Vol XV #247 – Meggen’s Monday

  Today’s photos are from a special event that took place on Saturday. It is a privilege to grab the camera and head out the door with the intention of photographing a bald eagle – and know that you’ll actually see one. Wings of Wonder’s Founder and CEO Rebecca Lessard released “Miracle Boy” after describing the treatment her organization provided… Read more »

Vol XV #246 – There’s No Joy in Fishtown

Today was forecasted to be mostly sunny to partly cloudy and indeed it started out that way only to be completely overcast by noon.  Along with there not being any JOY in Fishtown, there is no sunshine.  In spite of Thanksgiving Day being rainy, it was a wonderful day to be with our families.     Don’t forget about 20% off everything… Read more »

Vol XV #245 – Why Did the Joy Cross the Road?

(Today’s report is from Jim) Our eyes in Leland alerted us about the effort to move the Joy to Stander Marine for some needed R&R (Repaint and Refurbish).

Vol XV #244 – A Windy Day After

(Today’s report is from Jim) Crowded day in Leland this morning with the PJ Party and Sale going on.

Vol XV #242 – It’s the Day Before Turkey Day

A nice start-up sky to begin a new day. The Turkey Day forecast isn’t the greatest, but… could be worse.  Our early morning clear sky was highlighted by a very bright setting full moon.

Vol XV #239 – First Snow, But Not the Last

The Windy City (Chicago & Suburbs) got 16 inches in one of those 100 year storms.  Leelanau County was on the edge of that system and got variable results.  Our Sutton’s Bay reporter, Leif, claims 6.5 inches while Leland at best, maybe 1.5 inches.  Never the less it’s apparently a beautiful day to go surfing and we start our Snow Report for the 15/16 season. … Read more »

Vol XV #238 – What’s New in Leland Today?

The wind finally came to a halt and it’s snowing south of us.  Radar shows a system moving to the northeast and we are on the fringe.  it’s supposed to be snowing here, but at the moment I don’t see anything here in Leland yet.
