June, finally some warm days interspersed with heavy rains!
Those rains are not as welcome since the St. Lawrence River is at an all-time high. The high water results in letters to the editor, government officials are scrambling with calls for help and most of all - just plain hardship for islanders and businesses up and down the River.
This month we have 11 articles to help take your mind off your wet boots... Stay safe.
The June 2019 issue of TI Life is now online. www.thousandislandslife.com.
