This past weekend we went to the Wisconsin Dells, an area that was recently devastated by flooding. Our first stop was to take a look at a spot where we went water tubing and water skiing last summer. Such a shame—now it is just a big empty hole. Stumps were scattered across the basin where they had originally cleared land to create the lake. We walked to the bottom of what had been Lake Delton and saw one house half-hanging off of the shore. I feel so sorry for all the people who are out of a job this summer because of the flooding. No one in town knew what the plans were to restore the lake. We will return, however.

We were in town with our 12 year old daughter’s softball team, 10-12 little girls who had the time of their lives. They swam in the wave pools, slide down the water and tube slides, rode the Hurricane (quite the thrill!), ate out, went to Deer Park, rode go-carts, and even managed to squeeze in a game of softball or two. The only bad part of the whole weekend was that I fell and twisted my ankle! My ankle swelled to the size of a softball, and I had to find crutches and was forced to miss all of the water fun. But, despite the injury, a great time was had by everyone. My ankle is much better—I am just moving slower than usual. This injury happened just in time for my website grand opening! Such is my luck. Until next time, Jane.
