More of the wet, heavy snow from last weekís return of winter here in the Keweenaw. Barbara Bouwkamp captured some shots of the wintry mess on her street in Laurium. First with her hubby, Tom, out there running the snowblower to move what the snowplow had deposited in their driveway and front of the house. You can see the path they shoveled to the house and steps in the second photo. In the scheme of things, for winter here in the Keweenaw, itís not really all that much, with over a foot that fell, but considering that a week or so ago, we had bare ground and temps in the 50ís, itís hard to go back to winter once again. We just have to keep telling ourselves that itís April now and hopefully the snow wonít be around much longer.

Our video today from Visit Keweenaw, highlights the Alexander Agassiz statue near the Keweenaw National Historic Park. It gives a bit of history about the man and his contributions to the Community as President of the Calumet & Hecla Mining Company.

Blizzard warning for today in your neck of the woods! We knew it was going to happen, right? Be careful shoveling that heavy snow.

Deb, hope today isn't Ron's surgery. If so, perhaps it will be rescheduled. Be careful out there!

Ouch! I noticed that 50 degree temps
are on the horizon for the Houghton area,
but there may be a few bumps in the road
before that happens.

Spring blizzards are expected, even downstate. I hope your current batch of snow doesn't stick around too long.

This is not new...This is yearly....

What a wonderful video....is that interesting!

The Farmers Almanac has some interesting info about what a Noreaster is. There's also a video on the page about it. Check out the info here: Noreaster

These totally depict what happened and it's back. Though, we maybe have 3" so far. I hope it stays like this. It's just extremity windy. They're getting hammered easy of here, though.

Jbuck, Ron's surgery is tomorrow. So we can hopefully get it all cleaned up and it doesn't come back. We have kind neighbors who are willing to pitch in tomorrow if it gets worse, so I can get into my driveway when I come home. They're keeping Ron overnight. We are accepting prayers for an easy surgery and recovery, as well as good
weather. Thanks to everybody for thinking about him.

Best wishes to Ron (Mr Deb) for his surgery tomorrow. Hope the weather gives you guys a break, Deb!

By Alex - UP-Goldwinger (Alex) on Wednesday, April 3, 2024 - 01:44 pm:

Positive thoughts and prayers, Ron.
Show Ďem how itís done, Dude!

By jbuck (Jbuck) on Wednesday, April 3, 2024 - 08:42 pm:

Deb, we're surrounding you with prayers for a successful surgery & recovery for Ron and peace and wisdom for you in the days after Ron comes home. You know what they say "one day at a time". Glad the neighbors are helping too!

By D. A. (Midwested) on Wednesday, April 3, 2024 - 10:30 pm:

Bests wishes to Ron for a speedy and full recovery. It's his shoulder, right? Those can be painful.

My memory of Keweenaw winters was that is got cold and stayed cold. There was none of this freeze and thaw with "slushy" days. When the humidity dropped, the cold didn't feel so bad back then. Nothing was cleaned down to the pavement except for 41 so everywhere you walked it was always crunch, crunch, crunch. I think because I didn't have a car and didn't have to shovel, the times seemed better than today.

These late season storms typically drop the wet & heavy stuff that's so much harder to clear. Now at 70 YO with a driveway and sidewalk, I've had enough of it after the first storm.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Thursday, April 4, 2024 - 05:20 am:

Ron and I thank everybody for all the prayers and
well wishes. How can anything go wrong with all of
our pasty friends behind us?
