Weather: 53 and rain today, snow tomorrow
Trail Conditions: Wet, Mud, Slush, all things not good
Little bit of rain coming down this morning, that should help the melting situation a little bit. 1-3 inches of snow coming our way tomorrow. You can say what you want about our weather but it is better than the twisters and tornados down south.
We have an Ice-Out contest up here every year. Everyone guesses what day the ice totally leaves Lake Gogebic. Some places even put a tire or a whole car out on the ice and call time when the car or tire go through the ice. I’m lazy, I just call the day and not the time. Probably because there are just not that many people left to guess. No last minute guessing, you had to have your guess in by April 16th. Average is around April 23, Latest was May 18th in 1996, earliest was April 22nd in 2012 according to the list I have dating back to 1941. I think it is safe to say it will be the second or possibly the third week in May, just in time for walleye Opener.
Today’s joke is for my Iowa friends…………
A guy walked into a bar in Alabama and ordered a white wine. Everybody sitting around the bar looked up, expecting to see some pitiful yankee queer.
The bartender looked up and said, “You ain’t from around here, are ya? Where ya from, boy?”
The guy said, “I’m from Iowa.”
The bartender asked, “What the heck you do in Iowa?”
The guy responded, “I’m a taxidermist.”
The bartender asked, “Now just what the heck is a taxidermist?”
The guy said nervously, “I mount animals.”
The bartender grinned and shouted out to the whole bar, “It’s okay boys, he’s one of us! “
