Clear Lake, Color the Wind--canceled

Postby Mike » Mon, Feb 11 2013, 01:58 PM

Just in case anyone was planning to go to this weekends festival in (on) Clear Lake, the ice melted overnight and the fest has been canceled.

That is a serious bummer. Even though it looked quite chilly from past years, and is a pretty long drive from here, I was looking forward to going.

Hmm . . . maybe we should have a club fly, in say . . . . Champaign?

Larry sent me this photo today. Not so much ice.

Holy moly. :shock:

That picture just sent a chill up my spine -- it was already a little too wet for comfort a few years ago!

Holy Cow!

You just need a boat or may be a barge... It would have been fine....
Everything seems so much better when the sky is filled with beautiful colors.
