Amy Cloutier was out and about recently, snapping pictures along the way. She ended up in Houghton, where she captured this blue sky and clouds shot. Doesn't it make you sit back, relax and enjoy the view for a moment? With that bluer than blue sky and those cottony looking clouds, it doesn't get much better than this... Unless of course you stay out long enough for darkness to fall, then you can "take in" the beauty of the Portage Lift Bridge lit up at night. It's a good looking structure in the daylight, but oh boy, at night it takes on a different level of beauty. Thanks for letting us see things through your lens, Amy.

Today's third photo, let's us "see" through E. Neil Harri's lens, with a look at the PCI fire that recently took place in Hubbell. Our local volunteer firefighters did a great job containing the fire to the roof of the building and putting it out after just a few hours. I'm declaring today, thank a firefighter day, so if you know one of these brave individuals, thank them for their service to our communities. Kudos to them all!

"Thank You, Davey."

AND a "Thank You" to all the other firefighters, too.

Our VOLUNTEER firefighters in our surrounding communities are the absolute BEST in the world. Hands down, no questions.

We do have great weather, love the night pic of the bridge. Hey Greta! We have lost contact, how are you guys?

The cloud picture reminds me of the opening of The Simpson's show.

OOOOOOOooohhhhh, a bridge picture!

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Monday, May 10, 2010 - 02:51 pm:

Like the pictures, and it sounds like the fire was contained to only a small part of the building. Thank God 4 firefighters.

what's PCI ?

Mary says: That would be Peninsula Copper Industries, David. You can check it out here: PCI info

also ..spent the weekend up there, got a chance to drive through Houghton and saw the new brick street for the first time.
I was rather shocked at this. looks terrible and is bumpy. Makes the downtown look older than dirt, in my opinion.

Ernie, I sent an email to you. Hope you got it.
