Masonic Lodege in Genoa City, WI.Incongruence exemplified. I’m only guessing this is a Masonic Lodge because of the icon above the door, but every other Lodge I remember seeing was an imposing edifice displaying beautiful architecture in a scenic urban setting.

After several days of heavy rain, Twisters Ice Cream shop in Montague is bounded by standing water to the south across the bicycle trail.

Butternut Creek rises with the rain, but quickly drains into the White River, which empties into White Lake. The water level in the Lake is 3 to 4 feet higher than it was two years ago. The beach on Lake Michigan, about 7 miles to the west, is almost non-existent.
