We had over 5 inches of rain come down.  It was quite a storm.  Missing picture is guests huddled in our basement who came running when hail hit.  Pictures of Troy and I bailing out the boats twice between storms.  Mack cowering in the basement from the lightening.  Cleaning 3 cabins with no electricity, generator pulled out to run a treble light and the vacuum cleaner.



Once the storm rolled through it was time to pass out the candles



By the end of the day we had 4 generators running fridges, lights and the water in the resort.  It just took us a while to get all the cords and splitters out.  We did not loose electric much this summer and had not pulled everything out in awhile



The hum of the generator kept everyone happy.



The lat power cord of the day passed out to Horst to run his TV for the Thursday night Packer Game.  We could have auctioned off this cord to the highest bidder.  Horst’s family has been with us 17 years for Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends.  His parents used to own a resort on Lake McCormack on County Y.  Horst grew up bailing boats and selling worms

I also sadly have to tell everyone Woody Woodruff passed away today from a heart attack.  Woody owned Twisted Root Emporium and Loon Land Traders in Minocqua.  Everyone locals and tourists were sure to know him.  He always had a smile on his face and was known for walking barefoot around his store.  The last time I saw him was at a chamber advertising meeting.  He was wearing a Scottish kilt to the meeting because he had just done an interview to promote a show at the Campinelle Center.  Woody helped and was the driving force to get the Center up and running.  He is going to be badly missed in Minocqua.  He was one of those special people in the community that always volunteered and got things done. RIP Woody
