Monday September 28

Sep 28, 2020

Great weekend at the lake, with a still-elevated level of homeowners, visitors and boats on and around the lake (and at local establishments).  Today offers a slight chance of showers after 2:00 pm. Mostly sunny, with a high near 72 degrees and a south wind 3 to 8 mph. Winds could gust as high as 23 mph. Chance of precipitation is 20% during the day and rising to 50% in the evening, with a low around 54.

Good outcome: An Amber alert was issued Sunday for a missing 9-month-old girl who was found unharmed in Pennsylvania, where police arrested a man who has been charged with kidnapping. Police arrested the man, from Meyersdale, and charged him with kidnapping his girlfriend’s infant. State troopers responded to a call of reported assault around 10:00 am Sunday to a Grantsville restaurant parking lot, in Garrett County.

Jean and I took my grandson Andy out to Double Oak Farms in Swanton to get some pumpkins and corn stalks. They have a nice selection, good prices and a non-commercial, relaxed atmosphere on their working farm.  Here’s a photo of some of our goodies set up in our yard.

Fall Has Arrived

Even as we are in early fall, there is still lots of activity on the lake, and I am not just talking about the human kind.  Here’s a photo I took looking out onto Stilwater Cove Saturday afternoon.  I liked the combination of the geese in a line and the low clouds.

Late Summer at Stilwater Cove

Good news: The Loar Auxiliary Gift Shop at Garrett Regional Medical Center:is now open to the public Monday-Thursday 9:00 am to 4:00 pm and Friday 2:00 pm to 9:00 pm. Note that they are limiting in-store customers to four at a time and everyone is asked to follow the yellow tape on the floor for social distancing. Also, masks must be worn at all times. Be sure to follow them on Facebook for new items, sales and change of hours.

Well, now we have definitive proof.  Yes, thanks to this very nice photo submitted by Darla Annonio, I am now sure that our local bears definitely grow on trees!  At least, that is what it looks like based on all the bear silhouettes in the tree.  Thanks Darla for sharing the photo!
