Eight years ago the Pasty Cam featured the old State Police post building in Calumet. The new post, shown below, is south of Calumet on US-41, just as you are coming around a curve and just before the speed limit decreases. Seems like a great place for a speed trap, although I've never encountered one there, personally.

Good Morning!

Good morning! We broke records yesterday with our high temps in the 60's. Unfortunately, we're not going to do it today. It's only going to be in the 40's. Still nice.

Good Morning to all...yes Allen, still there!

Good Morning! I love those old stone buildings. Yesterday was great, had window down all the way home. Too bad rain today, but its still warm.

Good morning from stormy Houston....

I believe that building was used by C&H as the Mine Captain's Office in the 1800's. Any thoughts??

In regards to yesterdays post by Marianne about the rescue of the ice fishermen. Here in California, and I'm sure that it depends on if it was an unwise choice or just accident. But there have been people that have been lost hiking and they have had to pony up the money for the rescue operations. When I've hiked in Yosemite they offer an insurance package that cost's around $10 that will cover any search and rescue up to a certain cost amount. I agree, you do something mindless you should pay for the rescue operations. Looking at 80° here again today.

Greetins from sunny and hot Casa Grande, AZ. 91F today but low humidity. Makes looking at today's picture easy to do.

Capt. Paul I'm 75 and I always heard what you said--that building was a mine captain's office. If I remember correctly it was located on Mine St.(?) one block east of the school.

By Richard Wieber (Dickingrayling) on Wednesday, March 14, 2007 - 11:37 am:

Tom Karjala--greetings from central Florida. Our temp is 80 and humid. Have spent 8 years visiting Casa Grande and the southwest in general. Stayed a Palm Creek until it got too expensive. Moved over to the park where I-10 and I-8 meet. Nice folks. Hope you enjoy the area as much as I did. In Florida for 3 years due to health restrictions. Hope to go west next winter.

Marianne, I just saw your post from yesterday...and I completely agree with you. When the weather starts to warm up, that ice is unsafe...pure and simple. Living either by or on Lake Erie most of my life, warm weather always brought the sound of Coast Guard helicopters in the air, searching for ice fishermen who had either fallen through the ice, or were adrift in the lake on an ice flow. The cost for these rescue missions are in the thousands of dollars, especially when you take into consideration the amount of manpower utilized by the Coast Guard and surrounding law enforcement agencies.
But people just assume that they are 'entitled' to these services. I remember one year, an ice fisherman was stranded on a ice flow...and after the Coast Guard rescued him, he was irate because they refused to do anything about his new truck that was adrift on the flow. Hullo?
Just the other day, a fisherman went ice fishing on Lake Erie, on his snowmobile...after days of high winds tearing at the already thawing lake ice. They're still searching for him. A tragedy that was completely avoidable.

Here in MN when it starts to warm up, the diehards (there is another word that starts with D that would be more appropriate, but this is a family show) lay planks from the shore to the ice. I've helped pull more than one person (all alive) from the water because their plank floated away while they were enjoying that laaaaaaaast day of ice fishing.
