Hot Weather on the Gunflint

We have been experiencing some very warm temperatures, especially for the end of May.  I can’t remember a Memorial Weekend this hot.  Sunday and Monday’s high temperatures both reached into the 80’s and temperatures in the 70’s are predicted for the whole week.  The water has really warmed up and both Abby and Josh have been swimming in the river, something that normally doesn’t happen until after the first week of June.  I guess I need to get my suit on and join them one of these days… On Monday we experienced another thunderstorm with lots of lightening, wind and rain.  This storm was like the one on Sunday because it came out of nowhere and only lasted a short while.  There wasn’t any hail this time and the temperature dropped to a tolerable level.  We’ll see what June brings us for weather on the Gunflint Trail.
