That's right I said 'heap', referring to the dumping of snow we've received, turning the bare roads into snow-covered and slippery in a matter of hours. Heaps, and heaps of the white gold has fallen, assuring all those skeptics who had been worried, of a 'White Christmas'. Bill Haller, our unofficial Pasty Cam Bete Grise boat watcher/reporter, has captured a scenic shot, illustrating the loveliness that follows the snowing and blowing which fills our driveways. After the clean-up we've had to perform in the Keweenaw, I thought a reminder of the beauty was in order!

What a beautiful picture! Love the UP Scenery!


By Tim, Saint Clair Shores, MI on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:20 am:

The U.P. is a wonderful place to see the best winter has to offer.


By Sherry, Gulfport MS on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:32 am:

So peaceful and serene, doesn't even look that cold! 34 degrees here on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, but even colder sitting under this air conditioning vent!


By Chuck '65, New Jersey on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:33 am:

Just great to hear the peace and quiet in a picture.


By smf in troll land on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:36 am:

Beautiful picture!


By Kim near Lansing on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:52 am:

It's 32 this morning in Florida!!


By Mike B., Pittsburgh, Wishin I was back in the Yoop on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:54 am:

19 degrees when I left for work this morning. We finally got a little snow. I hate it when it gets cold and you still see green grass. It may sound strange, but 19 degrees doesn't seem as cold when there's snow on the ground.

Anyway, another beautiful picture from the U.P.


By Margaret, Amarillo TX on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 07:23 am:

Fabulous! What a great picture. All those tall trees loaded with decorations from the Master. Great pic and thanks for getting out in it to capture some peaceful reality.


By Frances Georgia on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 07:24 am:

Beautiful picture, thanks for sharing that beauty with us.
27 this AM in south Georgia and we have frost.
That is all the white stuff we get.
Merry Christmas


By Dave, Laurium on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 07:34 am:

Great pic to begin the day. Good Morning and Happy holidays to all. Thought I would share a special view from a very special spot I took on my little sojourn into Keweenaw yesterday . Had to work for it this time, as the hike up there for the pic sure filled my exercise quota for the day.....BUT it was well worth it. Enjoy!!

By Janet , Ohio on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 07:41 am:

Beautiful picture makes things look like Christmas is on the way. Thanks for sharing.


By RCW on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 07:55 am:

Wow, thats a great shot Dave. Neat wallpaper.


By Yellow Girl, MI on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:20 am:

Simply Gorgeous!! - Hi Jana Banana and Nut Brown Maid.


By Nancy- VA on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:21 am:

Aahhhh! Pretty.
16 here in Blacksburg Va. Pretty darn cold for December. I'll have to save that picture, very NICE.


By Chris, MI on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:22 am:

Can we get a blow up of the second picture for WOW please?


By Bob on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:23 am:

Friday on the way to Marquette we saw a sight similar to this one, and I wished I had my camera along. the snow in the trees like that makes some great shots.

looks like more for the weekend. high of 8 for sunday! Turn on the lake effect machine.


By Joan, Ohio on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:28 am:

My wallpaper picture on my desktop for the winter months! Had a wonderful fall picture of a lake with a fisherman that has been on for months. We got over 4 inches here in Ohio but it will probably melt soon. Saw on the news that Ironwood received 2 feet of the white stuff...but they can handle it! Better them than us...cold here though.


By Kathy from Whitmore Lake/Cheboygan on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:46 am:

Mike B., actually, for the plants 19 degrees is colder when they aren't covered with snow. Snow protects from cold and from drying out.

Also you can't cross-country ski on grass. ; )

Very Christmas-card like picture.


By Dave, Laurium on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:49 am:

By Yooper in MN on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:51 am:

Thanks for the dose of winter! There is NO snow here in the Twin Cities and it's starting to drive me crazy! I can now update my wallpaper with this snowy scene to remind me of what I'll get to see next week!


By Chris, MI on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:51 am:

Thank you Dave. With as little as pictures really capture, this shot is beautiful. Must have been near breathtaking to be there in person.


By ert, GA on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 08:56 am:

Beautiful picture. We're as cold -- 18 degrees here in northeast GA -- but no snow. (There was some snow in the GA mountains on Tues.) Everybody be careful UP there!


By Mr. Bill on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 09:14 am:

Bless the Kewenaw County Road Commission, without which, winter life in the Keweenaw would be near impossible.


By Stefani, IL on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 09:15 am:

That shot makes me positively nauseous...with homesickness!!! Dave, the shot of the church is lovely.


By Victor P., Houston Tx on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 09:18 am:

That is a great picture. It's my new desk top background picture. It replaces the Richard Reynolds (richardreynoldsphotography.com)of the Chisos Mountains in Big Bend. Big thanks.


By Roudy Mi on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 09:22 am:

That second one is awesome. Thanks Dave. Wonder if the guy in the car knows he's a celebrity today.You know his 15 minutes of fame?


By Troll in e h on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 10:21 am:

GREAT gallery Dave....I was looking for the beaver pond behind the Church Of The Assumption.The angle was wrong to see it.


By Fred, Three Lakes on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 10:56 am:

Great pic Bill, Thank you.


By John S., Laurium on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 11:52 am:

Beautiful photo!! It looks like that pic was taken just east of Mt. Bohemia....the more snow the better up in that area....can't wait to get out on the slopes!


By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 12:06 pm:

THAT IS SO BEAUTIFUL!!!! I would love to be up there right now, able to have to worry about driving! I think I could handle it! (As long as I had a Pasty with me!)


By Linda, IL on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 12:38 pm:

Beautiful! Please send some of that snow to Chicago!


By Marg, Hancock on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 12:55 pm:

Capt. Paul in Nevada, Just wanted to say Hppy Holidays to you and Dr. Nat. We have missed you and wish you both well.


By John S., Laurium on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 01:03 pm:

I think Dave's (from Laurium) photo should be the photo of the day tomorrow......spectacular.....calendar material!


By Janie, IA. on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 01:12 pm:

How pretty! The top photo could work for a Christmas card! Happy Holidays!


By Carol Greene, Montreal, QC on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 01:13 pm:

Blue, sunnyskies with lots of fresh snow, which is equally beautiful at night with the Christmas lights here in Montreal. But it is nice to see the beautiful picture from the vicinity of Bete Grise.


By bob on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 05:21 pm:

I can hear the quiet.


By elm on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 05:41 pm:

Such a peaceful serene picture Bill. Thanks for sharing. Just what we need this time of year.


By db-l. linden on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:11 pm:

Chistmas card material ,Dave--thanks for the pics.


By Gordy, IL on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 06:35 pm:

Nooooooooo Linda, we don't need snow in Chicago, of course I don't mind it. My ATV with a snow plow is all set, so bring it on.
Just hate those 4 hour rush hours and people with a lack of driving capabilities.


By Gary on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 07:38 pm:

Gary - Wis,
reminds me of driving to school in my 1957 Chevy pickup! Thanks for the memories!


By Capt. Paul in Nevada on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 07:40 pm:

Hey Marg :-)
Same to you and the kids. We wish we were back up there this time of the year, BUT, there may be a change in the near future as to our place of residence. Will keep you and the rest of the PastyCam family posted.............

By Nancy, East Lansing on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 09:04 pm:

Okay - that's it. I'm packing my bags and moving up there tomorrow morning. Oh what the heck - I'll leave right now! Think my boss will mind if I don't show up tomorrow? Two great photos today!


By Sherri, Toivola on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 09:20 pm:

Great pictures!!! Where are they taken? I see Mother Nature wanted to decorate for the season, but she can stop now. lol


By Paul, Webberville Troll on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 10:26 pm:

Hi Kim near Lansing. This picture must look like central Florida this A.M. with the sprinklers running on the orange groves.(To early for Oranges?)


By JanaBanana, Maryland on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 11:17 pm:

This is my new wallpaper as well. Still don't have any white stuff down here in Maryland yet, but coming home to MI next week, hopefully for a White Christmas. Hey Yellowgirl. See you soon!!


By John-Canton mi on Wednesday, December 15, 2004 - 11:18 pm:

A raeal gem Sir Dave! Thanks


By Doug from Virginia on Thursday, December 16, 2004 - 02:29 am:

How I miss Michigan and the U.P.

Awesome photo


By Dave F Elkhart IN on Friday, December 17, 2004 - 12:47 am:

These photos are some of the best I've seen of the UP. The pictures show some of the familiar places taken from a different point of view. These different points of view show how much planning and thought went into the composition of these pictures. Hope we can see more of these excellent pictures.


By Harley on Sunday, December 26, 2004 - 10:48 pm:

Great Job Mr. Dave Love that snow!!!!


By Harley on Sunday, December 26, 2004 - 10:55 pm:

Great Job Mr. Dave How I love that snow Just like Paradise Michigan.
