Girl's Weekend AKA A Minnesota Hurricane!

OK--another Girl's Weekend has come and gone! This one was a little different than most, to be sure. We are a hardy bunch of gals--no sissies here. We've been doing the weekend for many years now and have run into a LOT of different weather situations: hot, cold, rainy, windy, etc. and we take it in stride, dress for the weather, and play outside anyways. This year we ended up spending almost the entire time inside the cabin! lol I went up on Friday afternoon because it was a beautiful day and I wanted to sit in the sun and read a book! And I did! For about 3 hours and then the wind started to blow. My sis-in-law showed up and we went and sat on the other dock which was out of the wind a bit more and had a nice time up until right about dusk when the wind really picked up and it started to drizzle. The next thing you know we are in the middle of a big thunderstorm and the wind is raging and whistling through the trees. It never stopped! lol The temps dropped down into the 30's and 40's--the winds were constant at about 40-50mph and we were even blessed with some snow! At one point I thought for sure the cabin was going to be picked up --ala Wizzard of Oz--and tossed to a new location! Anyways, so we just had to stay inside and play the whole time. It was fun, but I had really been looking forward to doing some outdoorsy stuff. Oh well. Oh, AND I neglected to put fresh batteries in my camera and it pooped out on me the first time I used it. I did manage to get a pic of my friend in her annual "bra" picture, but that was it. We've decided that we got gyped and are going to re-schedule a little later in the year. Soooo, how was your weekend?? :-D

How fun! I can't believe you had snow and everything - I'm just happy that you made it back in one piece after all that!!!

What a bummer about your camera!

Sounds like you had fun, though : )

I LOVE girls weekends - they are so much fun and it's nice to just let your hair down and let loose (knowing it won't come back to haunt you later!) Glad you had a good time!

I would love to be trapped inside a cabin with nothing to do but read and play cards. Fun! Can't work on the tan from inside though. At least, you have another weekend to look forward to.
