Wednesday February 12

Gee, more rain yesterday and fog as well.  The weather for today will be… MORE RAIN! Yes, rain is likely before 5:00 pm, then rain and some snow likely, then rain again in the evening, including wind, with gusts as high as 34 miles per hour.  Temps will be in the mid 40’s to the low 30’s. No real accumulations expected.

Had a very nice time at dinner with fellow Lions last evening. We hosted a dinner for our blind skiers after they spent a day on the mountain. Great kids and families and a wonderful time had by all.  Ed King even led us all in a funny song on sausage making (who knew):

Dedicated reader and regular Deep Creek Lake visitor, Clark Frazee, contacted us to share the recent passing of his uncle, Mason Wainwright Callis, Jr.  Mr. Callis was a great fellow, loved the lake area and knew and positively impacted a number of folks in the community.  I wanted to mention the passing of Mr. Callis here and thank Clark for sharing.  Condolences to family and friends.

It’s even raining trout! DNR just yesterday placed over 2,400 rainbow trout in the Casselman river, with more planned stockings around the state and in Garrett County. You can check the scehdule and even a map to see where the next batch will “land.”
