Here in the Lake Superior snow belt, we've had a pretty good snow year so far receiving something over 100". These photos were taken over the weekend.

It is warm and sunny enough to ride a motorcycle on the south end of Lake Michigan. Our snow is melted and temps in the 50's persist. WTF?

Damn. You have twice as us. We're northwest of lake superior. This was yesterday. About a foot and a half. Seems most of the storms this year have swung below superior and across Michigan to you. Lake effect snow.

Snow kicked in over the past few days but not sure of the volume, maybe 2ft. Nonetheless, we could use it.

Whats been happening over Ironwood way?

I had to trudge through the deep snow on the deck yesterday to shovel snow off the roof around the satellite dish. I really need to get an extension post for it. Anyways, after the storm yesterday, we are sitting at about 3 feet of snow.

Our house roof and a few photos taken further up the Kewee. Not a great snow year with all the warm weather we've had.

Winter of 1992....went to Michigan Tech for the Snow Festival. Drove 8+ hrs in a Mustang GT from Chicago....almost running out of gas with a foot+ of snow on the ground in the UP. I remember eating pickled eggs off a bar top at 2:00am.....and being told we were going to the “gay” bar in the morning for breakfast....
