Forecast for 1/28/15 – Snow Showers – High: 34° – Low: 19°


No new snow this am, but still had to shovel maybe an inch left over from last night.  The forecast is calling for a Clipper system to come ashore this evening around 7 with 1 to 3 inches perhaps.  The problem with that forecast is that rain may develop.

Below is my personal tribute to someone who was a major part of our lives going back 56 and more years ago both in Riverside, IL and Leland.  We were the movers and shakers of the late 50’s through 70’s and into the 80’s.  We were young, we were fearless.  Rest in peace Diana, we will meet again someday and do it again.



On Nov 28, we were fortunate to tag along with the crew of the Joy when it moved into the shop for refurbishing. Here is a video Jim put together on the process.


The Leland Report/Leif Spork Snow Gauge contest is closed. We had a total of 47 entries. We will report the final tally on 4/30/16!
