2011 Year in Review Long Lake Style

What do you remember about 2011? Well already a day has gone by and I’m sure I missed something. So maybe you got to spend a lot of time in Long Lake this year, or maybe you kept in touch via updates and twitter and your friends and relatives. Maybe you drove down Route 30/28N and decided to spontaneously stay for the night and found a Barber Shop Quartet singing on the beach or Martin Sexton signing autographs. Long Lake is small, but makes the most of the seasons and even though we’re off the beaten path and not right off the railroad tracks or the Northway, we still have our fingers on the pulse (from a quiet distance)

The video is a timeline with both events in and around Long Lake and Raquette Lake interspersed with some images of notable news figures of the past year. Trivia is so popular an event, one of the upcoming questions may revolve around some of the images in this piece – so watch carefully.

What did we miss? I know you’ll be sure to tell me.

See you in 2012. Enjoy the show. Moonlighter’s Snowmobile Club Winter Carnival is coming up on January 14, 2012.. THINK SNOW!

Driving Around Long Lake Checking the Roads

Long Lake, NY March 7, 2011. The Snowstorm we hoped didn’t exist dumped between 18-24 inches of snow depending on the yard stick used. The banks have reached epic proportions for Long Lake. The video doesn’t do the actual scenery justice.

The snow has tapered off leaving mounds of snowpiles, cars yet to be unburied and many many driveways seeking a plow out. The music for this video is Deep Forest, Spa Music. Figured that driving around in a snowstorm in Long Lake is as close to the spa as we’re going to get today.[wpvideo JcO33MkL]
