Melting

Sorry I didn't get to this on Saturday, but I got busy with other things.

We drove down to Houghton on Friday - the day after the 19" snowstorm. The sun was shining, so the snow was really melting. Steve was pumping gas, so I grabbed the camera and took a few shots of the parking lot - not the most scenic area of the Keweenaw, of course!

I panned around to my right for a few shots - slightly more scenic.

See that big building up on the hill? That's "The Bluffs" - a senior assisted-living community. The view they have of the hills & valleys surrounding Houghton & Hancock is gorgeous at all times of year. They have duplexes and this large community/apartment complex. I zoomed in for another shot. We decided it wouldn't be a bad place to spend our last few years (if we're not able to live on our own one day).

As long as we were in town and it was getting to be late afternoon, we decided to pick up some fish tacos at Joey's for dinner - yummy! I took the next two photos of the bridge between Houghton and Hancock from the back parking lot of Joey's.

OK, back to Calumet. We dropped off some things we picked up for Mom and went around her block to get back to our house. Here's the snow at the end of Seventh Street.

You might not think that pile of snow on the right side is very big, but here's how it looked out the passenger window of our Traverse when we were next to it.

Now, around the corner and onto Sixth Street. Things were melting well.

And, onto our block of Seventh Street. Notice the white truck in the next photo for perspective.

The village snow removal equipment is kept just down the block from us, but our section of Seventh Street always seems to have the most snow on it.

Back home. Enough snow has melted for us to begin to see things through our living room window again! 

The snow remaining on the driveway after Steve's snow removal work the day before had now melted, too.

Just a bit more on the roof, but the sun took care of that yesterday. Off to do a little running now! I'll bring the camera.

All is well in the Keweenaw.
