We've featured this Traprock River Township dam and falls before on the Pasty Cam, once in July, 2007 and as a Shoebox Memory back in August, 2004. But I think this is the first time when it's surrounded by white. Robert Petersen snapped both the 2007 and today's shot of this beautiful scene. He must have a soft spot for the sights and sounds here and thank goodness for that, otherwise we might have never gotten to see both summer and winter sides of it.

My dad loved to fish that river. He caught more than his share of fish in it, that's for sure.

Remembering him today!!!

I had the summer scene as a background for a year as we had our Catholic Boy Rangers picnics there every year while growing up in the 40's. In the spring we would bycicle out there and catch suckers from the bridge where this picture was taken.

Have to say this today....we have no snow here in Monroe county, Mi.

Deb, this morning's Mass is for your Dad.

We were scheduled to ship hundreds of pasties today from Pasty Central in Calumet. Rarely does FedEx ever cancel any pickup during the holiday season, but that is what has happened today. If you had a pasty shipment scheduled for today, it will automatically be rescheduled for next Monday (12/14)unless we hear from you otherwise. All who ordered will be receiving an email notice about this change as well.

By the way, a more expeditious way to deliver pasties this time of year is by email. You can immediately purchase an engraved quality certificate and download the PDF to email to your favorite Pasty Lover.

Wow...what do you guys do with all the pasties that were baked for shipment today?? That's got to be quite a glut on the pasty market!

around 18 inches of snow in my yard from the storm. Finally looks like the Copeer Country in Wisconsin.

Beautiful picture!

The picture is gorgeous....

In Baraga...I shoveled my drive this morning/afternoon, and had to do it a second time when I was done with the first...filled right back in, and it's full again!

Winter has definitely arrived! Even here in the Banana Belt...(It lost that title today!)

Thanks, Mickey! I didn't even know that. I wonder if my mom did. Neither of us said anything about the anniversary this morning. I didn't want to talk about it and I know she didn't. We talked enough about it last week.
