Sunset yesterday while out for a walk in the country.

No frost last night, although the NWS had a frost advisory out.

While it is cool and a bit cloudy this morning, the week will be warm and sunny as will next weekend. I mentioned in yesterday’s newsletter about the great fishing in Pickerel and Kimbal Lakes, along with a photo of my son Matt holding a nice sized pike he caught yesterday.  As an update, Matt went fishing again after I sent out the newsletter and caught several more pike and bass. We had a great dinner of fried boneless pike.
