Winter is here even before the calendar says so. We've had a bit of snow and the temperatures have been hovering below zero degree Celsius. Even so, there's nothing like a warm fire in the woodstove and a hot cup of cocoa (or a hot toddy) on a chilly evening up the lake. Purchasing our float cabin was the best thing we ever did. Why don't you come up and see what Powell Lake has to offer.
