Another Big Reason Why I Don't Much Care for Winter and Snow

Yesterday, I attended the wake of a friend of ours from Donovan's Reef in Twin Lakes, Wisconsin. Mike was 71 and spent winters at his condo in Clearwater Beach, Florida. He had worked in Chicagoland but had always vacationed in Twin Lakes where he and Maryanne bought a house just up the street from Donovan's.

This year, they had decided to remain in Twin Lakes to have Christmas with family and were planning on leaving for Florida on January 9th. However, we received 12 inches of snow on the 7th and he was out clearing his driveway on Friday the 8th when he had a massive heart attack.

We often played NTN with him at Donovan's and he will be greatly missed. He was one of the friendliest guys you'd ever want to meet.
