Well another 90 something degrees out side and the weather man said it feels like its OVER 100 degrees. So I just thought I would check out YOUR weather and I am so jealous of you guys and your 68 degree's not fair. I really need to ask my Dad what he was thinking when he moved us down here.

It is 65 degrees right now here in Carlton. It's a nice day!! I don't mind it being a cool summer. I've put my air on only 2 times so far. grin I do feel for you DeeDee. I don't do well in the heat AT ALL.

Currently here in Osakis (12:12pm) it is 76 degrees and feels like 76 degrees. Haven't had to use the air yet this year. Open the windows at night when it drops to the upper 50s to low 60s, close the windows and coverings for the day and it stays cool all day. It got a little warmer a couple days ago when the humidity climbed up a bit but ceiling fans do wonders.

You got air? For the like 3 days it gets that hot? J/K Gets too hot and we just head down to the rec room downs stairs where it rarely sees 70 degrees.

I don't have air, but then I haven't needed it yet this year. Use a fan to suck in all the cool air at night and enjoy all day.

we've got central air but have only used it once so far this year. The nights have been beautiful and the days not too bad. I can handle the heat, its the humidity that I can't take, and thats been under control so far this year - knock on wood shocked

It sounds so funny that ya'll dont have air. Heck 90% of FL population would be wiped out with out it but we didnt have air when I lived up there. But here I guess we turn our heat on for about a 2-3 weeks total.

I guess you could say were even in a way but I would rather have snow and dress for it, where as here you can only take off so much before you get arrested. (then your still hot and sun burned.)

Well if you are stating that you are dressed/undressed like this to beat the heat you may need to have it tattooed, well depending on how hot it is. grin

I'll get you a hat from Barb, DeeDee! You deserve one too. smile

garyc - Here we had so much in common. Music, trucks, fishin, camping... But I guess it ends here. I have a tatoo. Its the names of my kids, the symbol in the middle means child. Unfortunatly he messed up on the flowers and a freckle is now where there was not one before.

Dang it anyways. 4 out of 5 isn't all that bad. From the looks of it, it does look good and if they are your kids in there, then fine. It is the ones who put there girlfriends or boy friends names on them and then it doesn't work out. Now what do you do. From the looks of it my guess it is on your shoulder, left side upper.

good guess! I agree no boy/girl friends name unless you can see in the future and know it forever then ok. And no tramp stamps either. Dont really care for them either.

ok I just looked at it again. Not that good of a guess. My sunburned/tan line gave it away

    • Glad to hear you're back up and running again.          
    • I got my boat back today and it runs great now but the mechanic said I had too many idling hours on it and it had a lot of carbon build up. I have trolled a lot with this motor . It has ran great but I did have  this recent issue with it where I had to bring it in and it runs good now. Mechanic recommended run it more often at higher rpm's.  For those that troll with their main engine,  how often do you run in a higher rpm's? I  use carbon guard  and thought that that would prevent the carbon buildup.  If I trolled for three or four hours at a higher RPM would that be too much ?          
    • Saw some reports from Algoma that looks like fishing has picked up some out there and some bigger fish being caught. I'm not ready for snow yet but I hope we actually get some this year. 
    • Well I got it done. I got some bolts washers and rubber grommets. I drilled holes in the counter top. then brought the bolt up through it put a 1/2in rubber spacer then a washer and bolted right into the bolt holes where the leg levels went. It looks nice and will be nice not having to put the fridge up and down every time a guy moves the ice castle and should hold fine driving down the road.         Nice exactly what I need to finish the project, so the fridge door doesn't fly open when driving down the road.

    •   And it has some sort of virus.
    • The boat is getting lots of use,,,, Heading to Algoma july 29th and back to Isle Royale later in august 
    • You're bolting a mini fridge to a countertop but worried that a tie down strap will make it look trashy? OK then.
    • The strong rainfall of the last few weeks was compounded this week with more rain accompanied by high winds, thunder and lightning, as well as several tornado watches across the state. Downed trees and branches and flooding was reported at numerous state properties throughout south western and south central Wisconsin. State park crews were actively clearing roads and trails, and we're expected to have additional updates before the weekend. Anyone planning on visiting a property in these areas is urged to contact the property directly for the latest conditions.Water levels across the state are still elevated and this week's rains means sand bars will likely be in short supply again on the lower Wisconsin River. With the high fast moving water many kayakers and tubers are taking advantage of the situation. A group of kayakers on the Peshtigo River said with the fast water they shaved an hour off the time it normally would take them for a river trip.Wild weather has put a damper on fishing pressure across the state and there are isolated reports of partially submerged fishing piers. Anglers have reported some success for catfish on the St. Croix River and anglers have been having success fishing the Flambeau River for musky, walleye, northern pike and bass. Largemouth bass fishing has picked up with high waters in Dane County rivers and there were reports of an uptick in walleye and perch are coming in from Lake Winnebago. .
