As I write these Daily Notes early Monday evening we are getting some frozen precipitation. The weather for Tuesday calls for a slight chance of flurries and freezing drizzle before 7:00 am, then a chance of snow showers. The high for the day is expected to be 32 degrees, with a low in the evening of around 23 degrees.
Be on the lookout for the Blind Skiers every Tuesday and Wednesday at the Wisp for the next four weeks Jan 28-29, Feb 4-5, 11-12 and 18-19. They just need a little extra space going down the slope and we have the operators slow the lift when they are getting on and off. There’s still time to help out as a guide if you’re a skier (or a snowboarder, to take pictures). Contact Deep Creek Lake Lions on their Facebook page or call Joey at 301.616.4586.
Moving from the slopes to the summer, I heard Bill’s Marine Service is now accepting reservations for boats for the 2020 season. They can be reached at 301.387.5535.

The Maryland Department of Natural Resources plans to release over 77,000 trout into Garrett County waters in the Spring. Here’s a link to the latest schedule, by location and showing amounts planned for each location. With that many fish out there even I should be able to catch one!
I know all of our readers have been on the edge of their seat waiting for this news: CandyStore.com reports that Iconic SweetHearts conversation candy hearts are back this year, but production issues apparently plagued their new manufacturer. They reviewed a sample of the new SweetHearts and found: 65% had no markings on them at all – completely blank, 24% had unintelligible misprints, 8% had partially printed phrases, Only 3% had full, well-placed phrases. Well, regardless, they probably still taste good and anyway, I’ll be at the lake with my sweetheart on Valentines Day…
