After the snow...

Jean Papke took the above photo of Singer Castle on Dark Island today and reminds us that there are only 20 days until Spring, and 79 days until the castle's next seasonal opening. She adoringly notes the melting ice (though surely temporary) as a harbinger for good times, weather-wise, to come soon.

Rapid weather change at the castle on Dark Island

Winter photo 2/4/13 by Jean Papke

The weather can change quickly in the Thousand Islands. Just days ago we showed Singer Castle surrounded by whitecap waves produced by high winds. Today we blog a picture with the St. Lawrence River already frozen over on a sunny day.
