Lots of things to talk about today, so much that I just decided to condense it into one post.
First of all, the Green Valley fire by the Park Rapids/Menahga area has grown to 7,100 acres. Structures have been destroyed and it’s not over yet. It’s not very often that you hope for rain on a weekend, but everyone is hoping Mother Nature lends a hand in putting out this fire.
The Forum has an update on it today with pictures and videos here.
Fishermen’s Wharf had posted a picture on Tuesday of the bay being free of ice and today, Johnson’s Portside said this on their FB Page:
BYE BYE ICE !!
Mille lacs is free of ice today, now we get the marker buoys out and the docks. Get up here and FISH !
Finally this story of a man catching a quail with his bare hands. You have to question the validity, much like the author of this article does, but the fact that he’s a pastor has to lend some credibility. But he’s also trying to sell a book, and viral videos like this do a great job of spreading the word. Watch and judge for yourself:
