The weather this summer seems to be all about extremes.  We’ve had record heat, rainfall and humidity.  Two days ago reality returned.  We literally went from running the air on Thursday to running the furnace the last two mornings.  Lows were in the 40s and highs in the 60s; yikes!  It was also incredibly windy the last two days.

Today highs are expected in the mid 70s and the winds have calmed down.  Perfect! 

The good news is the mosquitoes seem to have left town.  The flies,  however, did not get the memo.  They’re hanging in there.  I must have killed dozens in the camper this weekend.

We had two groups brave the cool temperatures and winds yesterday by renting canoes.  I’m thinking we may have a few more today.   Firewood sales, however, were very brisk!

The campground is only half full this weekend.  I’m really surprised since we were full Memorial Day and the 4th of July weekends.  Maybe people are winding down by this time of the year.  I’m sure the cool, windy weather didn’t help either.

P1000291 I got a kick out of watching people wrestle with tarps yesterday.  Some were trying some creative techniques to create wind protection.  Not all were successful :)  These people must have been really cold.  They wrapped both ends of their pop-up with tarps.

Today we’re expecting visitors.  Two couples are visiting for a cookout.  Kevin used to work with one of the guys, and we have all become friends.  Tomorrow, two ladies I used to work with several years ago are visiting.  I’m looking forward to the company.  We’re trying to get in visits with friends and family before we leave. 

An update on our camper repairs.  We have an appointment for Sept. 20th at the RV dealer in Wisconsin.  Jayco is working with the technician to make sure our leak and slide are fixed correctly.  I sure hope we can put all of this behind us!!!

Don’t wish upon a star – Reach for one!
