Actually it wasn’t very nice before 9. Thunder and lightning for most of the pre dawn hours. There was a brief moment that the sky had a opening, other than that… rain.
It’s a foggy day here, really foggy. Drove to town in a cloud with a car coming toward me with no headlights, I didn’t hit it. By noon the sun tried to burn through and it turned out to be a nice day.
It’s a rainy day here. As I pulled in to the parking lot by the harbor this morning, an otter scampered by on land near the Manitou Isle. A few minutes went by and it emerged beneath the dock. Enjoy the rain – it promises spring flowers!

Tomorrow the temperature… Read more »

The snow which has dominated our landscape is disappearing rapidly. The downside: One of the better iceboating seasons coming to an end, berging probably not an event as well as any activity associated with snow and ice. One year… Read more »
