I replaced all the missing letters on the yellow sign yesterday...the first day in SEVERAL days without wind. BUT, not to get excited! We are expecting 25 mph winds again today with gusts up to 40!!! THIS time if there are any naughty or weird messages left on that board (due to missing letters) I will take a photo of it and worry about what it says later!
IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE CLOSE TO 80 HERE TODAY!!!
We have some campers who stopped at the rest area west of St. Ignace yesterday. They said the mosquitoes there were HORRIBLE and the black flies were in swarms. The mosquito part really surprised me because, KNOCK WOOD, we haven't had that issue and I thought the St. Ignace/Straits area had been having about the same weather that we have been having.
Our daughter and her boyfriend will be arriving about 3 p.m. tomorrow so we're looking forward to that. I'm making my brownie ice cream cake with the decadent chocolate icing. She also requested macaroni salad. She and Larry are making beer butt chicken one night for supper and on Saturday morning, they plan on attending the LUMBERJACK BREAKFAST FROM 7 - NOON AT THE LOGGING MUSEUM which is south of us about 2 miles (this was a plug for the museum by the way!).
Jody and Larry had hoped to go kayaking through Seney Wildlife Refuge while they are here but with the wind we are still expecting, I can't imagine they will try it.
They normally come up for Thanksgiving so there isn't a lot they can do, other than visit, that time of year. I know how much she wanted to do this but figured her health issues would be what would keep her from it. She has a "nerve" condition that causes her immense pain pretty much 24/7 and is on the pain patch for it. Sometimes this condition is so bad she does resort to her wheel chair but tries very hard not to rely on it. And the patch causes her all kinds of OTHER problems so when she does manage to have a good day or even a few good hours, she does like to try to do something. So we were hoping this would work out for her; the stars would be in alignment, she wouldn't be in pain, the bugs wouldn't be bad and the wind would die down.
Well, the sun is coming up from behind the trees and I better get busy with other things! Already the wind is picking up....and it isn't even 7 a.m. yet.
