Greetings and welcome!
The big weekend is almost here. Well.. as my favorite line in the movie Twister goes.. “It isn’t coming, it’s already here..“. When I went to Crivitz after work tonight it was pretty nuts. A lot of people apparently have tomorrow off, and some of them are already here. Expect some company this weekend.
I have a long list of events today.
Let’s start with Amberg. They are having a parade Saturday. That is all that I know, though I’d speculate that they are having a picnic and fireworks as well.
Here are some links to other towns and events events in no particular order.
Kid’s Fishing Tournament-Birch Hills Resort Townsend
Bring Repel. Some places aren’t bad for gators (mosquitoes), some are. I used up all of my stashed cans of Repel in the past few weeks and got tagged 6.79 for a can tonight. Owie. Don’t tell the retailer, but it is still worth the money if you hit a cloud of ’em.
People that like to go out prowling for bargains will like all of the rummage sale and garage sale signs that I have been seeing the past few days. There were plenty of them so you shouldn’t have to wander far to find some bargains.
There is a 20-30% chance of showers or storms tomorrow night as a little disturbance from a low pressure area up in Canada comes our way.
It doesn’t look like much on the models, but with some sun and convection it could turn into some rain. Right now the TV weather channel is showing a line of light showers that sort of scatters as it comes our way. The GFS is showing it a little more robust than that, but mostly after dark.
Beyond that the weekend looks very nice. Until Sunday afternoon we are expecting fair weather and temps in the low to mid-80s.
The skies should be fairly clear for star gazing, but it was a full moon Wednesday. According to the solunar tables moonrise is at 9:48 Friday, and 10:28 Saturday. Sunset is at 8:45 both days.
Along that line, there is some cool stuff happening this weekend in stargazing. Take a look if you are into that sort of thing.
One last thought.. When I was going to Crivitz at about 5pm all of the road crews had cleared out of the construction zone between Crivitz and Wausaukee. It is still a construction zone, so watch out for those double fines. They are progressing well with the passing lanes, and should be done with that phase of construction in a few weeks. It will be very nice to have those passing lanes when they are done.
That is about it from here. Have fun and be safe this weekend, and thank you for visiting!
