Mud Lake in Winter

Mud Lake in Winter

Hot Times


Warm, well hot-humid, days at the lake.  We receive about a half inch of rain, but could use a few more inches.  Overnight we have had some cooling, but the day looks a warm repeat for the few few days.

I have heard some lakes are kitting 80.  Mud Lake just has to be that warm.  Fishing is likely down.

August Heat


It has been dry at the lake.  Some pretty dense fog this morning will coat the plants, but rain has missed us.  Chances exist this week, so we hope one or more rain showers find us here.

The lake has been quiet with little activity through the last few days.  The main change has been the arrival of the geese.  The annual honk fest is getting underway.

Swan Watch


Our pair of swans have appeared late afternoons on Friday, Saturday, and Monday.  On Monday they floated around the East/Northeast corner of the lake and were quite viewable from the roadway.

The loons were about but could only be heard, not seen.

The early evening, the last two days, has seen two large swans slowly floating around the lake.  Friday they were around the west end and slowly paddled out the channel around eight.  Saturday night they were around the east end until some light boat noise told them to fly away across the lake.

Last fall a lone swan gathered, before the flight south, with all the geese.  One does hope this is it and it found a mate.
