The 35th running of Grandma's Marathon was once again a great success and runners stayed cool along the lake with temps in the 50's, a tail wind and cloudy conditions. In retrospect, the weather was quite nice compared with the fog, wind rain and cool temperatures Duluth has been subject to in the days following. We Duluthians have learned to cope with days like this (as there can be many throughout the year). Jim and I stocked up on videos, we hiked on the Superior Hiking Trail between rainstorms, cooked some good meals and rejoiced in the fact that waterfalls, rivers and Lake Superior will rise (no flooding here). We can also cope because we know the sunny warm days are ahead and those days are glorious when they come.
The sun will be shining this weekend on the 41st Annual Park Point Art Fair and CHUM'S 7th Annual Rhubarb Festival, both free events and held outdoors. Take in the Lake Superior Chamber Orchestra Concert at Sacred Heart Music Center on Wednesday, June 29. A fine group of local musicians always presents an interesting and finely played selection of music and their program can be viewed at www.lakesuperiorchamberorchestra.org. Many other musical offerings are listed on the Twinportsnightlife.com site as well.
See you in Duluth!
