Greetings and welcome!

I am sorry that it has been so long. August found me very busy and brought plenty of distractions. Even now I only have a couple of minutes to visit.

The weather has been a little cooler that is typical. We had some hot and humid weather and some storms, but nothing too hot or severe. More recently we have hit a cool stretch. Earlier this week we had a day that didn’t even hit 60 degrees. That isn’t very typical for August.

This weekend is the Marinette Co Fair, and it starts tonight. Here is a link.

Here are more event posters..

From Chris’ event calendar..

Aug. 8
Amberg Community Assoc. Annual Duck Run at Mosquito Park
Starts at 11am, public is invited. Paddle wheel, raffles, food and refreshments. Ducks for sale at Mathis Hardware, Driftwood Sport & Fuel, Amberg Pub.

We had a couple of lines of storms roll through yesterday. They brought lightning, heavy rain, and a few wind gusts. There were reports of wind damage and hail over by Rhinelander, but nothing to speak of here. I did see a few hail stones in the heavy rain, but they were peanut sized and there weren’t many of them.

The second line turned into a beast as it moved east. There were pictures on the news from Oconto and Oconto Falls with 3″+ hailstones. One was as big as the palm of the guy’s hand. Door Co took some wind damage too.

There was a 100 acre wildfire near Parkway and Hwy W last weekend. They had several DNR crews as well as several local fire departments, and it still took a while to tame the blaze. Dry conditions were a factor in the size and difficulty of the fire.

That is news from here. Have a good week and thank you for visiting!
