Here at Eddy's I would say we got a solid 5 inches of snow yesterday. Lake is beautiful for snowmobilers right now.

I can tell you it was a lot! I was on the lake with my two wheel drive Dodge Dakota and would still be out there if it wasn't for the friendly ATV guy from Milaca. It was snowing at a rate of over two inches an hour and piled up fast. To fast for me to make it off the lake easily. A complete white out. I had to keep the door open just to see if I was moving. After backing up and going forward a million or more times I finally got off. In between all of this the truck doors locked up with me outside of the truck. Thanks to the guy from Milaca we (he) got the drivers side window open by using the aerial from the truck and me prying the door. Then to top it off I took HWY 27 back home. IT wasn't plowed and I hit some snow in the middle of the road and ended up fishtailing into the ditch. Major damage to the truck because I hit an approach. No damage to the old body though. It's plowed roads only now if you drive two wheel. I think four wheel drive will let you navigate but with all the snow look out for water coming up. Oh, fishing was slow with a late bite Weds and nothing at all on Thursday before the snow.

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.

      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.

      Going up to visit family at Mille lacs 4th of July weekend. Given the current fishing restrictions and the fact that I don’t have a boat, does anyone know any good shore/kayak fishing lakes in the Mille lacs area?

      Spent yesterday afternoon wading the upper croix. Water actually seemed a little low. There was lots of floating grass, so my traditional approach of using a fire tiger jointed rapala was unusable. Tried a whopper plopper for a bit, which avoided floating grass better, but I just didn’t have confidence in using it. So since it seemed like the crayfish outnumbered the rocks, I decided to use a weightless Texas rigged plastic craw. Caught 3 smallies, and a pike.

      Here's the actual water level as of Saturday, 6-25. It has dropped some but still is 4 feet above the rule curve. This is updated daily; it's just too early in the day for Sunday's data to be posted. You can check it yourself here: http://www.lwcb.ca/waterflowdata.html

      @chaffmj, never mind.  I decided to take a cruise on up there today.  Had a couple popple tops in the driveway but nothing I couldn’t clear.  Nice to see the area again.

      Ludlows and Muskego both hit hard.  The Dayton place had a lot of big trees down, not sure of structural damage.  Some say a tornado skipped thru that area.  Looking at the destruction, I could believe it.  I feel bad for those impacted by this storm.   Below are a few snap shots of common sights around the area a day or two after the storm.

      Mike, was there a lot of damage in the Ely area?
