Well, here we go again. With the arrival of the summer months, and the end of the spring rains comes the annual "Algabloom" to western Lake Erie. This year is expected to be severe due to June rains causing excessive amounts of nutrients from fertilizer, manure and sewage to flow into our lakes and streams. This should be interesting to watch, and even discuss at the dinner table with my brother as we love to jetski and boat in the area near Put-In-Bay. Stay tuned.
