The rain started last night, but it is merely cool and gloomy today, so far. I may go up to the Soo Locks to see if any ships are going in or out. It is a race against time until the Locks close next month. This may be an overnight trip t... Read more

Wednesday, October 02, 2019      7 comments

Last night it rained so hard I could not see our neighbors house. Or the yard. Or the road. Or my mailbox. If not for the streetlight, I would have been looking at a sheet of water in front of my window. Without B-dry system, our entire hom... Read more
