    Looks like rain throughout the SE. Although there has and will continue to be flooding issues, there should also be some relief for y'all down south.
    Currently 76 in G'ville. :)

    Same here, the AC is getting a breather for what is about to come any day now. Luckily it was new last summer so it has some tread left on it and that big azz live oak helps with the GRU bill. Lord knows I need all the help in that department. ;):(

    It's been blissful in northern MN. Today is about our fourth day in a row of sunny, w high of about 70. Was a crispy 47 this am, but that's not bad (long sleeve weather) when you've been subjected to another polar winter.

    I have the windows open and the ceiling fans and I'm reaching for a sweatshirt. 2 weeks ago we were the dang Sahara Desert. Enjoying it while it lasts. The GRU bill should look nice for June. So far.

    Here in Irvine we have had mild temps and about 3 inches of rain in the past 3 or 4 days, my staghorns and other tropicals think they are back in their native homes, good for the aquifer and my daily perimeter walk has been far less taxing than a month ago when it was tough in the swelter

    We’re a few degrees warmer in Cloquet. A couple weeks ago it was 72 when I left to have lunch in Duluth. I wore shorts and a t shirt. When I got out of the car at OMC, it was 50 degrees and windy. That’s more extreme than usual, but that big lake is quite the air conditioner!

    Wow - didn't know you are right down the road. I think the early summer temps are when the biggest differences exist. I knew it's not uncommon to be 25 degrees cooler than the cities. Didn't know the difference exists as close as Cloquet. BTW - you've got one of the region's only good Mexican restaurants down there. Good place.

    Those hills really block the air from the lake I think.

    Pedro’s is pretty good when the chips are fresh. But I’ll go to Duluth to eat nine out of ten times.

    Cloquet has some benefits— decent whitewater paddling and atv trails for example— but the dining is not one of them.

    I'm guessing the walleye shore lunches are pretty good around there, though.

    I'm wondering if we have anyone here who lives in Two Harbors. Silver Bay, maybe?

    Nope - only a couple who live down near the cities. Can't remember their handles.

    I was shocked at the walleye when I moved here. It’s absolutely a first rate fish.
