Weather report is for 40% chance of afternoon thundershowers as a cold front is passing Saturday afternoon thru Sunday morning. Winds are expected to be 20 – 25 mph during the passing of the front. Please be safe, eat a lot of good food, and drink a lot of cold beverages of your personal choice. I’ll be sitting this one out. Fifth weekend in a row that a front of some type has passed thru! We gots the BAD JUJU!
Fish were caught. A good time was had. The wind picked up, ending the outing.
Any pictures, glad you had a good time. That front was a little cool too besides the wind. Come on SUMMER!
