A real window rattling night with violent thunderstorms passing through around mid-night. A few had the thunder within a second of the flash, so it was close by. Forecast is for the next 36 hours to be unsettled with more storms passing by. The coming weekend looks good.

Don’t forget to put your name on your boat trailer. Once there are 60 or 70 of them in the field it is easy to get them mixed up. Not that the owner will not recognize it, but when the various dealers come in for mid-season service work, they can’t find the correct trailer.

There are 3 lodge rooms and one campsite still available for opening weekend (June 21-22-23) of bass season. Everything else is booked up that weekend. Both weeks of deer season are available. Deer hunts are limited in the number of hunters so as not to have too many hunting the available land.

Don Weller’s beautiful - ready to move in, with road access, cottage is still available. Asking price is $750k, but Don will entertain all reasonable offers. There are some photos of the cottage and accessory buildings in the Photos 2011 gallery on this web page. While $750 is a lot for this lake, browsing the Homes and Land magazine recently showed that similar cottages, not all that far from here, sell for as much as $1.5 million.
The 30 acre parcel that is listed along the right side of the road into the marina has just been reduced to $159k. That is finally getting into the ball bark. That is listed by Wayne White with Coldwell Banker.
