 inches of heavy wet snow greeted us in the morning. Clubs, of course, never left the car. Getting around was a huge challenge. We shoveled a couple basic trails from cabin to cabin to dock, and felt only a bit less claustrophobic.
The familiar scent of burning birch, then, with a turn, seeing smoke rising from the chimney outside the sauna/guest cabin provided the easy answer.
Bad weather is a relative term. 10 inches of snow can put a damper on a commute to work or golf trip to the cabin. A cold rainy day can limit your Saturday to do list. Yet bad weather is wonderful weather for enjoying a sauna session. Long rounds in the hot room complemented by long sessions outside, smiling at what nature brings.
