Merry Christmas!
What a Great Lake!
9:05 am Christmas morning, opening Christmas gifts when suddenly we noticed a ship on the horizon.  Beyond the dunes, past the cedars and birch trees, you can see the ice mounds continuing to grow from the constant pounding of waves.  Very rare to see traffic on the Lake this late in the season, especially on the holiday.  As the Pasty Cam was recording this panorama of the Keweenaw shoreline, the music in the background sang, "I saw three ships come sailing in on Christmas day, on Christmas day"

It's a black and white world in the Keweenaw this morning... mainly white.  With a break in the blowing snow, Pasty Cam spots the coated face of the rocks just above the former site of the historic Cliff Mine.

(back in the summer we explored some of the old shafts)

Superior is a churning cauldron with a ghostly steam rising to meet the lake effect snow.  How far will the ice extend this year?

(there are stories of moose walking between Isle Royal and the Keweenaw)

While the wind howls outside, the Pasty Cam finds a warm place... another kind of icy action in the arena at the Houghton County Fairgrounds.

Almost 10 a.m. and we're having one of those "horizontal" snowfalls, with windchills of minus 20°.  Along Cliff Drive north of Ahmeek.

(truck, don't fail me now!)

Sunday, December 20

Winding its way across the U.P. from south to north, US 41 is snow covered and slippery... and a beautiful Sunday afternoon drive.

(grooming of the snowmobile trails will get underway this week)
