Winter and the new year are here, and we're getting several dustings of snow! It's so good to see even more in the high country. That will mean plenty of water for this summer. Rain and snow are mixed with sunny days. That's when we see more cabin owners up the lake to check things out, and enjoy the uncrowded winter setting. Several properties have recently sold, so don't wait too long. Summer will be here before you know it. Purchasing our float cabin home was the best thing we ever did. Why don't you come up and see what Powell Lake has to offer.
