Charlie at Pasty Central (Chopper) on Sunday, November 16, 2014 - 11:42 pm:

This weekend there was an odd all-time record broken all across the U.P.: the most snow on the ground for opening day of deer season. In one case, I heard the former record in the Negaunee area was 9 inches, but yesterday it stood at 22 inches! Will make it harder for the deer to get around, and harder to track. Wonder if this year we make break the 400 inch mark here in the Keweenaw?

The County Seat of Keweenaw had a snow-filled autumn back in 1942, as you can see the way it was at the end of November.

Sorry for the delay in bringing this week's Shoebox Memory. It has been a weekend filled with catch-up to get all the pasty order preparation in place for the upcoming holiday shipping season. As you can see, the December order calendar is now online. Speaking of 'calendar', we finally have the 2015 Pasty Cam Color Calendar on the way, and it should be ready to include with December pasty orders. Can't believe how fast this year has flown.

Have a good week :o)

If only weather predictability were so clear.
According to the MTU records, 1942-43 total was
only 208 inches. The all time record in 1978-79
of 356 inches for MTU records showed a November
total of 55 inches. Only 1985 had a higher
November at 62 inches but the total for 1985-86
ended at 287 inches. Halfway through November
and the pace is quite high though.

BTW, for the 8 years from 2006 to 2013 that
Keweenaw County has published their records,
the Keweenaw totals have been substantially
higher than MTU by the following 8 margins
(2006-2013) 145%, 151%, 131%, 112%, 98%, 148%,
139% & 163%

Some snowstorm. I like that vintage Standard Oil gas pump.

Thanks for keeping the record alive, Charlie!
