Winter has definitely arrived here in the Keweenaw. The past few days we've been bombarded with "lake effect" snow, to the tune of several feet in some places. That means that the Snow Thermometer is back up and running with daily updates on the snow depth, along with a convenient display of temps around the U.P. and the current gas prices here in the Keweenaw. E. Neil Harri snapped the photo of the Snow Thermometer yesterday for us and we've since gotten at least another foot or more of the white stuff, so yes, winter has come to stay this time.

The remaining three photos were taken by Jeff Dennis, a few days earlier, when the flakes were just beginning to fall. Jeff and his family hopped on their side-by-side for a ride, despite the cold and snow in the air. They ended up out at the Big Traverse boat launch, where Jeff fired up the grill they pull along on the trailer behind them. What a great memory for their kids, having a snowy picnic, all bundled UP against the arrival of winter. The Dennis family is a good example of the hardy Yoopers that live here in the Copper Country. No matter the weather, get out there and enjoy the beauty around you.

Just in time for Christmas gift giving. The photos are all beautiful scenes in vivid color and would make the perfect gift for anyone on your Christmas list, especially those you'd like to give a little "piece of the U.P." to. Order here: 2017 Pasty Cam Calendar.

Another great gift idea and a way to save money on postage, is to order delicious UP Pasties, since any gift items you order with the pasties, will be included with no additional postage. You can place your pasty orders here: UP Pasties.

Proceeds from the sales of pasties and calendars, help to support care for the elderly here in the UP.

There's a hardy bunch..."Come and get it before it gets cold!"
Impressive snow total considering the winter we have seen so far.

Over the river and through the woods,
Towing behind the grill and the goods
We need to have a picnic in the snow.
I probably would have enjoyed that picnic..........Sixty years ago!!

Always love seeing the snow thermometer. It gives
me a chuckle every time, with the record amount of

The pasty cam is out. I'm sure I don't have a
chance of winning one this year as I only made it
up there twice last year. That's not like me, but
with Ron's surgery and me being needed at work, I
just didn't have the opportunity. Hopefully next
year is different.

Great expedition photos, Jeff! Nice rig! And thanks for the Snow Thermometer photo, Neil. I always love looking at it and seeing that 78-79 still holds the record, a winter when I lived out in the woods, getting back and forth to the house on skis a half mile from the main road.
