Sunrise (WST) 5.22, sunset, 8s46 1 understand why Duluthians, after being cold ever since last October, are mocking when I say I like this gray weather; when (after too hot in Mew York and Winona) I like rising to another day of fog, rain and chill, with steamSrs on lake fretfully hooting. M would mack with them. Tue 23. 57-43. Mpls 84-60. This time of year, Duluth runs 20 degrees colder than Mpls-St.P. Hise to thin sunshine on lake - almost first sunshine since arr last wedn. Sun gone by tn tens fog. Out again at 11130 and fine day. Spring in Duluth at least 3 weeks behind Mpls, which means 5 or 6 weeks behind Hx — this yr, at least. I get 3 springs this year. Thus Housman's Shropshire who fretted because he would have only 60 springs could have trebled them — by coming to Duluth — if he had been willing to pay that much Evenings steamers, lighted aft, coming to white lighthouse and green lights at opening to Aerial Bridge Canal. Lighthouse and line of lights on Wisconsin shore — maybe 4 miles away. Steamer is beauty against moving water. W©dn 24. 64-46. Mpls 82-64. AM, sun thru light fog on lake.
