    The MN deleagation should lead an effort to save the Angle Inlet Post office, at the very least. It’s a little piece of the USA, surrounded by Canada. They need and deserve a US Post Office.

    We’re heading to Lakewood on Monday morning. It’s kind of a zoo, usually. I’m curious to see the construction, though.

    @EricaM: We try to get to Lakewood a bit after the start of the morning observances ~10:30 a.m. Most years, we’re able to get in and out that way without too difficulty, and avoid the crowd coming-and-going. (Plus, the back gate is open for a quick exit onto King’s Highway.) Three years ago, when we had another cool-ish spring, the apple and crabapple trees were in full bloom and it was absolutely beautiful.

    My years-long ability to avoid dining or drinking outdoors at restaurants and bars will be easy to carry over one more year, because it appear that it will never get warm or stop raining this summer.
