|FIRST FERRY ON MONDAY MORNING|
Monday, 9:00 AM. 34 degrees F at the ferry dock, 31 on the back porch. Wind variable and calm, the humidity 96%, the sky overcast. The barometer is steady at 29.81", predicting more of the same for the week ahead, with the possibility of snow on Wednesday. My Second Cousin Gary called me from Seattle yesterday. They are a little warmer there but otherwise the weather is almost the same.
Awake early this morning, I caught the light of the first ferry from LaPointe on Madeline Island, crunching its way through the ice cubes to Bayfield. If I hadn't known it was overcast I might have thought it the morning star.
