I've noticed that the need for wearing my sunglasses has increased quite a bit lately here in the Keweenaw and that's a good thing. More sunshine signals the impending cessation of a number of things: freezing temperatures, shoveling snow, being stuck inside, to name a few. But it also symbolizes beginnings, as illustrated here by Jamie Harter. The ground is becoming visible once more, the rivers are slowly emerging from the mounds of snow and water is running over Superior's rocky shores again, as the snow melts and rushes on it's way to the Big Lake. It's time to start thinking about getting out there to begin the 2008 agate hunting season!

Are we ready, or what!

Ice...on the rocks, please. Shaken...not stirred.

Rocks peeking through is a nice thing. A little later, when you start to turn green, I hope to come up. I like the warmer winters of Missouri, but I miss Lake Superior.

Those are beautiful pictures, this morning, Jamie Harter and Mary! Thank you very much! I love those rocks! I think I will change my desktop picture (from green grass and tulips) to the last one. Ok, Jonesy, you are sharp this morning, LOL. Yes, Mary & Mrbill, we are all more than ready for warmer temperatures, melting snow, and the spring that may be just around the corner! We are certainly appreciate the extra daylight hour in the evening, even if it means that we are still tired from the Spring Forward last weekend! :-)

I'm lovin it!

By Brooke (Lovethekeweenaw) on Friday, March 14, 2008 - 08:15 am:

Rocks in the water are the best, you can see all their colors. And due to some thaw I can see parts of my driveway!

Lovely, it gives you hope. I love spring!!!

Kay, you must find agates this summer.

I thought the UP was overcast (after California), but I have lived in
downstate West Michigan now for quite while and we have
stretches of weeks on end of 0-15% possible sunshine. Once the
sun coming out made the front page of the Grand Rapids Press (43
straight days of 0%). Does anyone know how cloudy is the UP?

By Daveofmohawk (Daveofmohawk) on Friday, March 14, 2008 - 09:35 am:

Right at the moment it's 33 degrees and snowing heavily in Mohawk; don't see any sunshine.

Good news for the U.P.

The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers says Lake Superior water levels last month were eight inches higher than they were in February of last year.

We were hunting agets at Keystone Bay and our grandson was so warm it was really hot that day and he went swimming and Jim Rook came along with a group of people and he told Cary you belong to a elite group of people not many people can say they went swimming in Keystone Bay in Michigan. One of the first places we go when we get to Copper Harbor is the Loon to talk to Jim and Laurel. We really miss those talks with him but still stop in to see Laurel.

Charlie, again I must commend you on this day in history. What a great addition. Would never have known there was an Einstein/UP connection.

By maija in Commerce Township (Maija) on Friday, March 14, 2008 - 02:06 pm:

I agree. I knew about Hemingway and of course Henry Ford, and a few others, but Einstein! He must have gone UP to charge his batteries!

I have a picture of my son at age 2 standing in water at the old lake shore now he is 14 the pic with the running water reminded me of that . The dry rock reminds me of the ones in my g uncles sauna out by big traverse great pics

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Friday, March 14, 2008 - 08:08 pm:

We unfortunitley won't be able to make it UP this summer for agates; good news for other PastyCammers as there should be quite a few for the picking!! ;-)

By kosk in Toronto (Koskintoronto) on Friday, March 14, 2008 - 08:52 pm:

So sorry to hear that Capt.
