Don't know what happened to that trailer but it's seen it's last day on the highway, a faux bear and a bunch of wood ticks skewered on a pin.

After getting around 3 inches of rain yesterday there are still a few spots with water over the road, rain gauge shopping and a pretty nice day in the Northland.

A perfect day in the Northland. Lots of butterflies fluttering around the wildflowers.

Videos from around the 'hood

Sometimes it's just easier to post a video instead of trying to explain what's going on around here.
The turtles were in the mood for love, the little hummingbirds buzzed the feeders all day Sunday and there's still a lot of logging going on around here.  Slowly but surely the areas that were hard hit by last summer's storms are getting logged.

I was very surprised to see the little geese today. We haven't seen them or their parents for 5 or 6 days. Don't know where they've been hanging out but I was very relieved to see these two today.

It was like two different days so I made two different colleges today. Cold, rainy and foggy in Duluth....

But quite nice down by our cabin. We went "uptown" shopping today and had lunch at our favorite Vietnamese restaurant. Jims is a traditional soup called Pho and I had a rice noodle dish called Bun Cha Gio.  It has a lettuce and cucumbers on the bottom, then a layer of rice noodles, a sliced egg roll, thin pieces of roast pork and other garnishments on the top. As usual I brought half of it home with me.
