Waiting For The Rain In Woodyboaterville

Sunset in Reedville

Around here yesterday it was too hot to do anything, including boating. Very humid, no breeze and hot. Hotter than a _________ fill in the blank. Anyway, the fellow citizens of WoodyBoaterville seemed to all be in the same boat. WOW. What a great sunset. Dramatic skies, and welcome rain to all our lawns.

    Working our way around Northern Lakes MI and Huron this summer. Currently in Escanaba and on our way to Fayette and back to Door County. About 150 miles West of Hessel. Looking for warm weather. Highs in the upper 60’s to low 70’s. Lows, mid to upper 40s to low 50’s. Rain and wind seems like every other day. Dropped the SS off with Alex before we left.

    Gorgeous photos! While it sounds dry on the east coast, we’ve had a very windy, wet spring & early summer here in northern KY. We’ve only been out on the water 3 times & spent them dodging logs & branches. After many 90 degree days, this morning isn’t predicted to reach 70 till 11am. But tomorrow is back to 90.

    My buddy who runs a golf course near Brainerd Minnesota (International Boat show this September) tells me that he hasn’t turned on his sprinkler system yet this year! It rains every other day and has rarely hit 80. Our lake is up over a foot and the dam is wide open.

    The forecast high for this weekend’s little boat show is 77 degrees and partly cloudy. It’s cooler on the coast!
