Vol XVI – #226 – Roadside Views

  Took a tour of some out of the way roads I’ve not traveled on for some time.  Leelanau Country is rich in farm beauty.  I retired in 1988 from Case IH after working 31 years at the International Harvester Farm Equipment  Research and Engineering Center located west of Chicago on 500 acres of experimental farmland.  I enjoy touring the back roads and seeing… Read more »

Vol XVI – #207 – A Lotta Color Out There

A great day to see the color as it develops around the county from Northport to Cedar.  We welcomed the sunshine as the forecast for the next seven days calls for cloudy skies.   The 2017 Leland Report Calendar is available for pre-order!

Vol XVI # 050 – More Nice Days Are On The Way

  Overnight temperatures were below freezing for most of the Upper/Lower.  Cherry blossoms are the main concern when it drops to below 30 degrees.  Last year, grapes took the hit.  The forecast is… nicer days are on the way.  It looks nice and is starting to feel nice.        

Vol XVI # 047 – Looks Nice, But Doesn’t Feel Nice

Brrr… Winter returned with wind out of the north and near freezing temperatures with snow showers.  The sky opened up around noon and turned a beautiful blue.  Fishtown looked picture postcard good except there were no visitors.  Sunday afternoon on a sun shinny day in May and there ain’t nobody there.      

Vol XVI # 046 – Wind, Rain and Then the Sun Came Out

A wintery beginning with rain, wind and dark skies.  Not a nice morning at all.  Falling Waters had a full house with guests for a Leland wedding, hopefully not on the beach. And then the skies began to clear at noon and the sun took over.  The wind dominated the beach scene and kites began to fly.  What kind of a… Read more »

Vol XVI # 045 – Friday the 13th

  A cloudy startup with interesting patterns.  Crossing the bridge over the Carp River I saw today’s main picture.  Looking west out over Fishtown there was blue sky. Late morning provided that sunshine to bask in.  But, it’s still Spring and it changes by the hour if not the minute.  Tomorrow the forecast promises cooler air with rain or snow showers… Read more »
