Heat Wave

     Yesterday was a gorgeous day to be outside.  The sun was shining and the temperature was warm.  You know you’re from the end of the Gunflint Trail when 22 degrees feels warm.  It’s suppose to be warm this weekend too.  The temperatures may even get up into the 30’s.  I may not even have to wear long johns and snow pants for the outdoor hockey tournament this weekend.  This type of talk about weather reminds me of a joke I received the other day.  I fixed it up a bit so it would be a little closer to how we really thinkon the Gunflint Trail.
