Someone Turned Off the Heat!

     After a few days of sweltering heat on the Gunflint Trail someone turned off the heat. It got down to 40 degrees last night and I’m tempted to turn the heat back on as soon as I turn the air conditioner off!

     These temperature swings are common between Grand Marais and the end of the Gunflint Trail.  On Sunday friends from Grand Marais arrived wearing their jeans finding they had overdressed for the 80 degrees plus temperature.  When they left town it was only in the 60’s! Lake Superior is a big air conditioner when the winds are blowing in from the lake in the summertime.

     My flowers are grateful for a break from the heat and sun. It’s been a full time job to keep them from dying. I might be able to make them last longer than a week if the heat stays down!
