This weekend there are a lot of things you can do around Deep Creek Lake!

Although the temperatures have been rising a little bit, please still be very careful when you have to be on the road. This rollercoaster weather will bring temperatures in the high thirties today, with a light drizzle that could freeze and make the roadways really slick.

This morning we woke up to a beautiful fall day in Garrett County, MD. In some areas temperatures dropped below freezing, and the lawns had a beautiful white frosty coating. This is the perfect day to go for a walk in one of the Western Maryland’s State Parks, prepare your yard for winter and to bring in your potted plants. In the evening warm up in front of a crackling fire in front of your fireplace. No fireplace to sit . . .

Then again, you probably cannot resist treating yourself to a couple of homemade cookies or that jar . . .
