As of this writing there are no residents of Lake County with confirmed COVID-19. It is realistic to assume that there are people who have it or have had it and recovered. Our local healthcare system has done some testing within the guidelines provided by the Minnesota Department of Health. Those tests are processed outside of Lake County, but ALL positive results are attributed to the county of residence, which is verified by direct contact with MDH.

Please follow the guidelines provided by the Governor’s office, MDH, and CDC. If you think it’s all some sort of plot, that’s ok – just view it as a plot to keep you safe, limit the spread, and flatten the curve so the surge in cases doesn’t overwhelm our capabilities.

Stay safe, stay healthy, and take care.

Summer Begins?

Memorial Day weekend is upon us. Please take a few minutes to remember those who have sacrificed for our country and our way of life.

And of course it is cold (41 degrees) and windy, damp, and drizzly like many Memorial Day weekends. It is the beginning of summer vacation season and the campground is filling with visitors to the beautiful North Shore. I hope the camping folks are well-prepared for our weather!

Another (sort of) new start

This site began as a free bulletin board site way back in 1999.  Over the years, there have been several iterations of the site, both in format and content.  The most successful was a pure bulletin board site that is still accessible from the Two Harbors Forum link.  Pre-Facebook, the site attracted 100’s of contributors who created 1,000’s of posts.  It still amazes me.  Somewhere along the way, I decided to use WordPress as the primary tool for   All fine and dandy, until there’s a glitch that I can’t fix.  So, this is another new start.  If WordPress functions correctly, it’s all good.  Keep your fingers crossed.
