Check out the weather forecast for the rest of this week in the snowbelt of the U.P., you'll see some warming temperatures, even up into the 60 range. Which of course means that our first big snowfall of the season will be history before you know it. Rebecca Kellan joined our family of Pasty Cam Guest Gallery photographers, just in time to supply us with a scene of our October snowfall. Actually it's a little early for snow to stick around in these parts and if you look real close, you can see it's already melting away, with droplets hanging precariously from the leaves. Have no fear though, more will be on the way...

First PostBrrrrrr!!!!!

By CA on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:01 am:

Am I first? [No, Mary usually is :o)]

Hello from wet San Diego.
1st rain in 182 days & now too much.

By John / New Hampshire on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:02 am:

Good morning from New Hampshire!
Go RedSox!

By N from M on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:03 am:

Good morning from Massachusetts. Darned Sox won again - I
hate that. Let's hear it for the Tigers, and may they wipe the Sox
next year!

By Erin, Novi MI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:04 am:

Very pretty photo. I would love to see some snow down here.

By Skylar in WI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:11 am:

MMMMMM, snow. Later, Skylar.

By Frances S. Georgia on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:11 am:

Good Morning, BURRR that look's cold.
It is still in the high 80's here in South Georgia

By Bayley - Plymouth, MI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:18 am:

Q: Why doesn't Toledo have a major league baseball team?

A: Because Detroit would then want one as well.

Hopefully the warm weather will hold out through this coming weekend for the Lake Superior Pro Rally. However, sitting on a log in the cold snow covered UP was always half of the fun(?) of the Rally.

The other half has always been the "Rally Chili" served outside "UP Chucks" on Friday night.

By kc, MN on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:20 am:

Definitely not ready for snow!!

By L-O-V-E Pastycam! on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:23 am:

There's something reassuring about the change of the season's as shown on Pastycam. The older I get the more these pics conjure memories.... Hmmmm... "...can I use my cross-country skis yet? Darn, not enough snow for my snowshoes, either!"

By Down State Dave on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:41 am:

Welcome Rebecca -- nice picture, nice album. We will look forward to more!

By Jim of Ann Arbor on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 08:58 am:

to Bayley in Plymouth:
check out the Mudhens, maybe the best feeder to the tigers, oh
you probably know this already.

By maijaMI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 09:05 am:

bayley: GROAN!! but give us more!

Kosk, Danbury, and ME: Thanks so much. Actually, by the time we left on Sunday, we had only wet roads all the way to St. Ignace. It was beautiful there. Woke to a beautiful sunrise over the straits of Mackinac. Had a good cry that morning, and am now feeling almost normal.

To anyone who can't make it to the Keweenaw: the straits is a beautiful, magical place as well. The Mackinac bridge is truly a wonder to behold. If you haven't seen it, go there!

By Angelflyin on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 09:15 am:

That's not a harbinger........That's a promise....
And I thought snow before Halloween was a big deal way back in 64. Where did those years go?

By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 09:29 am:

I don't like the Red Sox or the White Sox... I like the Nylons! (They get more RUNS).

(OK, OK... I'll stick to my day job as an A-1 Sauce Experimentation Director).

By Candy, CA on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 09:40 am:

Alex, congrats on the promotion -- from tester to director!

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 09:42 am:

Just read Sharon Smith's daily journal. (I keep wanting to call her Sharon Stone!) She tipped us off that George Hite is back with his Eagle Harbor web. I love his writings! He really portrays what it must "feel" like to live in Eagle Harbor in the winter.

By Capt. Paul in Nevada on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 09:49 am:

Good morning from rainy Nevada...

At least I'm glad to see everyone in a "pun"ishing mood this morning ;-)

By Kevin K. Lodi, CA. on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 10:21 am:

Good Morning from a gusty wet Central Valley. We are looking at record rain fall today.

By PFD, MI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 10:23 am:

Good morning from chilly east houghton!! No snow here, just a lot of leaves, most infected with the "black tar" fungus, falling!!!! Did a little raking out in the fresh air...nothing like a little exercise to get the old metabolism going!!

By shelly/Yankee in Texas on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 10:24 am:

Go Astro's!!!!

Good Morning from Houston! Send some of that cool weather this way; its hot and muggy at 93 today! :|

By Heather in arizona on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 10:33 am:

Good morning from Tucson. I've been missing home! But, I must say that it was such a nice morning here (chilly and damp with a little fog [yes, fog] hanging over the basin) that I refused to even turn on the radio during the drive in this morning. Keep the great memories of home a comin'!

By C. Hadley on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 11:12 am:

Is there anyway possible that video could be added, with sound? So us poor folk that are not able to live up there could access and play? There are plenty of web cams out there, but none with sound. It would do allot of people good to have access to the u.p. in that manner. Maybe you could set up a pay pal account and those that visit this site often could chip in a few bucks until an amount was reached for the purchase of the equipment. Whatcha think?

By Dr. Nat in Nevada on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 11:27 am:

Good morning from Vegas!

This morning we had a beautiful desert sunrise. Then as I drove into Vegas, dark grey clouds heavy with rain were boiling over the mountains to the west, swirling around the tallest peaks and promising us that most precious resource of the desert.

Have a great day, everyone!

By trolltransplant on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 12:03 pm:

How about them Huskies!! #8 in the Nation!!

By Audrey, San Jose, CA on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 12:10 pm:

Good morning from a very rainy San Jose! Wish I was home doing what my cat is doing... all curled up on the couch!

By hit a nerve on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 12:34 pm:

C. Hadley, how 'bout planning a trip up here every 6 months or so, so you can capture the whole Yooper experience on your very own high tech equipment.

By maijaMI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 01:07 pm:

Alex: groan to you too, but keep um coming.

By shelly/Yankee in Texas on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 02:06 pm:

Jeff from Texas, just read the posts from yesterday, I say Ya to da U.P. eh? When do we leave?

By Steve in South Bend on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 03:05 pm:

With the cool damp weather I figured it was a good time to order some pasties. I can't wait until I get to a good friends house Friday night pop them in the oven and tell stories about past Isle Royale trips.

By Alice, Ventura, CA on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 03:17 pm:

I think the PayPal account would be a good idea, even if not for the audio/video system C. Hadley mentioned. It would be a great way to pay for those pasties!

Oh, and by the way, CA, wet in San Diego...it is wet in Ventura too. I am going up to the Bay Area for a wedding this weekend. Hope the weather clears because I think it is supposed to be outdoors! The whole family is flying out from Michigan (except the groom. He lives here.)

By shelly on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 03:32 pm:


Wanted to tell you that I read your post the other day about Mackinaw. It is my favorite place in Michigan. Sorry Yoopers! :| I love it and I am glad that you were able to go there and let it soothe you in such a sad time in your life. >Wishing you comfort.


By Foghorn on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 04:19 pm:

Windy and rainy in Little Betsy. We had a dusting of snow on Sunday and went to Calumet and they were using the plows! Some nice weather yet to come, I hope. Leaves are coming down.

By Candy, CA on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 04:45 pm:

I think all of CA is damp and windy today -- lots of rain here in the Sierra foothills, with snow at higher elevations. Mud slides from the rain have already closed one road, and the winds are gusting to between 25-30 mph. Still, I don't have to shovel any of it...

By downstate don on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 04:50 pm:

Just hoping for a little sunshine here in Lower
Michigan..to warm things up a bit!

By Gary Singer St Louis, Mo. on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 04:52 pm:

Just got back from the warm Keweenaw last week. I need a 1900's original Copper ingot from the Calumet or one of the bars from the sunken ship. Will pay over $500.00.

By Cherie Coe, California on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 05:06 pm:

Beautiful photo! I was born and lived in Marquette until age 13. The last Halloween we lived there I went trick or treating in the snow! Now live outside of Los Angeles and we're getting rain. Not as pretty as the snow but you don't have to shovel it.

By shelly on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 05:23 pm:

Let it snow...let it snow...let it snow!!!!

By Yooper in Indiana on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 05:34 pm:

Steve in South Bend
You from up there or just a tourist. I work in South Bend and live near Elkhart and am a native of the Keweenaw, God's Country!

By Shirley Laurin, Farmington Hills, MI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 05:42 pm:

I always check the posts daily on this most interesting website. but don't often send messages. The photos have been absolutely beautiful lately...fall is my favorite time of the year and love the beautiful winters in the Keweenaw, too. Michigan is a gorgeous state and I agree the Mackinaw bridge is a sight to behold. We go to Mackinaw Island every year.

By maijaMI on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 05:51 pm:

Shell: thanks

By shelly/Yankee in Texas on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 05:56 pm:

See y'all tomorrow!

By Margaret, Amarillo TX on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 07:25 pm:

Great photo from a joiner. Great messages from great people.

By BT,TC on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 07:50 pm:

Oh...the Mackinac Bridge...gateway to Heaven!

By Dave, Laurium on Tuesday, October 19, 2004 - 11:21 pm:

Here's my favorite 'Big Mac"....

By Rebecca Kellan, MI on Wednesday, October 20, 2004 - 12:32 am:

Thanks everyone for the great comments on my photo!! It is very exciting to have so many people enjoying my work!!

By Chuck, IL on Wednesday, October 20, 2004 - 07:08 am:

Sure - The snow was pretty. Tell that to the motorists in the ditch that we saw after we headed into town when we lost power at the motel!

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Monday, April 13, 2009 - 01:19 pm:

Another nice Autumn-Winter picture.
