Brent and I closed the last camp and got home last Thursday a hour after the crappy weather hit Red Lake.  It has been snowing, raining, and blowing ever since.  Yesterday I got a small window to take the Otter to the barn for the winter and took it.  Time to give the old girl a rest.  I am glad I took it then because the weather this morning was again, OUT!  After such a beautiful summer, we knew we were going to get some of this.  Winter is on its way……

It has always seemed weird the first morning after the Otter goes away for the winter.  I have slept next to that old bird every night all summer.  I was smiling this morning when I woke up to this weather and the dock was empty!
