Located by the Fox River and Chain of Lakes in Northern Il. We boat, fish, love the outdoors, pets, and enjoy life.

Even though it is still a little cold, and the ice is not completely melted quite yet on some lakes, Spring storms drag me out of hibernation to blog-- Yet again ;)
While storms are popping in IL and we'll all be watching Spring severe across the country, I'd mainly like to point out how damned lucky we are up here by the Chain of Lakes that the melt off was extremely gradual, without major flooding! Wow! After the record amount of snow and cold (with potential for ice jamming) we wipe our brow and say PHEW! 'At coulda been BAAADDD. Let's hope we 'skate' through Spring and Summer severe just as lucky!
With 4 feet of ice still gracing the lakes up in the UP, Minnesota, ND etc, we have had a lot of migratory birds hanging out in our neck of the woods. I did a photo series a couple of weekends ago which featured some North American White Pelicans, and other birds finding refuge here on the chain. Hope you enjoy and go into the series of other pics with this one. You can find them all in the WUphoto section.
Thanks for everyone's well wishes and prayers for my family. I'll do an update on a calm day, when I feel more like talking about the events of this long, hard winter. Lots of twists and turns, but 'the yewts' are all doing great, and I'm so very proud of them all.
Stay safe all ships! Chicagoland...PAY ATTENTION, those November severe storms were just in our backyard !!!
P.S. Fermi Lab is this weekend. I may try to go again,lol. One of the keynote speakers is highlighting the November outbreak.
