Jeff Heikkinen of Mohawk puts the finishing touches on the Eagle River monument. Thanks to the generous gifts of our Internet friends, Still Waters and the Keweenaw Historical Society were enabled to sponsor this joint repair project eight years ago.

Good Morning...I'll go back to english since my russian greeting got pulled yesterday

Sorry about that, Tim. The characters you used came through on the browser as a series of question marks.

Good morning. It is sunny today and,after a dismal day yesterday,it is good to see the sun. Hope you all have a nice day.

Who's responsible for raising Saturday's temperature every time I check it online? I see it now says 100 degrees! And I'll be serving boiling soup at the Aura Jamboree. My glasses will probably slide right off my nose into the soup! It'll taste good though, regardless of the air temperature! My daughter and almost 5-year old granddaughter are coming with us. The little one is worried about crossing the Mackinaw Bridge ("It might be wood and crash down.") and the cottage ("You won't make me sleep outside, will you?"). And, of course, she thinks wild bears are roaming everywhere you look.

Marsha I'll be thinking of you while I'm reffing
3 consecutive soccer games in the afternoon.

If I know your stirring a hot soup pot, maybe
I won't feel so bad ;-)

Just got this email from my son Rob sitting in a

so today has been great... went to the top of my first alp! now I'm
sitting in Grödig, Austria (try and find that :P) waiting for a bus to
Berchtesgaden. You know that lake they swim in at the end of Band of
Brothers... I'm pretty sure its the Königsee there. But I'm heading there
as a random little day trip. Vienna was cool, amazing buildings.

The Bridge Up!

Amen for the bridge cam. Good job fellows.

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 01:10 pm:

Marsha--Have fun! It is HOT up here. We were really hot while scrambling around the rocks at the Silver Falls near Hermann yesterday. My 84 year old father and 12 year old dog were absolutely amazing despite the heat. Gas is expensive--especially if you're driving the the camp pickup which must get 6 miles to the gallon.

By FJL (Langoman) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 01:11 pm:

Now both the bridge cam and the bridge are stuck.... :)

" Now both the bridge cam and the bridge are stuck."
What, 90° is too hot for da bridge?

By Steve Haagen (Radsrh) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 05:47 pm:

Hay the boat made it under the bridge after 8 days

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 06:13 pm:

kosk: You were at my favorite falls! If you'd waited until Sunday, you might've ran into me there!

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 06:17 pm:

I can't believe it! Now they're saying 101 degrees for Saturday for Baraga area weather. Maybe we should be serving gazpacho instead of bean soup!

By Alex J. Tiensivu (Ajtiensivu) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 07:51 pm:

THE BRIDGE IS STUCK??????? Where is the traffic being routed? When did this happen?

By Ms. Katie (Mskatie) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 07:58 pm:

Welcome back Alex. Wondered where you were :)

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 08:43 pm:

Hey Kosk!

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 09:57 pm:

Alex,if the bridge is stuck there is no other way to get across.You sit there or go back in the direction you came:)

Japei,I enjoyed the Chernobyl pictures. Interesting.

By eugenia r. thompson (Ert) on Thursday, July 13, 2006 - 10:06 pm:

Check this out:

and you can see (or could see before it got dark) that the bridge isn't stuck; only BridgeCam is once again stuck.

But I really am glad they let that little boat finally make it under the bridge! :)

By FRNash/PHX, AZ (Frnash) on Friday, July 14, 2006 - 01:13 am:

Was someone kidding us???

I thought perhaps the extreme heat today (highs of 90° at the airport, 95° in Lake Linden, and 94.1° in Pelkie) had caused some components of the bridge to expand such that it could not be raised to its full elevation for the S/V Denis Sullivan that's visiting Houghton this week.

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Friday, July 14, 2006 - 05:03 am:

Maybe it'll still be there when we're in Houghton Sunday. Here we come!

Happy Birthday Beverly :) How many flamingos did you get for your birthday? ;)
