Vol XVI # 033 – A Rainy Sunny Day

A interesting day in the Land of Delight’s weather, the sun was shinning and it was raining.  Biscuit and I stopped by to see Leif at his Fishtown Shop.  No doubt about it, Leif has developed into one of Leelanau Counties favorite artists joining the likes of Fred Petroskey, Gene Rantz, Ken Scott and so many others that we are… Read more »

Vol XVI # 031 – Have a Cup a Coffee

  A cloudy, breezy beginning to what has become a beautiful April day.  Still on the chilly side, but the weekend promises to be better.  Leland shops that were closed for the winter are beginning to open for the season.  Biscuit and I stopped by Blue Boat Coffee to say hello to Joe and Greta Campo.  Joe is co-owner along with Nels… Read more »

Vol XVI # 030 – When Winter is Really Over

A busy day that left me scrambling for pictures to take for this report.  Van’s Beach and South Beach were easy because Biscuit and I are there every morning.  On Reynolds Street, the snow is collected from all over town and dumped there until it melts.        

Vol XVI # 029 – What’s Happening Around Town?

A lot of activity around town getting Leland ready for the season.  Above… Manitou Transit is rebuilding the dock.  Below… the firehouse in it’s latest stages.  Lawn care workers cleaning up everywhere.  Store owners getting their businesses ready.  It’s still a little chilly, but I’m sure it will warm up, it always does.        

Vol XVI # 010 – A Phonogenic Day

  Another one of those in-between clippers day. That beautiful blue sky is clouding up in preparation of another clipper system on it’s way.  In spite of the cold, the sun is high enough to melt the last snow preparing it for the next… irritating.  The TV weather persons show warming a couple of days away, never tomorrow, always couple… Read more »

Vol XVI # 004 – A April Snow Day

No surprises this morning when the snow began to fall except for the amount.  The forecast said 1 inch accumulation and we got 3.  Actually it was a lot of fun to see half dollar sized snowflakes falling at times.  Tomorrow is good for 3 more.  Tuesday back up into the 40’s, so much for April snow.  

Vol XV #326 – They Say Sunshine… Maybe

Nothing much happening around town today.  The weather people say that there will be sunshine… someplace, but not here yet.  In fact, at the moment there are snowflakes in the air.  In the forecast… warming for a couple of days with possible rain drops. And then, of course, falling temperatures. The Leland Report Book is going to happen! 120 Pages… Read more »

Vol XV #322 – It’s A Real Winter Day

D No doubt about it…  It’s a real winter day.  Visibility zero at times on the road and only one car without headlights.  Two degrees at get-up is the coldest so far this season, the record low is 10 below.  Not many people out today. The Leland Report/Leif Spork Snow Gauge contest is closed. We had a total of 47 entries. We… Read more »
