Monday, 8:15 AM. 20 degrees F, wind W, calm. The sky is overcast but looks like it will clear, the sun beginning to shine through the haze. Snow has melted and re-frozen on the roads so it is difficult to decide whether to wear Yak Traks and wear them out or not wear them and chance falling.
Yesterday afternoon was beautiful and we saw some wildlife for a change; a big turkey gobbler on Hyw. J just outside of town (no chance for a photo before he flew off into the woods) and a big bald eagle sitting high in a tree on the corner of 9th St. and Washington Ave.
The country roads are snow covered, the one shown is Lohman Road off of Hwy. K. The Ice Road
is open but I'm not driving to the Island on it; it is "Travel At Your Own Risk."
