The weather has been horrible, but it was suddenly nice, so we just *had* to go to the cottage, despite the fact our boat wasn't ready yet.

Very few blackflies, not that hungry yet. Except for our 'Designated Bug Attractor" If you could grind him up, then all those horrible bug sucker traps would actually work.
We got back, after begging a lot, and handing out wine bottles. Yeah!
Our giant Arctic blob has been pushed east. But there is no Pacific air, just that up and down battle of Gulf and Arctic air.
