Again… the wind is dictating our “El Nino” winter weather.  And these ice boats are ready to take advantage of it before the snow falls.  We are under another “Winter Weather Warning” until Thursday at 10am.  I heard this morning that the ice on North Lake Leelanau is about 3 inches thick, which isn’t the best but, I’ve seen ice boats sail on less.  Along with the snow, we are expecting frigid temperatures, so who knows.

Below, Biscuit became acquainted a new member of the Fishtown Preservation Team, Summer Meyer.



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!Winter2-9-16

Where did all the snow person’s hair disappear to?- after we took all the twigs for hair from the porcupine’s leftovers from their pre-superbowel party in the Leland Golf and Country Club’s 11th(?) hole in the woods…
