Vol XV # 352 – Meggen’s Monday

  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!         

Vol XV # 350 – The Nicest Day in March So Far

  Another one of those days like yesterday.  A lot of visitor traffic in Fishtown and as a matter of fact all over.  The only snow around  is in plow piles.  Some concern about too early temperature rises, probability of freezing and it’s effect on cherries and grapes.       

Vol XV # 348 – A Cloudy & Cool Thursday

Not much happening today, it’s cool and gray. On the way to town this morning I came upon a group of turkeys crossing M22. The boss turkey in full blown feathers all fanned out turned and started marching straight toward me in my lane.  I of course stopped and he approached the front of the Jeep to the point where… Read more »

Vol XV # 347 – Rain Rain Go Away

Vol XV # 346 – A Nice Tuesday

One year… Read more »

Vol XV # 345 – Meggen’s Monday

Today’s photographs are from a couple of hikes taken over the weekend in our nearby national lakeshore. The melting snow made patterns all over the dunes. It was still chilly enough that it probably wasn’t melting very fast while we were out there.          

Vol XV # 344 – Chasing Cloud Formations

Cloudy skies at get-up, a rather depressing looking morning.  In general our winter sky is cloudy or overcast and lake effect something.  Winter 2016 has been more cloudy due to Big Blue not icing over.  It can be sunny in Green Bay and with westerly winds, snowing here.  The point here being…  when I see outstanding cloud formations, I search for… Read more »
