After what seemed like an endless amount of rain, skies cleared enough at days end for another remarkable Clark Lake sunset. As usual, there are differences depending upon which part of the sky you’re taking in (see below). It’s interesting that a beautiful sunset, if not more dramatic, also preceded the arrival of the rain (see article and photos).
Days like yesterday–rainy, windy and cold–don’t have much to offer kids at the lake. Decades ago the solution was camping out in the living room or dining room table and playing board games like Monopoly and Parcheesi or card games like Old Maid. Yesterday, kids were more likely occupied with a video game or one of the many cable channels. But one thing about an all day rain seems consistent. Right about sunset it clears up, but by then it’s too late to head for the water.
