As usual, Labor Day was a quiet day in Timber Lake. On Main Street, Melvin Gunderson and Nick Kraft (TOP) inspected Nick’s new purchase, a 1951 Chevy that had belonged to T.J.

At Timber Lake, the official rainfall from Thursday to Saturday was 4.16 inches, pushing the year-to-date precipitation to 21.57 inches, about 7 inches above normal.
