It's snowing again this morning in the Keweenaw, but over the weekend we experienced some warmer temperatures and rain. Unusual for December around these parts, so once again we had a bit of a thaw going on. But it didn't last long, as this IS the U.P. and we always get more snow.

One of our newcomers, who debuted with a photo last week, was Emma Stout and she's back here today with photos that reflect our conditions here UP North over the weekend.

Her first shot was taken Friday evening as the sun was going down and reflecting on the snowy ice near their home. You can see that it is somewhat melted and looks like it could be mushy.

Emma took the second photo on Saturday, after the rains came and turned it into dreary day. The ice is still there, but the rainwater formed puddles all over the surface.

Makes for some pretty pictures, but not good for winter play outdoors. By the way, Emma is only 11 years old and I have to say, has a pretty good eye for photography already. Thanks for sharing your photos with us all, Emma!

Beautiful photos, Emma, thanks!
Mary, I'm glad you're getting more snow this morning...I know that snow in winter is as important UP there as jumping in the Big Lake in summertime.;) Enjoy!

Beautiful photos Emma. The first one is especially peaceful. Keep up the good work!

You have a good eye for photo composition, Emma! What a talent!! Thank you for sharing it. In a side note, God and I have been having quite a discussion about the lack of the white stuff down here in the Loper. Maybe if I shut up and quit making the temperature rise from the hot air?

Speaking of weather and ice, we had a pretty terrific storm pass thru parts of the Ohio Valley about midday, lots of rain, thunder and lightning, and pea-size hail that is still laying around in my yard under trees! Looked like snow coming down. Haven't seen anything like that since living in WY in the summer of 1980!
