Good morning from Tampa Bay where it is currently 79º with 68% humidity. Looks like I will need more ice tea if it reaches 87º as predicted.

Good morning from Lansing where I'm visiting for my granddaughter Mallory's first birthday. The party was held outside yesterday on a pleasant fall day. And it's another beautiful day day today & it is supposed to go into the high seventies. Still time for barbecueing & enjoying the weather. Hope everyone is enjoying their last day of September.

Happy Birthday Darren & Lisa from Mom

Congrats on the early bird, Mikie ;) Deb, please don't send that MN rain this way. I want to be able to put my Monday morning wash on the line tomorrow ;)

By Liz B (Lizidaho) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 01:55 pm:

Sur5er, Glad you are back and up and running again!

By WishingIWasInDaUP (Sur5er) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 02:23 pm:

Liz, Yepper depper. I'm sorta up and running. Waiting for my DSL hookup and using dial-up with another screen name for now:

I was going to email you, Fran, Margaret, Cheryl, Joanie, and Kay to thank ya'll for the wondeful supportive letters and cards that I received from all of you...but I can't access my regular AOL account, to access everyone's email addresses :(

Miss your Monday emails about your exciting weekends :)

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 02:32 pm:

Sur5er, I'm glad to see you back. You should be able to access your regular AOL account. When you install AOL, then you tell it that you already have an account, and log in with that name. I have done that numerous times.

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 04:55 pm:

Hello all, another really nice day. Spent a lot of it outside, going to enjoy it while I can.

By Fran in GA (Francesinga) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 05:46 pm:

Sur5er oh wow you are back! I sure have missed hearing from you. It seems like ages since we got to visit. I sure have thought of you tho.

Welcome Cindy!! I did grow up in the UP but over on the east end (Sault Ste. Marie) But everyoe here has welcomed me with open arms, Welcome back

By Marsha, Genesee/Aura (Marsha) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 09:04 pm:

It's 59 to 61 degrees in Baraga. Saw Cindy's post yesterday. Welcome!

By Charlotte, Mishawaka, IN (Charlotte61) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 09:25 pm:

Cindy, welcome. I'm not even a Yooper, just a wanabe and everyone has welcomed me. I learn so much from this website and just this last summer finally got to the west end of the UP.

By Gary Schrebe (Shrub31) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 09:50 pm:

Hello everyone. This is my first posting but have automatically had the site's messages downloaded to my email account for a long time. I really enjoy all of the information that comes out of the UP and the Copper Country. Having been a '68' Tech graduate, growing up in Muskegon, living in Midland for a lot of years, and going to the UP at least for a week every year since I feel like a Yooper. Now Knoxville is my home but will actually be in the UP next week. Hope to get some great pictures and smell the fall coming into full bloom. I know Cindy, also, so there is another tie.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 09:52 pm:

Welcome Gary! And have a great trip next week. Two years ago we were there at that time and the colors were spectacular. I hope you have the same luck!

By Gary Schrebe (Shrub31) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 10:08 pm:

Deb, your right about the colors. In the late 60's, 70's, & 80's one could count on the leaves being at their peak (especially around Marquette)at the end of that last week in September. But in the last few years it seems like the peak has been pushed into the first or even the second week of October most of the time. The problem for me coming up so late this year is that one always risks having a good snow come through. This can be a problem because I camp with a close group of friends usually in the middle of nowhere.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 10:16 pm:

LOL about the snow. And you're right, you just never know UP there. I've already seen it snow on the 4th of July and on Labor Day. Good luck with the camping. Here's hoping you don't need it.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 11:07 pm:

Welcome to our new Pasty cammers, Cindy from downunder, & Gary.

Gary, my son is a current MTU student. I asked him about the color UP there this weekend, and he said that he preferred it last week, actually, when there was more green (which is a color, too) along with the reds, oranges, and yellows. :-) I am with my sons. My husband likes it farther gone, so I guess different strokes for different folks.

From others, FYI, MTU Family Weekend last year was the equivalent of next weekend on the calendar, I think. Anyway, there was a big winter storm, complete with Winter Storm Warning, for the drive up there for many. One parent I know of spun his truck out on a bridge north of Gaylord, I think it was. Another family I know of spun their car out across traffic near Marquette. Both spinouts were due to white out conditions on the way up to Houghton during that storm. Thank heavens no one was injured in either event. The snow melted fairly quickly, once the sun came out, though. So you never know what you're going to run into when you go up there in October, as you probably know.

By Gary Schrebe (Shrub31) on Sunday, September 30, 2007 - 11:15 pm:

Deb, I have so many memories of the Copper Country and may very well take off and explore some of it on my own this year. It's probably been about 15 years since getting even to Houghton. Most of our camping over the years has been in the triangle of land between Marquette, Big Bay, and Lanse. Some of you may be familiar with the Big Bay area and the overall history of that area. Of course the Silver Lake Basin, Yellow Dog River (and plains), and the highest point in Michigan just inside of the Baraga County line plays a big role in all of this. Anyway, the Keweenaw is drawing me this year.
