This summer up north in Minnesota they have had a lot more rain than usual. It’s lead to a lot more mosquitoes than usual. Mosquitoes are the state bird here. We have been doing a lot of work this summer. We moved apartments and we are rehabbing this place.
My wife likes to wake up and have a cup of coffee on the dock. But, we haven’t been able to do that for a few years since we haven’t had an operational dock.
It seems like every late afternoon, we get a storm. It could be that the ground in the forest is so saturated that it’s creating its own weather system. Yesterday I finally got the dock in and the boat running and was looking forward to wetting a line. Thanks to my daughter’s friend Molly for helping. But, it started raining.
Last night, the rain started around 3am and hasn’t stopped. It could be God telling us to take a break. I guess if the trees didn’t need the rain, it wouldn’t rain.
This weekend, it’s supposed to be super nice. In the meantime, we tried out the fireplace.
