While Deb and Ron Simons were here visiting Deb's Mom, they took a ride to check out winter UP North further and of course that always includes a stop at the Eagle River Park to see if the deer herd there is still around. As you can see by their photos, they weren't disappointed. Even though it was snowing and blowing quite a bit that day, they were moving about and looking for something to eat.

Not only did they snap photos to share with us, though, they also took a video so we get to pretend for a few seconds that we're right there at the park with them and the deer. Pretty neat to see the deer moving about like that and the music isn't bad either. ;->

Funny thing is we saw none at Eagle River when Nat and I were up earlier in the month. We saw loads of tracks, but no deer.

Looks like a healthy deer herd to me. The predator type critters ain't got em all. So far this winter hasn't been real bad for them. Judging by the video it wasn't a lot of fun outdoors that day. Thanks for putting up with the blowing snow and for sharing.

First time I've been online in a couple of days
and I see a notice from pasty pop up on my
facebook page.

Yes, Duane, the weather outside was frightful.
The wind was really howling and the lake was
wild. It was hard staying out there, but worth
it. We were bound and determined to get out
one day, even if the weather didn't cooperate.
There were about 3 deer when we got to the deer
yard, but within seconds, there were quite a
few of them. Wish we would have had food, but
we didn't.

Hope you enjoy the deer as much as we did.
Thanks for sharing these, Mary.

Thanks Deb and Mr Deb for the deer pics and for braving the cold & wind to get them!

What a treat...thanks for sharing!

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Saturday, February 20, 2016 - 09:31 pm:

O, deer, oh, deer, oh, deer.

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Saturday, February 20, 2016 - 09:33 pm:

What beautiful creatures!!
Nice shots & vid Deb.

Deb...they probably thought you were the caterer.

Thanks for the video, Deb and Ron. It did capture the experience
for us without having to stand out in the cold.

I was thinking the same thing Alex! "Soup's on!!!"

Nice video of Deb and Ron getting their "deer
groove on" with Bob Seger and "Night Moves". A
couple of deer appeared to be fans of the Silver
Bullet Band....interesting.

I see John Dee's Journal for today included this photo of (click →) a roof collapsed in a building in Houghton. Apparently fairly close to the Houghton end of the bridge. I can't identify the building.

Does anyone here have any further information on this?

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, February 21, 2016 - 08:50 pm:

It was the old Kurkish building down by
the bridge, FRNash. Too much snow on the
roof. My mom thought there was one in
Laurium that it happened to also.

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Sunday, February 21, 2016 - 10:40 pm:

Thanks, Deb.
That ol' Kirkish building sure was an oldie, and probably the most perilous of them all. It was practically ready for retirement in the 1960's! I'm amazed that it lasted this long.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Monday, February 22, 2016 - 08:12 am:

For sure. I doubt anybody was too
