This is a view out of my garage door. It's still coming down. Hope the picture downloads.

That wasn't nice of you to post that. I'm sitting here in a tee shirt and shorts and it chilled me to see that. .

Moved south 5 years ago and never looked back. Still have family back there and stay in touch as well. We keep telling them the doors open if and when they had enough of it! Born and raised around the Lansing area and drove a tow truck for 25 years, I've seen and done it all in the snow! NO MORE!

Boy, I can see we're not missing anything back home. WOW, what a winter for you guys so far. The family back home is sick of it and it's still early in the season. Although it's going to get a bit chilly here in Central Florida the next couple of days, it's nothing like you have up there. Take care and hope all survive. Be Safe!

Off topic slightly. I used to work by the intersections of Warren and Wayne. Or maybe Newburgh would be a closer intersection.

My mother-in-law sent my husband and I this photo, it was taken last night and I believe they were set to get even more over night. So glad to be in Pampa instead of back home in Ypsilanti.

At noon today it was 21 below zero here in central Wisconsin. The wind chill was 50 below. Suppose to be near 30 on Saturday. If you don't like the weather just wait a few days. Jim

That area has quite the current, so it needs to be pretty cold for quite a while for the ice to freeze well enough for that trip to be possible...

A shot of a very frozen Big Mac (from west side of island), and some morons on sleds about half way between the island and St. Ignace, taking a time out for a pic of an ore carrier breaking ice coming through the shipping channel...
Ah, the ice bridge....

Been across many times and the great thing about it is snowmobiles are the only motorized vehicles allowed on the island. Getting to see all those beautiful mansions on the drive around the island is awesome.

We would stop by that little bar for lunch. Building contractors with their sleds and tool trailers everywhere performing winter work all around, as they don't usually do this in the warm season.

By the big cannon:


The Grand Hotel...beautiful place!

Here in the Port Huron area we've had mor snow than anytime in about last 20 yrs. Just got another 4-5 inches this past weekend and wouldn't you know it, the battery in my tractor decides now is a good time to puke. And the weatherman says more snow coming later this week. I've got 5' piles alongside the driveway and am running out of room to put the white stuff. Had a bit of a melt but all it did was end up freezing the piles bullet hard.
