When I started my archive search for today, these photos jumped out at me as being rather unusual for winter here UP North. Beginning in 2003 with a shot Dan Urbanski snapped of his exploring buddy, Sara, as she downed the snow on the tree above her, to take a snow shower. At the time, Dan wasnít sure why she did it and Iím kind of wondering now, too, since I donít think she was any cleaner afterwards.

Our next oddity is actually a very cool letter carrier from 2009. Thatís Dave Mongeau, photographed by his wife Mary Mongeau on a bitterly cold day on his mail route in Calumet. Iím pretty sure he didnít deliver his entire route dressed like that in -3į weather, but even just posing for the picture would have been quite chilling!

Moving forward to 2015, Kathy Archambeau caught her hubby mowing the snow and took a photo to prove it. While most folks here in the Keweenaw either snowblow, plow or shovel the accumulated snow, Curtis keeps their yard clear with his trusty lawn mower. He clears the entire yard like this and the grass is always visible through the ice thatís left there then. Theyíre always the first to see grass when the temperatures rise and the ice melts away, because of his unusual snow removal methods.

Halli Lindley snapped the current shot of something you donít often see in the winter...color! Her horses were dressed up with no place to go when she snapped this shot earlier this week. Those colorful horse blankets theyíre wearing are as welcome as the sunshine that appeared that day, too.

To round off our unusual, out of the ordinary oddities today, we have a video clip of a John Deere Snow-Mower, not something youíll see everyday zipping along on the snowmobile trails. Itís pretty cool actually!

Unusual pix and video! I noticed that there is no bag for clippings so I'm assuming it's a mulcher.

The Sno-mower reminds me of the Yooper lawn

Just thinking about my sister Karen Diane. She died 5 years ago today. She was 68. I still miss her, we were such good friends.

That John Deere Snow Mower is a cute idea! When my 8 hp MTD Snowblower blew the engine for the 2nd time, I took the 18 hp JLO engine from my '68 Polaris Mustang and adapted it to the snowblower. Voi Kauhea! What a machine!

Ken, Ken, Ken,

Are you blasting holes in the neighbor's fence with ice chunks from your snowthrower?

I regret that rather than making a joke i didn't say
how sorry i was about Karen. It's always hard to
lose someone, especially someone that young. May our
Lord comfort you as you remember her.
