Seasonal VIP Information
April 24, 2013:
Well we had a warm day today and we are expecting above freezing for tonight, so we will try to get the water on later in the week.
We are still planning on a May 1st opening, and if this warmth holds for another day I am sure we will be all set to open that day.
We are about a month behind in getting spring projects completed because of the weather, so some things will just have to be done after opening day.
I will post again on Monday the 29th, but I think it is safe to plan on the 1st for opening day.

I know some of you are anxious to get back camping, but as you can see by what is below this post, all the posts this winter have been about snow !!! And we still have a lot of it in the campground. We have to wait for the snow to leave and then the frost to let go and the mud to dry up before we can even think about getting the water on. So, we definitely will not be opening before May 1st this year, and I am keeping my fingers crossed that we will even be able to open then. There is lots of debris on the roads from the wind we had this winter and we can't even drive on the roads yet to start clearing the limbs and branches to make the roads passable. So, we have a lot of work to do before you guys can get into the campground.
I will post each Monday from now on, except the 15th because we will be in Nova Scotia for Brian's mothers memorial service. But I will post Tuesday or Wednesday that week.
My best to all, and pray for warm weather to get rid of this snow.

Okay, it's enough already !!
Today we got about a foot of new heavy wet snow.
If you are coming in to check on campers, please park in the upper parking lot and walk in. Our plow truck is down at the moment, so none of the roads have been plowed. And there was a lot of ice on the roads before the snow. So, PLEASE be careful if you are walking in to check campers.
Spring is coming !!!!

We have just received sad news from Joanne Duval (site #14) that her father, Marcel Roux, passed away in Florida yesterday morning after a brave battle with cancer. Marcel and his wife Claire have been on site #225 for the past 3 seasons. They have been married for 57 years, which is an inspiration to us all. Joanne and her husband Michael are currently in Florida with Joanne's parents, but they can be reached with condolences at 105 Cumberland Street, Manchester, NH 03102, or at firstname.lastname@example.org. The Cascade family sends their heartfelt sympathy to Claire and Joanne and their extended families.
On a happier note: THE SNOW IS MELTING !!!
As always my best to you all,

We had a huge storm this weekend that dumped over two feet of snow in the campground. (So much for think spring!) Because the snow was light and fluffy and we had strong winds, some of the snow was blown off camper roofs, but about a foot or more remains on most roofs. This morning the weather service predicted sleet and rain for tomorrow, (Monday the 11th), so that will weigh down the snow that is currently on the roofs. We recommend that you clean off your camper roofs within the next couple of days to prevent sagging or leaks. PLEASE REMEMBER that the roads are not plowed, so you will need to wade through as much as 2 feet of snow or more, where drifting occurred, to get to your campers. As always we have someone who can do that for you for $35.00. If you wish him to clear your roof, please email me at Cascadecampground@comcast.net.
Hope everyone survived the storm with no damage to life, limb or property.
Our best to you all,

We had another snow storm yesterday that dropped about 2-4 inches of snow. But the wind is very strong today, so most of the snow is blowing off campers in all parts of the campground. Still no need to worry about shoveling roofs.
HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL OF YOU FROM ALL OF US!

We had a considerable snow storm yesterday dumping between 6 to 8 inches on the ground. However, the wind was strong during the storm so a good deal of the snow was blown off the camper roofs. As I surveyed the campground this morning it looked to me as though there was about 2 inches of snow on camper roofs. The sun is out today, so some of that will melt. However, we are expecting a small storm tomorrow. I don't think roofs are in danger at this point, but I will post after tomorrow's storm. The roads had not frozen before the storm, so plowing would only dig up the roads. Therefore, we are not plowing the campground roads at this time. High boots are in order if you wish to walk in to check on your camper. DEFINITELY DO NOT DRIVE IN EVEN THOUGH THE GATE IS UP.
My best to you all,

We have exciting news to share with you all.
Casey and Tara got engaged on December 16th.
Casey presented Tara with a lovely diamond ring on the beach in Aruba.
For those of you who have been with us for many years you will remember
Casey when !!! Now our little boy is all grown up.
Cori, Casey and I would like to wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a healthy
and Happy New Year.
We always say "Think Spring" but by the looks of the weather we have had so far
this fall, it looks like it will be here sooner than we think.
