Feeling More Like Summer

This morning was very cold and damp but by noon it started to warm up. We were able to get lots of yard work done in the afternoon and early evening. The temp was in the low 60's. A frost is predicted tonight and tomorrow night.

The American Spirit went down past here around 7:30 AM. There was a boat just before her but I was relaxing, watching the Today Show and missed it. But the American Spirit came back upbound around 12:30 PM. I haven't heard what was going on but I will post if I learn anything.

Also Down bound:
Pilot-a tug that overtook the American Spirit out in front here
John D. Leitch-8:30 AM
Robert S. Pierson -2:45 PM
Ojibway at 3:00 PM

Upbound:
Pineglen 1:15 PM
Adam E. Cornelius 3 PM
Algosoo 4:40 PM

Thanks so much for the great stories and pictures. I read your posts often. My Grandfather helped build on the locks in the early 1900's. So I enjoy reading all I can about the locks and the going ons surrounding them. I was born in the Soo and left years ago. I have been back to visit numerous times and we always take the Lock Tour...amazing.

Keep up the great stories and pics...I feel like I am there...

Alice, Thank you for the nice words. I'm very interested in hearing anything about your grandfather's work on the Locks. Did he ever talk about it? Did you go to school in the Soo? I thought have been in the same school.

I am going to be away for a couple of days because my mother-in-law is sick and we've gone down state hopefully just for a couple of days. But thank you for the encouragement to keep writing.
