Vol XV #206 – Not as Nice as Yesterday

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.  

Vol XV #203 – Another Eclectic October Day

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.       

Vol XV #202 – Leland, Somewhere Under a Rainbow

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.       

Vol XV #199 – Hold Your Hats, Wind Gusting to 31 MPH

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.
