Greetings and welcome!

It has been a very busy week for me so I haven’t had a chance to update. Even now I should be somewhere else, so it will be a quick visit.

In events this weekend we have the Lakewood Arts & Crafts Festival Saturday from 9-3. In Laona they are having their community soup, bring your own bowl. The Townsend Flowage Association is having a Corn Roast fundraiser Saturday, and there is a corn 73015aroast at EverBreeze too. When I was traveling Hwy 8 earlier in the week I saw a sign that said that this was the weekend of the Shrine Picnic. That is on Shrine Rd north of 8.

Last but not least is the Bear Point Yacht Club Menominee River Float Trip. This time they are adding a meat raffle. Those are always popular around here.

Critter sightings this week included a few deer, lots of turkeys, and a fox last night. The road pizza award goes to the porcupines, several of which I have seen after their demise.

We are on the eve of a blue moon. It is the second full moon of the month, and the full moon is around 5am tomorrow.

Tonight we have a chance at some northern lights. There is a magnetic storm watch out. If the clouds stay away we could get a show.

It was a warm week with temps in the low 90s. Today was a lot nicer with 80s and a little wind. We had a thunderstorm roll through at about 6pm that brought a few rumbles and some heavy rains, and it will bring in a little cooler air. The mist in the valleys was very pretty at sunset.

The weekend looks nice. Look for a high/low of about 80/60. The NWS as a 20% chance of showers from Friday on, and it jumps to 30% Sunday.

Have a good weekend and thank you for visiting!
