We woke up to cool temps of only 2 degrees, and heavy rain. The rain on the roof probably sounded far worse than it actually was, that new steel roof has a more profound weather announcement than it's shingled predecessor. The outdoor furnace has not been fed for two days - end of season we thought - well, the end of the furnace left us with 19 degrees inside so we built a fire to warm the house. The winds picked up through the day and brought whitecaps toward the marina from the north - we always dread winds from the north.
For those who are anxious for us to open their cottage plumbing, we still extend caution, the night temps remain a risk. We hope over the next week or two it will be safer.
We made significant progress with boat launches over the past few days but the forecast is not promising for the earlier part of the coming week so it may interfere. Maybe the weatherman is wrong.
