A wee blog about the weather--
Wednesday, January 12, 2011
To-day , in our area, we managed to not get the big snow storm which is crossing the country- We are north of the Great Lakes, and believe it or not, in the last few years, we haven't had the snowfall amount that we used to get. This sounds good , but, in the summers now, due to lack of snowfall in the winter and thus, the lack of moisture in the ground, , the level of the lakes around here is getting lower and lower. This has affected the fishing in the area. We have about 4000 lakes, within 100 miles of our town- We used to be a huge tourist area--fishing in the summers---- and snowmobiling in the winters. And now, even our trails are not completely snow packed, as they used to be.
And I look at the television and see all the flooding in other areas of the world. It is strange isn't it ?
