The heart of town didn’t break out of the fog at all yesterday which I’m sure was a bit of a disappointment after the previous couple days. It’s hard to predict how persistent the fog will be on any given day. For Friday, we have started with fog, drizzle or mist.

The weekend may be the same, with fog close to the water but sunny skies if you gain any elevation. So my suggestion is if you are getting a little tired of the grey or it sticks around too long. Go out Beaver Creek to Stamp Falls or to Loon or Cameron lake over the Hump and you’ll find yourself in much brighter skies.

Hopefully though, the fog relents and we get some sun for all.

Our first rain in 3 weeks will come next Wednesday, but at least the wind will blow and give us some fresh air as opposed to what has been hanging in the Valley for the last few weeks.

Have a great weekend!
