WET FUSES?  A series of broken, intermittent rain events will take hold over the region starting tomorrow and run toward the weekend.  While odds are likely for rain every day, don’t expect a total wash out of any events, but pay attention to conditions as some storms may be severe.

DUCK STORM.  Wildlife Artist Scot Storm took top honors in the FWS Duck Stamp competition, painting a pairing of a wood duck decoy and the real thing in this year’s winning artwork, which is on sale now.  Storm has multiple honors in the wildlife painting arena, including a recent PF Print of the year.

PLAY IT SAFE.  Ahead of the July 4th holiday, the NDG&F is stressing the importance of safe and sober boating in this week’s web short covering the Operation Dry Water event July 5-7.  Be safe, save the celebration for shore and boat courteously.
