The wind roared all last night and sounded like a train rolling through. The sun now shines but wind still blows.
The wind rules again today and the lights are flickering. We are on our way to the Big City By the Bay.
It began grand, but didn’t stay that way.
Hello… It’s Autumn again, summer in November can’t last forever.
A blustery, cloudy beginning. Not many people in town and Fishtown was empty. Only stores open were Carlson’s Fish Shanty and Larry at the Shoe Store. We are back on Standard Time and I hope there is a movement to get rid of DST sometime in the future.
A beautiful beginning to a colorful day. The color is at peak along the shoreline but not as brilliant as in past years. This weekend should be good for touring but for the rain predicted for Saturday.
Not as nice as yesterday, but not the worst. Another one of those “little bit of everything” days with some raindrops in the AM, sunshine at noon and overcast to mostly cloudy later. Leelanau County is reaching peak color this weekend with temperatures in the mid fifties, sunshine Thursday thru Saturday. Possible showers Saturday PM.
Another one of those days that had everything Mother Nature could bring. Deep dark clouds with pockets of blue and billowing whites. Drizzle at times with periods of snow. Temperature in the forties with wind gusts in the twenties. Leelanau County color is shown on TV at 50% with the peak predicted next weekend.
The day began with big waves splashing over the breakwall along with BB sized hale. A rainbow graced the western sky as a lonely surfer fought the wind, waves and rain. In the early afternoon occasional pockets of blue opened up, what can you say other than it’s an eclectic weather day.
A lot of parking spaces available in town this afternoon. Gale force winds make outdoor activities not much fun unless you’re surfing or kite boarding. Color is developing rapidly in the areas with a lot of maples. This coming weekend should be nice to color tour.
