Today is Memorial Day, also known to some as "Decoration Day." Originally, this was a day when southerners after the Civil War took time to turn their attention to their cemeteries, as a sign of honor for the ones they had lost in the conflict between the North and the South. Many people think this was the precursor to Memorial Day, which we mark on Monday. Surrounding cities, such as Shakopee and St. Paul, will help us recognize and show respect for those who have so bravely served our country.
Who's ready for summer? Or late spring. Or whatever it is we'll be calling what hopefully is the end to this roller coaster of a weather trend. Either way, this weekend marks the unofficial beginning of summer. For many of us, that will mean wetting the first line of the season after the blustery fishing opener kept most anglers ashore.
