Vol XV #305 - Clipper On the Way
Vol XV #307 - The Day the Sun Came Out


We were waiting for the Clipper to arrive at around 7 pm last night with 1 to 3 inches of new snow.  It did arrive, but with drizzle and was on it’s way east 45 minutes later.  35 degrees at get-up and breezy.  Upper 30’s and 40’s predicted for the weekend which is needed to get rid of a lot of snow accumulation.

My wife and I will be celebrating our 55th wedding anniversary at Funistrada tonight.  Below… Fire Station update.



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!

55 Years! That sounds like a long time, but I imagine if it is like so many wonderful things life has to offer, it went by pretty quickly! You certainly have a lot to be proud of as a result of your devotion to one another… it isn’t lost on your LR fans that admire your example.
