We had 15" of snow this weekend. Big. Fat. Fluffy. Flakes!
Life did not stop.
School was in session today.
The shelves at the local grocery store had not been stripped clean of milk and bread.
The Weather Channel did not send Jim Cantore to do a live broadcast climbing up our snowbanks.
We had 63" from mid to late November 2014. We didn't see Jim Cantore then either.
126.5" fell during the month of December 2013. Nope, no Jim Cantore in the Keweenaw!
Just sayin'. . . .
Oh, I just remembered. Brian Williams (NBC News) did make it up here in December 2013. I heard he personally shoveled out everyone in the Keweenaw. What a hero.
The snow we had this weekend brought our seasonal total up to 191". That's about 3-1/2 feet below last year on this same date.
The students at Michigan Technological University in Houghton considered this a perfect week for their annual Winter Carnival. Here's the winner of the snow sculpture competition.
Look for the darkly-clad individual who happened to be walking nearby when the photo was taken. He's at the far left in the photo. That'll give you some idea as to the size of this sculpture. (The sculptures were supposed to follow a vacation theme this year. This winning sculpture portrayed a vacation in London.)
All is well and beautiful in the Keweenaw.
