    Instagram recently disabled the "Spider Lake Social" account.  Your SCLA volunteers have spent many hours attempting to reach Instagram to find a solution to what appears to be a mistake by Instagram in disabling our account.  We have not succeeded in reaching any support member of Instagram to help us reactivate our account.   Stay tuned, as we continue to try to fix this problem.  If we need to create a new account (with a new name), we will let you know.  And, if you have a solution for us, please send us an email to help us!!! 

    Many Thanks.  We are back in winter wonderland this morning, with 4-5 fresh inches of snow!!!
