Vol XVI # 016 – What A Nice Day It Turned Out To Be

To todays pictures are of soon to be occupied spaces.  More and more people are returning to Leelanau County from winter hideaways. Still a few pockets of snow here and there.   Below is the latest posting of the Snow Report.

Vol XVI # 008 – Winter Ends When Winter Ends

The pictures say it all… what a miserable day. Another clipper coming tomorrow morning.  With vast swings in the temperature, I think there would be concerns about apples, cherries and grapes which are going to bud soon.  Memories of 2014, when we had, 257 inches of total snowfall on this date.  We were well into May before the ice on… Read more »
