Silence before the storm
On Lower Twin Lake, bordered by old growth, Walter Briggs leans back as far as he can and hangs onto his hat while the canoe passes beneath low-hanging cedars along the shoreline. It is absolutely quiet, except for the dip and pull of the paddles. An occasional raindrop can be heard.Millions more are threatening. Before that, however, we glide gently to a near stop on the glassy surface, perhaps 70 feet from a great blue heron.
