Raindrops keep falling on the deck…

     After a very dry summer September has brought us rain.  Not as much rain as many places south of us have been receiving but the 2nd most we’ve received in the past 10 Septembers.  It’s only half as much as the most rain we received in September of 2007 when 16.65 inches of rain fell.  But 7.15 inches this month and counting is pretty good compared to the 2 inches of rain average for the month.

     You would think the water level in the rapids would be back up to normal for this time of the year.  It’s still quite low and challenging to get through the rapids.  Maybe this last dumping of rain will make a bigger impact on the water levels.  We have lots of lakes and streams to fill back up.

     Meanwhile we’re enjoying some spectacular fall colors on the Gunflint Trail. Come see for yourself.
