Man I am really surprised how high the lakes are. I dumped  4 inches of rain  out of the rain gauge before I put it away for the winter. I haven't seen the cabin lake this high in 30 years.

But man are the trails soupy. :confused: :doofus:

 I didn't get down to the lake 'til Monday last week when the sun finally came back out. :sad: It was EZ to tell as the boat came off the lift that the lake was up 3-4" or more from where it was when we left. Water's so high & with our bank we're going to have to jack up the lake side of the lift again when we pull it just to get it out of the water. Hope it drops some yet before we get ice as ice out got a bit hairy last Spring.

We had a few flurries here during the day on Thursday but not enough to even tint the ground white. Now Friday night & early Saturday was a different story as the ground was white early on. It didn't stay long though as it turned to rain on & off later. I saw where the lady who is the WCCO Weather Watcher for Inger reported 2" on Saturday morning. She lives on the south shore of the main lake over by where the river comes in. Nowhere near the 4" you said you had up there though.

Sorry to hear about your buddy, glenn. :sad: Just glanced at his place yday on our way back from GR & thought somethin looked different. Messed around with the lift this AM & brought it in to just about the rip rap. It's still sittin in enough water that I could put the boat on it. :crazy: I put some rope on it when we had the last nice weather & the lake has came up another 2-3" since that time. I can only remember 1 time when it was higher. Dad had a  little 2 stall boathouse, galvanized pipe for posts along with a galvanized roof, down there & we had to lay some planks along the shore to get to it. Had to be late 70's-early 80's.

Well!! :shocked: They've only been in business 50+ years so I'm sure they know when it pays to be open. :tut: Good luck findin another 1 that's open then, bet 90% or more are closed at that time.  :doah:  Maybe  :scratch: you should buy that business, DR, with some of those big bucks your makin & pay somebody to run it so they can be open when you go through. :rolleyes: ;)  :laugh: :nerd: Just checked the hours on the 1 that was in Cohassett & moved to GR, 1000 Lakes, even they close at 6:00 every night, Young people, 30 ish  :scratch:, runnin that 1 too. Might have buy a good aerated insulated bucket & start bringing it with you.

After messin with the lift a bit yday we decided that with the water so high we weren't going to be able to put it where we usually do as only the front wheels were barely going to be out the water. Last season at ice out the water level had come up so much from all the snow & the strong NW wind pushed the ice against our shore, movin the lift sideways 2-3'. Not wanting a repeat of that we called the GR guy who runs a barge service that many others on the lake use at this time of year & in the Spring. Got the answerin machine when we called but he called back within 5-10 minutes & it turns out he has 10-15 other jobs out here coming up in the next week or so, depending on the weather. He's gonna move it 30-40' north where the bank is cut away a bit & put it up completely on shore for us for only $75. :happy1: It was a big relief for us so we had to check out HH. ;) :rolleyes: :laugh: Not that busy over there at 1st but by the time(5:30-6)we left it was full, a lot of food too. Heard a rumor while we were there that the place had been sold, but not even the help seemed to know much about it. :scratch:

Kinda what we thought too, LPS. Within 20-30 minutes of talkin to the guy we both agreed for that $ we may want to use him in the Spring & Fall every year.  :happybounce: :cool: We knew he did a lot of others on the lake, docks too, but figured he'd get $200-300 a pop.
