Quite a burst of color in this photo by Jeff Massie. Kind of makes me wonder if these fellows are really out there fishing, or if that's just a pretense to be out on the lake viewing the U.P. leaves changing right before their eyes. I'd think that if you spent the day out there on vigil, you could maybe catch the change from subtle green to the coppery orange or perhaps that brilliant yellow. Ok, so maybe it doesn't happen that quickly, but it sometimes seems like all that foliage changes overnight and what better excuse to be out there just enjoying the view. Bring in a fish or two, that would just make the day complete!

Good Morning from Anoka Technical College, in MN.

a discusion early today---Last nite on radio news
-Florida firm announces new technology; computer chip vacaination for medical reasons.--what about electronic money! --ID----electronic purchasing ? Does this bring to mind anything else? It does to me. Buyer beware.

By Tom, Green Bay on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:20 am:

Was in the CC the last few days. Looked for where the Pasty.com location might be, but----in the Still Waters complex?
Can anyone use the wireless network in the Keewanaw? How does one do it? I have the wireless on my laptop but couldn't access the network. My computer detected the wireless was there but neither of the two "addresses" could be accessed. Advice wouild be appreciated.

By SarahK, MI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:24 am:

very very beautiful, but nothing like being there. The colors are beautiful, but there's so much more, the fresh feeling of the cool air, the stillness of the water, the loons in the distance. Nothing like it.

By Frances S. Georgia on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:27 am:

now that makes me want to take the day off and go fishing.

By sat, Houston on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:28 am:

Good Morning from Houston. No color here but it is going to be a great weekend, nice mild temps. I sure do miss the seasons.

Hi Midge, Love your daughter. Just checking to see if you were on today.

By maijaMI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:32 am:

Lovely picture. Leaving today to trek up. Lousy weather predicted, but we won't care. Being there will help.

Many, many thanks again to all who sent good wishes.

By Down State Dave on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:33 am:

Jeff Massie - GREAT PICTURE! Reminds me of a bumper sticker I once saw --- "Work is for people who don't know how to fish."

Everyone have a great day!

By cminetti Macomb MI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:00 am:

The colors are looking good up there. Downstate is quite colorfull now also. Taking the family to Frankenmuth for the weekend to enjoy the scenery and family chicken dinner.

By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:04 am:

The colors in that photo are simply amazing! We are still mostly green in Georgia. Man, it's beautiful up there!

By J.C. Madison, Wi on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:11 am:

I grew up in Marquette, or more precisely on Lakewood Lane where my parents had a house on the lake. I was wondering what lake this picture was taken on? If it is near Marquette??

Tom, Green Bay:
Can anyone use the wireless network in the Keewanaw?
I dunno about the "Keewanaw", but anyone can use these
hotspots in the Keweenaw. J
You may find a clue in the note at the bottom of that page about Open a browser where it says:
"Pasty.NET dial-in and wireless members may use their regular ID, or obtain one from the management in cases where a restaurant or motel maintain the access point.}
If all else fails:
"For more information about Pasty.NET HotSpots or local or national dial-in membership, phone [the] support line, 337-0569" (or if out of the area use the toll-free line for support 1-800-327-0966).

By Dave by the Cuyahoga on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:23 am:

Good morning all from cloudy and cool Ohio.
We are just three days back from our annual October vacation in the U.P., this time spent on the shores of Whitefish Bay in Paradise. Every year the two of of bring back many wonderful memories of such a beautiful place, and maybe a souvenir or two. This year, however, we left something very dear to the two of us, for nine days ago today, on October 05, the very best puppy in the whole world departed this earth to go wherever good dogs go. He was 14 yrs., 3 mos., a Sheltie, Seltzer is his name. Truly he was as good and loyal and beautiful as a dog could be, a treasured gift from God, and this little friend is so missed. He is buried on the shores of Whitefish Bay facing the sunrise of every new day, sleeping under awesome starry skies, with the northern lights glowing over him in shimmering wonder. Huck Finn, Lake Superior Magazine's office dog and greeter, also a Sheltie and the same age as Seltzer when he passed, guards one end of the lake, being buried in Duluth, and my little friend guards the east end of the Shining Big Sea Waters.
Goodbye Seltzer Weltzer, my little friend and hiking companion. Rest well little puppy. Daddy, Mommy, and Jiggie all miss you so.

By Lori , yooper in troll land on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:38 am:

Dave, Seltzer is in a wonderful place.
I know we are not supposed to bury our treasures where we do but they deserve the best. May you keep your precious memories near and may your pain be eased with time. I know I do not begrudge anyone a special place on the shores of home. Peace.

By Kathy from Whitmore Lake/Cheboygan on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:52 am:

Thanks for the gorgeous fall pictures this week. We'd plannedto get up north this weekend but now it looks like we won't. Arrgh. So if I miss seeing the colors in person, at least I see them at your site.

By Chevysac, Bev Hills MI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:53 am:

Dave- I feel your pain. Just the day before our 15 year old beagle passed. She was a Yooper from Ishpeming, and we buried her along side her older sister in a family pet plot in the Marquette area on the 9th of October. As a Marquette native, I could think of no better place to bury our treasure than along side the pets of my older brother, and my dad. May you always remember and cherish the love that you got back from the one you loved so much.

By Candy, CA on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:04 am:

Unfortunately, a lot of the flame orange we're seeing here in Northern California are really flames -- two wild fires going now, whipped up by very dry (16%) air and lots of wind. While the haze is keeping the temps in the 80s, the air quality is bad. Miss the crisp Keweenaw air and leaves all over -- I even miss the raking! Thanks to all of you for sharing what we won't have here with those of us who left home...

By Liz, Idaho on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:22 am:

I did tune in for your interview this morning with Paul M @ KID TV in Idaho Falls. Nice to see you as yourself! I will check out the Halloween contest on Yahoo as you mentioned. Opps maybe I'm not supposed to say that due to advertising stuff.
Another beautiful Fall picture...gosh soooo many this week.

By Kevin K. Lodi, CA. on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:23 am:

Candy, CA,
We now have 3 wild fires burning in Nor Cal as of this morning. Miss the color and season changes back home.

By Dave - Colorado on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:25 am:

Well, I had to break down and turn on the furnace this morning... It was 33 F outside and about 45 F in our bedroom. Ski season opens tomorrow morning at Loveland Ski area up on the Continental Divide where they got another 18 inches of snow this week. I wish it was me in that photo... Looks beautiful!

DJB..>> When I fall and they pass a wand over my implant and access medical Info on me in Maryland I will be glad that the information was passed on to the trauma center etc. this is not the mark of the beast here....

By ert, GA on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:44 am:

Dave -- There's just something about Shelties! We had a Sheltie mix who adopted us when she was 4 years old. She was the most loyal, lovable, sweet dog, and we had her 10 years and still grieve for her. I could not have raised my children alone w/o her help! Treasure your memories and your Seltzer will live forever.

By kathyr, IN on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:49 am:

I was a nurse in ER for several years and know how improtant accessable medical records are to be able to give appropriate care. I think this implantable chip sounds wonderful

By Yooper Joe - Yooper by birth, in Brighton for love on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 11:08 am:

Fan of Yooper Joe and Gal in Kazoo: (from 10/13)

I will fwd a photo or two to Mary Drew after our honeymoon to Kauai. We will be back on the 9th of November. Then the weekend of the 12th I am taking my new bride out to camp to get ready for monday morning. She wants to go to Green Bay while I go hunting so its a fair trade off.

By the way where is that lake in todays photo?
I can't place it. Anyone know how the colors are between Marquette and Munising? particularly Deerton and Autrain, Rock river truck trail area?

By Dr. Nat in Nevada on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 11:14 am:

Good morning from Vegas!
Autumn is making an appearance here, the high temperatures have finally dropped into 80s, though by the weekend we're supposed to only be in the 70s. All the trees on campus are still green. I reckon it doesn't help that half of them are palm trees :)
The desert does have its subtle seasonal changes, though nothing as brilliant and spectacular as the woodlands of the north. I am very fortunate that I was able to spend last weekend in the Keweenaw enjoying the beautiful colors.
Have a great day eveyone!

By shelly/Yankee in Texas on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 11:33 am:

Morning from Houston. Cooling down nicely! 64 this morning.

By Chris in Vicksburg on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 12:27 pm:

To J.C. in Madison and Yooper Joe:

I'm pretty sure the lake in the picture is Deer Lake, just north of Ishpeming. The photographers Guest Gallery also has shots of Teal Lake in Negaunee and Goose Lake in Negaunee Township.

By Sandy, UP on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 12:49 pm:

Dave, Seltzer is waiting for you at the Rainbow Bridge where you will be re-united at your passing. Until then may your memories help to make the loss a little easier.

By Candy, CA on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 12:53 pm:

This is an "ooh and aah" in package!

It is really 37 degrees in the Keweenaw today?? Brrrr

By DB on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 01:03 pm:

To research computer chips in the hand -go to John Leary website. your hair may stand on end.his predictions as a mystic are interesting
even to the skeptics. his track record is good, having predicted 911, smart cards, war in Afgahanistan, Iraq, severe weather, fires,earthquakes & volcanoe. hmmm.

By Jean, West Texas on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 01:06 pm:

Breathtaking photo!!!! I forgot how vibrant the colors up there were. We woke up to 43 degrees here in Abilene, Texas. A welcome chill to say the least.

By Mel, Kansas on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 02:06 pm:

Question: In the aerial pics (linked by Candy, CA above), what are all the semi trailers in the parking lot by the football field? Seems like an odd collection, unless the circus is in town (but that's not usually until spring).


By Steve, Il. on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 02:17 pm:

Dr. Nat - Go to Zion Nat'l Park around the end of the month for a "color fix." It is about a 3 1/2 hour drive from Vegas. Try Flanigan's just outside the park for a nice dinner.

By cj Milford/Hancock on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 02:41 pm:

any body herd from joanne in WHT LK?

By Dr. Nat in Nevada on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 02:55 pm:

Good idea! I spent a good part of my childhood in Southern Utah. Zion was always one of my favorite places to go riding, have a picnic, or just hike around. Awesome geology, too. I haven't been back in several years now.

By Erin, Novi MI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 02:58 pm:


Last year the semis were there for the construction of the new buildings on campus. I'm assuming that's what they are still there for. Unfortunately, I had to graduate in May and enter the working world. The pictures are gorgeous and I would love to be up there right now.

By Marg,Houghton, MI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 03:24 pm:

Dr. Nat, I was just wondering if you are who I think you might be and if so I hope your trip home was a good one.

By Yooper in Westland on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 03:47 pm:


I would guess those are construction trailers (like Erin from Novi said) for the ongoing work.

By Ahmeek Cliff Dweller on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 03:52 pm:

Nice photo today, however, are you sure that guy standing up in the boat is actually fishing?....

By Dr. Nat in Nevada on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 03:53 pm:

Yes, I am who you think I am. The trip home was good, but I miss all my friends in the Keweenaw. I can't wait to come back for another visit.

Dave...why is it whenever I read about the passing of someone's dog...I get teary eyed! Sorry to hear your story...I face those days sometime in the future as my "mutty" is going on 12. She has been the best dog ever for all in the family. Good wishes to you...and cherish those memories!

By Paul , Webberville Troll on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 04:31 pm:

Boy! Yesterday at 8:36 A.M. a 6# 13 ounce, 19-1/4" long, Great Grand Daughter (#5), Elizabeth Kim and about 45 minutes ago the UPS truck delivered 12 pasties direct from Stillwaters along with 2 bottles of Toivo and Eino's Pasty Sauce. As an extra they were wrapped in a copy of the August 7/8 Daily Mining Gazette. Temperature to be 78 degrees that day and a story of a local couple climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro. Am I living right or what! Guess what supper will be.

By Paul & Cora, Webberville Trolls on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 04:55 pm:

Wow! Yesterday morning at 8:36 A.M. a 6# 13 ounce, 19-1/4" long, Elizabeth Kim, Great Grand Daughter (#5) joined our family. Now about a hour ago, the UPS truck dropped off 12 pasties direct from Still Waters along with 2 bottles of Toivo and Eino's Pasty Sauce. It was wrapped in the August 7/8 weekend edition of The Daily Mining Gazette. Temperature was to be 78 degrees that day. A local pair's story about climbing Mt. Kilimanjaro shared the front page news. Guess what we're having for supper!

By Paul , Webberville Troll on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 04:57 pm:

Ooops! The first post didn't show so I thought I had screwed up and I had!

By Candy, CA on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 05:00 pm:

Yeah, but you got to add Cora's name, so that's a good thing!

By The Dam Guy, Parasite Creek on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 05:17 pm:

By danbury on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 05:19 pm:

Congratulations, Paul.
By the way, I'd like to put in a suggestion, if I may: why not put the month's new arrivals on the first of next month?
Ok, first day would be the right equivalent, but kinda hard to predict ...

Colors are great this year, got to see them to truly appreciate them.

By Capt'n's dtr #3 in Calif. on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 06:41 pm:

Had a good and fast trip home. About 20 minutes early. It was GREAT to be in the UP at Lac La Belle Lodge cabins for a few days. The colors were absolutely breath-taking... Now that I think of it, so was the bride on her wedding day Sat. Lots of fun, and good to meet the face and person of Mary Drew!! The photos of the wedding on pasty central are great.
Ahmeek Cliffdweller-- you can keep the CD if you want, I can get another. There is a story behind the CD that I didn't tell ya!...

Explosive Friday storm intensification promises wind, cold air

Published October 14, 2004

The deepest, most rapidly intensifying storm so far of Fall, 2004 is predicted to take shape Friday and Friday night over the eastern Great Lakes. It's a development likely to result in powerful winds across a huge swath of North America up to 2,500 miles across--from Nova Scotia to Missouri and from northernmost Hudson Bay south to the Carolinas--by daybreak Saturday. Between daybreak Friday and sun-up Saturday, the vast low pressure system's central barometric reading may deepen 25 mb (0.75" of mercury) from 29.45" down to 28.70" just north of Lake Huron--a value equivalent to the lowest barometric pressure ever observed in Chicago. Storms which deepen that quickly in the mid-latitudes are often referred to as bombs by meteorologists. As the intensification takes place, the system's strengthening circulation is likely to tug autumn's chilliest air to date into the nation's mid-section. In Chicago--or at least parts of the area--that could signal the season's first snowflakes toward Saturday morning. A storm of that depth would approximate the intensity of the infamous Edmund Fitzgerald storm of November, 1975Nthough its track is a bit east of that deadly system. Jet stream winds, measured at 200 m.p.h. as they roared onshore across western Canada late Wednesday, are to play a significant role in the storm's development.

By Bthecute1, San Jose on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:23 pm:

There was a brown cloud hovering over the city today as I came off the mountain. Air quality is really bad. Don't know if it is from all the fires or from the exhaust of cars. Really hot today. On some of the trees there is a faint coloring of the leaves. I love to see the gingko trees, or the aspen trees in late fall that turn a brilliant yellow like the UP Maples. Hope that blanket of fog comes over the Santa Cruz Mountains tonight to cool us off. Gas today was 2.65.9 for premium today.

By pj,mi on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 08:28 pm:

Re: The Storm: Part of the forecast is for waves of 20 feet along the shore of The Keweenaw and east along Alger and Luce Counties.

for anyone looking for the name of this lake it looks like ruth lake in three lakes to me. i fish that bay myself. and my old man has a place on the lake.

By sandstone princess on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 09:51 pm:

DMahoney:thanks for the info on the bug me not site. What a hoot! I will remember that.
The article is pretty much what C from CA said in his/her message. Sounds really scary. I don't remember the day the Fitz sunk, I just remember all the stuff AFTERwards. We all lived through that storm, I suppose we will all live through this one. Where is John Dee when you need him, I ask.
Do share the story, #3 he,he,he

By Roz, GR MI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:13 pm:

Ok, so I'm thinking... how come we hear about this storm from a Tribune article and not from someone watching a ?NOAA site... I guess those report more current conditions and not predictions? I wish I had saved the web page that shows the activity of Great Lakes freighters. I sure hope all of them are getting out of potential harms way. I sent all of these links to my son up at Tech... told him to head over to the Lake tomorrow for a show :)

By RGG - Cedar Rapids on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 10:30 pm:

Sorry for the link folks.
I forgot a subsciption was necessary.

So, I sent them an email alerting them to the Tribune article asking why they don't know what's coming... lol...I told them to send some of their weather reporters up for a Gitegumee SP? storm. Sheesh... this is the 21st century. I'm taking my kids out to Grand Haven tomorrow to see what we can see.

By cheryl mi on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 11:08 pm:

It was on the weather segment of WLUC-TV tonight that there is a system coming in late Friday night & Saturday. Waves on Lake Superior are supposed to be 20' high. I remember Nov 10,1975 very well, my father was on the Edmund Fitzgerald when it battled 30' waves & sank. I pray that there are NO freighters on the lakes when this storm hits. There has been enough warning for them to keep off the lake or to take refuge somewhere. When you go to look at the BIG waves, I hope you think of the men on those freighters & pray for their safety. And at the same time think of my Dad & his crewmembers, along with all others who have lost their lives on the lakes.

By Roz, GR MI on Thursday, October 14, 2004 - 11:24 pm:

I'm sorry. I didn't mean to bring a "gawker" mentality into the upcoming events. I am ever in awe of the Great Lakes and her fury.

Wow, Great shot of the Hurons! The most excellent thing is, I've fished all those lakes in the photos. Lake Indy in the foreground, and Mountain Lake, the 3 Pine Lakes and Howe Lake as well as Ives and Conroy (never fished Conroy)...
You can barely see Lake Ann in the rear. The view from the top of Huron Mtn. is, well, way skippy cool.

Dave in Cuyahoga, I can truly appreciate your loss of Seltzer because I had to have my cat SuSu put to sleep on Monday because of health problems. It is incredible how our pets become such a part of our lives and how their absence creates such a deep void in our daily activities. Seltzer will always be in your thoughts as will SuSu. My condolences and best wishes always. A²

By Daisyhalo Michigan on Friday, October 15, 2004 - 02:46 am:

Its the restless expectation of fall that makes me be awake and searching for something so early in the morning. I can feel the anticipation in the air as the morning mist starts to creep in on little cat feet from lake to meadows. Our great Michigan Pumpkins lounge on the lawns, waiting for 'showtime' and the world is silent awaiting for the sunrise to tell us if we will enjoy a day of fair or wet weather. A damp yellow carpet is starting to form under the maples and I start a pot of tea. That's my Michigan.

Thanks Skypics for the shot of the Huron Mountains. Being I've vacationed up there for many years, I could find all my favorite spots. Easily could find our best fishing spots on Lake Independence. It was great to see all the lakes inside the HMC at one time. I've been to Ives lake a few times, and my friends parents live out on Conway. Her great grandfather had his camp before the HMC came through. Big Bay is a serene place. I just hope the right decision is made regarding its future. One day as my kids marry off and bless me with grandkids, I hope we can hike, swim in waterfalls and pick blueberries till sundown. We've made many memories there, with many more to come.
Have a safe weekend.

Great pictures. My Mom has a cabin on Twin Lakes and I try and make it up there every year. Thank you for the great shots
