White Friday on Black Friday

Happy Thanksgiving!  It was 57° in the Keweenaw yesterday.  The smell of turkey was wafting out the open window above the kitchen sink.  Here's the view out the same window today.

It's a white Friday in the Keweenaw:  25° and snowing and blowing.  Yep, we're having a good old-fashioned winter storm!  Let it snow.  The house is nice and toasty, the refrigerator is fully stocked with Thanksgiving leftovers and Cocoa has nestled herself into the cedar chips in her doghouse.

All is well in the snowy Keweenaw!

Just one more thing tonight.  Here's the view of downtown Calumet on the local webcam this evening.

All is well (and peaceful) in the Keweenaw.

3 to 5 Inches

This was the view out the kitchen window about 1-1/2 hours ago:

The forecast says we may end up with 3-5 inches by tomorrow morning.  Wouldn't you know it?  We have to travel to Marquette for an appointment tomorrow morning.  Oh well, the Traverse is good on snowy roads.  We're supposed to have temps in the 40's for most of this week, so this snow won't last either. 

I must apologize again for not posting very often these last two months.  I've been having a spell of bad headaches, and I haven't felt like writing much.  No need to worry; migraines are just part of my life.  Firearm deer season opens on Thursday, so I'll try to do some writing while Steve is out in the woods waiting for Bambi's father to wander by.

Hmmm, looks like the bird feeder needs to be filled.

All is well in the Keweenaw.

P.S.  My mom's birthday is tomorrow.  Happy Birthday, Mom!
