|THE NOR'EASTER BLOWING HARD IN ASHLAND...|
|...DUCKS TRYING TO RIDE IT OUT...|
Tuesday, 10;30 AM. 31 degrees F at the ferry dock, 27 on the back porch. Wind still ENE, gusty. The sky is overcast and cloudy and it is still snowing lightly, after depositing about four inches of frozen slush on everything yesterday. The humidity is 94% and the barometer is beginning to fall, now at 30.03". Snow is predicted again for tomorrow, but at the moment the sun has struggled through the glop.
Yesterday's Nor'easter gales left flotsam on the beach in Ashland and inches of dangerous, slippery slush on the roads, making a drive back to Bayfield a little adventurous. A pair of mallards seemed to be riding it all out just fine until they were washed over by a wave, and struggled to fly off to a more sheltered location somewhere.
It wasn't even lovely weather for ducks!
