Let's start a new rule for the Early Bird... If the Pasty Cam picture is not posted by 8am, the first Cammie to find their way to the What'sUP page and post a note will receive the prestigious award.

Good Morning!!

Why do I have the feeling the high winds yesterday knocked something out in PastyCam land?? Hence, the reason for a later-than-usual posting this morning....
First Post
We have a winner...

You could be right, Capt Paul. I think high winds were more the rule than the exception, all over Michigan, yesterday & last night. The winds here in the greater Midland area were wicked, with gusts to about 40 mph. Consumers Power worked all evening trying to restore power here in mid-Michigan. NOAA was predicting wind gusts to 50 mph in Houghton & 60 mph in Copper Harbor. Ouch! That's getting a little too close to hurricane force winds, for me. Wicked winds & huge waves in the Great Lakes yesterday & last night.

Maybe we can post our own picture of the UP and call it new post.. and the Capt. gets the early bird :)

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 05:19 pm:

Winds have 2 b a minimum of 75 mph b 4 it becomes a hurricane, so 60 mph is just considered stormy.

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 05:42 pm:

Well, maybe I'll post a pic then....

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 05:45 pm:

Ok then; until Charlie "officially" posts a pic here, I'll post one of mine from our trip in August, 2009 just to appease the masses. This is at Presque Isle in Marquette, looking west from the northern most pointe.

my picture

That is a gorgeous picture, thank you, Capt Paul! I agree, Theresa, Capt Paul should get the Early Bird for today! :-)

Technically, winds of 60 mph are still of Tropical Storm strength, which is much higher than a Tropical Depression, which is 44 or less mph. 60 mph winds are well above gale strength. I saw somewhere, they were predicting waves of at least 15 to 20 feet on Mother Superior, for yesterday, but I have not heard what they got up to.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 06:32 pm:

That is a scenic picture.

By Thomas Baird (Thomas) on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 08:18 pm:

Wonderful Memory Lane pictures, especially the Autumn ones + the apples.

By kay Moore (Mskatie) on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 08:58 pm:

Good job, Capt. Paul Love you shot!

By a m hill (Lvcamnotes) on Tuesday, September 29, 2009 - 09:34 pm:

not sure i understand. i'm just guessing:
if you have a disaster due to high winds as
yesterday or today -- system is down -- how
can anything be posted until the system is up?

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 - 07:24 am:

Loved the decade in review today, as usual!

Nice picture, Capt. Paul!

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Wednesday, September 30, 2009 - 01:04 pm:

Love the photo of the well, but.....am I seeing a bear or a doggie to the left and in back of that well? Sure looks like it with these old eyes. BTW, I've always known that Michigan has some unusual stones/pebbles along its beaches (ie: Petosky stone), but I didn't know there were stone/pebbles with 'faces' on 'em. :)
