9:30 a.m.

The weather forecasters were wrong.  Rain held off until evening both Saturday and Sunday.  And Sunday was a particularly nice day -- warm with ample intervals of sun.  There were some storms in the area last night.  Although I didn't see anything, Oakland got some significant hail.  (photo courtesy of Megan Redinger)

Someone didn't get the memo that April showers are supposed to be over...

Bill's Marine Service kicks off the 42nd Annual All-Family Boat Show today.  Stop by all month for great deals and see what's new in boating.  Food and drinks will even be served on the weekends.

Deep Creek Donuts (near the Creamery) held a soft opening over the weekend.  It was my professional duty, of course, to try it out for you all.   They were delicious and a reminder why I don't eat donuts.... I have a tendency to overdo.  :-)

Winners in the Black Bear and Migratory Game Bird Stamp contest have been announced.
