Sitting on the couch with only the light of a waning fire - and bam, a couple gazillion candlepower searchlight, lights up the room like a prision break at Sing Sing. That sure gets your attention~

Gale warnings to 50 mph posted for the eastern two thirds of Superior, prompted a new arrival at 9:31 last night in Bete Grise bay. Can't make out here name yet today, but she's one of the largest that I've seen here.

Mr. Bill,

I see 2 ships near the Keweenaw Peninsula: James R. Barker at 1004 ft and Canadian Enterprise at 730 ft. That's from Current Vessel Locations at

Mr. Bill, your powers of description are impressive - are you a writer?!?

I was so excited when the temp here finally dropped below 50 degrees, and immediately fired up the fireplace. Now we're back to 75 today, so I'm living vicariously through your post!

Mr. Bill,you wouldn't happen to have an old chicken coop or shed out back that I could rent for a while, would you? I'd give about anthing to be there to see what you can see in your everyday life! How neat to see ships out your window! I always enjoy your descriptions of seeing something and trying to read it's name. Thanks for you and your wife sharing with us.

Storms on the lakes today was an appropriate backdrop for the EDMUND FITZGERALD services today at MARINERS CHURCH in Detroit. As usual the church was packed with those paying their respects to the 29 men who lost their lives aboard the FITZ on Nov 10, 1975

On average, how much for a gallon of regular gas up there? Down here in Florida, it is about 2.07. These gas prices are ridiculous, didn't we free the people of Kuwait about 14 years ago? Thanks for the "thank you."

By Yooper Willie on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 03:13 pm:


Count your blessings, mid-grade is $2.19 here, but in Chicago two weeks ago it was $2.57.

The trend-line is going only one way ... If it wasn't for our remote-ness, and the fact that it's too new (first model year), I'd have tried an Escape hybrid last week instead of a standard V6 that I purchased.

By Candy, CA on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 05:46 pm:

It's down to $2.21 at our local station here in the Sacramento area for regular, but 30 cents more for premium...

By Fran,Ga on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 05:54 pm:

Hi everyone,missed Pasty cam and all of you.we were in Panama City Beach for 3wks and it was restful. The sky high Condos are over taking the beach tho. Such a shame. It is beautiful there but the U.P. is much more beautiful. My computer is down so It will be awhile before I get back on regularly. Fran

By Alice, Ventura, CA on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 07:09 pm:

$2.34 or so here for regular in Ventura County.

By Al, SoCal on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 07:11 pm:

Saw a "cut rate" here in Torrance,Ca. @ $2.28/gal. reg. unleaded. Paid $2.03 for same in Ashland,Or. a week ago....

By Lori... Commerce Twp on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 07:26 pm:

Gas was $1.92.9 (regular unleaded) here in Commerce Twp, Mi, yesterday... I paid $2.14.9 in Hancock and $1.99.9 in L'Anse on Monday of last week on my travels back from the U.P.

By Charlie in Eagle River on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 07:31 pm:

We got a fill up in Baraga yesterday for 1.90

By Char, WI on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 08:00 pm:

If you are in the U.P., check out the Northern Lights tonight - -
absolutely awesome!

By Down State Dave on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 08:55 pm:

Got to see the Huskie's game yesterday at the "Big House" in Ann Arbor. Was disappointing to see them lose, of course, but was really neat to see all of the people there rooting for the Huskies. Michigan Tech hats and shirts everywhere! My uneducated guess would be that the MTU people far out numbered GVSU people even though GVSU is MUCH closer to Ann Arbor. Had to be a lot of traffic north bound on I-75 today!

By Dave, Temecula, CA on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 09:23 pm:

Still $2.43 in San Diego ..

By Jennifer, WI on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 09:27 pm:

The Northern Lights were awesome in Green Bay!!

By Candy, CA on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 09:29 pm:

Hopefully, someone with a camera will capture some of those wonderful dancing Northern lights -- we don't get them here in California :(

By JustMe on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 09:55 pm:

I payed 1.69 in the Toledo, OH area today.

By Steve,WI on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 11:07 pm:

All I can say is WOW to the northern lights, had them all the way from Wausau back north sure made a quick ride of it.

By Laura on Sunday, November 7, 2004 - 11:32 pm:

We can see the Northern lights in Oxford, Mi. Get some one out there with a camera! We can't see to much color here, but they are putting on quite a show.
