What to do on a mild winter day in the Keweenaw? Hmm, how about head to Copper Harbor for a walk around to see the harbor and whether it’s iced in or not? That’s what Chris Gariepy and his family did this past Sunday and he snapped a few photos to share with us all. Looks like there’s just a smattering of ice in the harbor by the Sixth Street Dock and Boardwalk area, with the dock a bit snow-covered, too. This is one of my favorite spots in Copper Harbor, it’s great for kayaking around without worrying about being run over by a power boat. Not that any boating or kayaking are going on this time of year. Over closer to the Isle Royale Queen side of this portion of the harbor, Chris found some interesting ice, which leads me to believe there may have been more ice earlier and then it broke up and floated into coves like the one in the third photo.

In The Keweenaw shares a “January Blues” video, featuring a number of sights around Copper Harbor, from the air. We’ll be on the west end of Brockway Mountain Drive, looking east and then fly over the Keweenaw Mountain Lodge, too.

Beautiful!! It may be gray, but it's still God's
Country and heaven to me.... the music was
uplifting! I'm ready to take on the day!!

Actually headed out to get my Covid vaccine this
morning in my time slot. Hope they haven't run
out... I'll keep you posted! :=))

Hey UC good for you & I hope you don't experience any side effects. I think I'll be getting a shot later today but it'll be Jack Daniels for me . . !

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Friday, January 22, 2021 - 11:46 am:

George L.; do you use a syringe needle or a syringe pump? I prefer an IV drip myself.
Good luck today UC! I will be waiting awhile until things settle down before I get mine. My issue is the wait-time, unfortunately I can't wait in line for long periods.
Nice set today!

By George L. (Yooperinct) on Friday, January 22, 2021 - 02:00 pm:

Alex, the IV drip works best by far. Easier to maintain a nice, even buzz.
UC, do let us know how you did this morning. Somehow, whenever I get an injection, the needle always seems to have a big square tip!

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Friday, January 22, 2021 - 03:18 pm:

Hey Gents.... I'd like to join you in that kind of
IV.... lol

I received the Moderna this morning, wait wasn't
too bad and no side effects. I hear the second dose
is not so easy and tylenol should be taken right
after the second shot....vaccine guys!! :=))

Have a great weekend all!!

By Donna (Donna) on Friday, January 22, 2021 - 04:44 pm:

Unk...excellent news on the vaccine...

Great pics and I LOVE drone vids!!

By Uncle Chuck (Unclechuck) on Friday, January 22, 2021 - 10:01 pm:

Alex.... I know what you mean about waiting in long
lines. I'm taking lasix currently... luckily I had
an appointment and waiting wasn't too bad, hoping
for the same for you and all of the Pasty Fam!! Now
bring on the Mega Lottery, maybe someone in the
U.P. will win tonight!!

Oh, Copper Harbor! How I love you. So many
memories, as with alot of many others UP there.
I don't have a chance to check in every day, but
Alex, on the 19th your comments had my laughing to
tears!!!! Alex, you should have been a comedian!
Your humor is amazing! LOL!!!!!

I see the dock pictures were taken at the corner of Brockway and Sixth.

I think you are mistaking it for Brockway and Fifth.
I was fortunate to get my first dose this past Tuesday. It was the first offering of 1000 doses in my county for the 1B group. It was a first come, first served, get in line in your car. They opened at 9am but I was there are 4am and was 25th in line. By 9am there was a very uncontrolled, unsupervised line of cars behind me that extended for 2 miles.

It's quite unclear now, how, and when and even if I'll be able to get the 2nd dose on schedule. The CDC just yesterday changed the "science" by saying the 2nd dose can wait 6 weeks. Funny how that science stuff just changed. Oh well, 50% immunity or maybe even better is certainly preferred compared to where I was.

The new rules this week are to release more vaccine rather than hold back enough for the 2nd doses. I am so glad more and more people are getting it. Of course, the concern is if the 2nd dose happens way late, will people get to that 95% (or close) immunity that was originally promised.

By Alex "UP-Goldwinger" (Alex) on Sunday, January 24, 2021 - 08:24 pm:

Greta Jones: Glad you had a good chuckle. Humor
helps me get the through the crazy times that we
are all going thru. I feel deprived if I don't get
a good daily chuckle.
Thanks for the update D.A.

By Greta Jones (Urbanescapees) on Sunday, January 24, 2021 - 10:58 pm:

Laughing to tears over the Jack Daniels IV too!!
Keep up the humor guys - you rock!!!!

By George L. (Yooperinct) on Monday, January 25, 2021 - 12:17 pm:

Greta, I think UC, Alex and I have become the unofficial, unsung heroes of comedic relief here on the pasty site. Alex, you're spot on, too -- also for me, humor has always been a way of coping with whatever might darken the skies. And yes, getting a daily chuckle is a bright moment . . . and even better, being able to give a chuckle to others makes my day.

By D. A. (Midwested) on Monday, January 25, 2021 - 02:35 pm:

George, Alex:

I need to either get less subtle or get a better comedy writer, LOL.
