Eight years ago, in Pastyvision, is the boat launch at Gratiot Lake and a beautiful sky above.

Today will not be nearly so nice in the Keweenaw with rain and 56 degrees predicted. Michigan Tech students will celebrate K-Day today at McLain State Park. Winds gusting to 24? Brrrrr.

Good morning, one and all!!

Looks like one of those typical raw, early Fall days in the Keweenaw today. We probably won't get a day like that here until maybe January, if we're lucky.....

Much needed rain!

The sandhill cranes are walking around looking drowned, especially since they have dropped their red plumage, and have gone gray. Their flight to Florida should be coming soon ... I think the "hummers" have already started.

Good grief!!! It looks like the sun forgot to come UP today! Look at the Cams -- all are dark!

Edie and I watched the moonrise here in Eagle River last night. It floated up over Crestview, the ridge back up behind the Eagle River Falls. It was a cloudless sky and a windless night, but this morning we awoke to the gales of November come early, and a landscape soaked in much-needed rain. We had several power failures overnight in the Keweenaw, which is why the dark webcams.

Thanks for everyone's patience in waiting for the re-opening of the Hut and Pasty Central Express. It has been a long and winding road in our effort to restore this acclaimed landmark. This week we received approval to begin baking in the new USDA inspected kitchen, the building behind the Hut, where the old motel used to be. This weekend the pasty delivery schedule will be posted, along with reactivation of the online order form.

Not much longer now :o)...

The Hut

I was just about to ask if there was an airshow at the airport this weekend, and Frnash, you've already answered. Thanks -- looks like fun.

Thank you Mary for assisting me with my password. Your help was greatly appreciated.

On the mountain where I live a flock of Canada geese arrived about 2 weeks ago honking loudly making their arrival well known much to the chagrin of the golfers. They have taken residence at the pond and waterfall. Also, some of the trees have turned red (all the same variety) which is about 2 months earlier than usual, so are we going to have an early winter? A colder winter? I know the trees were really stressed from that terrible heat wave we had and maybe that could have something to do with it, but some of those leave just turned brown and dropped, whereas these leaves have changed color.
Very unusual for California.

Hello Everyone

By JanieT (Bobbysgirl) on Friday, September 8, 2006 - 08:07 pm:

Hi Beverly!! About the winter season coming up...I have read two varieties of the Farmer's Almanac, both stated for the midwest, colder than normal temps with above snowfall as early as mid November. I have noticed all of my horses have grown about 1 1/2 in. of winter hair since late August. Can't help but wonder, looking forward to reading John Dee's winter outlook published on his website sometime in October!

By Happy to be in the U.P. (Lahelo) on Friday, September 8, 2006 - 10:20 pm:

Can't wait for the Hut to re-open, it will be fantastic. A friendly place and friendly faces for sure! The food will be yummmmmyyyyy!!

Great news about the HUT. Look forward to going
there in 2007. Have a good weekend everyone!!

It is said that the amount of pinecones also predicts hard winters, and here in the motown area there are tons.
