First Post

Good morning all, freezing rain on the roads here...all schools closed today. With the higher temps, it should improve. Look at me, I sound like the "Weather" Lady!!

Foggy in Oshkosh. beginning to wonder when the bulbs are going to try and bloom. Freezing November, Snowy December, Warm January. God does a great job of keeping us guessing!

Yooper...have a hoppy day...:) Love your animations esp. the puppies with waggy tails the other day.

At the risk of sounding like Pollyanna, I'm actually enjoying this weather! I don't mind the gray, the light rain, etc. Gray is one of my favorite colors! This ought to spark some conversation (probably about the crazy lady down in Genesee).

I just love dark, cloudy, rainy and dreary days. They actually make me happy. I also happen to love sunny days too. But there's something very comforting about the rain. Maybe it's because when I'm home during that weather it brings on a sense of security. At least that's how I feel.

If we didn't have gray days, how could we appreciate the sunshine?

RC Wetton:
I just read about the passing of your father Chester in the Mining Gazette.
As kids we had great times out at Wetton's cabins, swimming and just having fun in the summertime. Good memories.

On behaf of myself and family, you have our condolences.

Marsha, Rainy/gray days give me that 'cozy feeling' know, light some candles and cuddle up with a great book, kinda cozy.
Anywho Marsha, your post reminds me of one rainy day, when I was standing outside the courthouse, during a break. "I love the rain," I told my co worker. He shook his head and looked at me..."yesterday when it was snowing, you said, 'I love the snow,'...and the day before that when the sun was shining you said, 'I love it when the sun shines'...and when it was below zero the other day you said, 'I love it when it's cold out'. Is there any weather that you don't like," he asked sarcastically.
I thought for a second, "well I really can't stand the heat of the summer," I replied. Now is that a Michiganner or what?

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 02:30 pm:

Yes! We have the same weather taste, sur5er.

Looking for someone who has been to the B-17 plane crash in the State Park. I would like to visit it and need GPS coordinates (or very detailed directions). Fell free to email.

If anyone thinks the blast from the past photo looks interesting, go to this link for some truely awe-inspiring photos of the phenomenon know as "Ice Volcanoes". For a couple winters we studied/played on these volcanoes found in certain locations along the west shore of the Keweenaw where the depth, shoreline and wind orientation were ideal. McLains park is one of those places if you'd like to see them in person...

By happyooper (Trigal) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 04:29 pm:

Those 'ice volcanoes' are awesome! We used to go snowshoing up and down the 'frozen waves' looking for neat holes and cracks. What a surprise when the volcano sneaks up and drenches you! We'd hightail it back to the cabin to warm up, change clothes and try again. :)

By maija in Commerce Township (Maija) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 04:58 pm:

I agree with the weather comments. All the variation is great. The only weather I wouldn't like is when it always stays the same.

By Margaret, Amarillo TX (Margaret) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 08:19 pm:

Marc: great shots.

Now about a volcano question. Will what happened today in Alaska cause a Tsunami in Hawaii as that is where Tsunami's come from when Hawaii has one?

By Connie, Eagle River Alaska (Connie8792) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 09:29 pm:

Here's a cool site to check out about Alaska's volcano's, go to the link to read about the eruption today. So far there is no tsunami hazard.

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 10:24 pm:

Margaret, in order for a tsunami to occur, a large amount of water has to be displaced by something, I believe. A simple volcanic eruption can't just trigger one. I don't think a volcanic eruption would qualify unless it caused a large mass of earth to displace a large mass of water, rather quickly, from say a related earthquake that shifts a large section of crust (like what happened over here in Asia, recently-I'm very close to that spot right now) or a rather large chunk of a volcano falling into the sea.
Anyway, my geologic knowledge is fading fast these days, but I bet Capt Paul and Dr. Nat would have a better answer...

By Seismic Pirate (Marc) on Wednesday, January 11, 2006 - 11:18 pm:

Last note on the ice volcanoes-
Until recently I thought they had only been noted on Lk. Superior, but I've found they have been spotted on several other planets/moons and on the shores of Lk. Erie. Google is a wonderful thing-type "ice volcanoes" and off you go around the solar system and the Great Lakes.

What a cheerful sight all the hopping happy heads.
Thanks Yooper.
