Adirondack Family Calendar of Events: January 7-9, 2011

The snow is back and now we are just waiting for the lakes and ponds to be frozen thick enough to go out and skate. Please keep in mind that this thaw significantly thinned any ice so be careful before attempting any lake activities.  Have a wonderful weekend around the Adirondacks whether you are inside all cozy and warm or outside in all the winter white.
