Getting colder

With my digital camera broken, I'm getting hooked on publishing these lake temp graphics for a little variety. It has been colder, although we have not seen much snow this year. Richard figures he has run the snowblower only four times this winter. (In a normal winter he might run it four times a week and think he's getting off easy.)

There has not been much ice fishing action. The inland lakes are still scary, but this weekend should take care of that. We are expecting highs on Sunday of only 5 above, our coldest weather in over ten years. I am happily thinking of all those nasty squash bugs I battled last summer, quietly freezing to death in their underground hideouts.

The NOAA site shows us that the big lake is finally getting cold. Their new feature is a graphic of current Great Lakes ice cover.
