This house showed up on the Pasty Cam eight years ago in response to a note from a viewer, wondering if his old homestead was still standing. His dad worked for Calumet and Hecla which, of course, dominated the area in the early 1900s. You'll find many old photos of C&H on this page and others in Copper Country Reflections. Here's a sample:
a portion of C&H property.

Take a look at the full photo, too.

First PostMorning, no snow yet!

Good morning.

Morning from Mishawaka, IN. We to are waiting for, who knows what. Ice first then snow. Sounds like fun.
Have a safe weekend.

It's cold here in Toronto, but no new snow is on the ground--just
the gray, previously frozen variety. Another good reason to check
out PastyCam.

Looking forward to an evening of storytelling and fiddling by some
folks from Newfoundland. Newfoundlanders are as attached to the
land as we Yoopers, former Yoopers and Yooper Wanabes.

Big doings at Suicide Hill in Ishpeming today. My daughter and her
pals are going to watch the ski jumping later on. My father and
uncles participated in this sport, but I alas, am afraid to climb a

Good Morning, hoping its not so windy so we can get outside for a while. Getting cabin fever pretty bad. Spring will be here soon.

By Theresa R Brunk (Trb0013) on Saturday, February 24, 2007 - 11:07 am:

Good Morning all. I live in Tampa Florida now, but I was raised in the Soo and would travel to Copper Harbor yearly and just drink in the whole Keweenah. I truely miss it. I have to make my own pasty's, but they are not the same as eating them in my truck from the Calumet Bakery.

I hope you all don't get very much ice, Charlotte! I see that you all are on the projected ice then snow of the storm.

They moved up our Winter Storm Watch. Now it begins tonight. They also increased the amount of potential snow to 6 to 13 inches. My sons are cheering for a snow day on Monday, but you can't count your chickies before they hatch. You never know for sure what these fickle snow storms can do. And, our school supt. is very stingy with granting snow days, even though we still have some left in the pocket left to use this school year.

Jonny, my youngest son, and I are hoping to get out this afternoon to run some errands that had to be put off because of the frigid weather & his very busy schedule. One of the errands is going to Sam's Club to get a number of things we need, plus some dried cherries that I want, so I will be able to make a new recipe that I found for Cherry Pecan (Oatmeal) Cookies, that looks delicious!

It's about 32 degrees here in sunny Marengo, IL. We are under a blizzard warning until Sunday at noon.(Although I have heard it's supposed to snow through Monday) Have heard up to 9-12" Got food in yesterday, everything's all set, don't have to go anywhere, let the snow begin!

It's really drippy here. We were supposed to be south enough to not get this--oh well, so much for directions. I like the way this picture has what is what and when and if it had a demise. Makes looking at a today picture more special.

Doings today at Copper Peak, Copper Peak Hill Climb with snowmobiles! It is awesome to see them snowmobiles climb and sometimes they come tumbling town the Peak. They had to cancel the last 2 years because of the weather. Mother Nature is at her best this winter. IF you get a chance get over and see it!

By Gonna be a Yooper (Joanie) on Saturday, February 24, 2007 - 01:11 pm:

The wind is howling, something's a-brewin'! This weather reminds me of a little story about my son Johnny;

One cold winter evening during a howling winter storm, I was tucking Johnny into bed. I was about to turn off the light when he asked with a tremor in his voice, "Mommy, will you sleep with me tonight?" I smiled and gave him a reassuring hug. "I can't dear," she said. "I have to sleep in Daddy's room."
A long silence was broken at last by a shaken little voice saying, "That big sissy."

I could be wrong, but somehow I thought 100K hits on PastyCam were a matter of hours, maybe days - not weeks.
Were I right, that'd be an even better perspective.

By Gonna be a Yooper (Joanie) on Saturday, February 24, 2007 - 05:26 pm:

Boy, oh, boy, oh, boy, did I pick the wrong night to cook hamburgers on the grill! It started out as a big snow white-out, now it's raining! Looks like we're gonna get the "mixed mess"!
Hope you all stay nice, safe and warm!
See ya in the morn!

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Saturday, February 24, 2007 - 05:32 pm:

:-) Joanie, maybe it's time for a slight change of plans, like to broiled (inside) hamburgers, or cooked on the stovetop?

I really hope that you all don't get ice! If you do, I hope you don't get enough to knock out your power!

Stay safe & warm!

I agree that if we all chip in even a very small amount, it can make a huge difference. I know that a person cannot respond to every severe need one hears of. But then, I thought of this site and the great pleasure it provides EVERY DAY at no cost to us. Sending a little is one way to thank Mary and all who provide this site.
