Vol XVI – #323 – Wind Out of the West at 40 Plus

Hard to believe that the forecast for next week has temperatures near 50, but that’s winter in the Leelanau.  This morning with wind blowing 40 or more and horizontal snow, it certainly wasn’t the most pleasant of start-ups.    A free 2017 Leland Report Calendar is now shipping with all book orders!  http://www.artistasylum.com/book/h7b12a9f3#h7b12a9f3
