Well, they're not the Golden Arches, just double arches. My exploring buddy Sara felt somehow compelled to pull the snow on them down on her. I don't know why. Exuberance of youth, I guess. Frightening to think she works for me.

By Karen P, MN on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 01:50 pm:

I would not have been able to resist the temptation either. I have knocked the snow off many branches. I also jump in puddles. What fun!

By Mike,MI on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 02:44 pm:

I would never be the one to point out the 10th and Tuesday thing.
First day Murphy's Law sort of thing, eh.

A word of caution: Fiberglass ski poles get extremely brittle in sub-zero temps. Several years ago I lost a beautiful Excel Arctic XC pole
(with mountaineering baskets) knocking the snow
off arches over the trail onto the guy behind me on a downhill run. Had to ski 6 miles back to the truck with one pole and the trunk of a maple sapling... but yeah, it was worth it.

I'd rather see those double arches than golden arches anyday.

By Toivo from Toivola on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 03:51 pm:

Holy cow, Mike. Good thing you picked up on that.


Toivo from Toivola on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 03:55 pm:

Wah! I just noticed it says Sara CAN resist the temptation! Pleeease let me know if anything else is broke.

Charlie, come back!

By Sherry in FL on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 04:09 pm:

Ah Tovio you will be OK. Just get out of the cold and settle down with some type of warm drink.

By Proud Yooper - MI on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 04:11 pm:

Toivo, I noticed the "Sara can" thing, but thought it was your humor that I was looking for.

By FC MI on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 04:13 pm:

Sherry in FL - Tovio? I like it!

By Sherry, OK on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 04:45 pm:

I was wondering just how much snow the Houghton/Hancock area has had this year.

By John. MI on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 06:05 pm:

Sherry, OK
The snowfall totals are usually pretty current on this site:

By Melissa, Lansing, MI on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 06:41 pm:

Sherry, johndee.com also has snowfall total information. Great forecasts too!

Hey Toivo, you're doing a great job. We all do crazy things on Mondays!

I love the snow pics today. I've been pining away for snow lately, guess I'll have to make do with the inch that fell here today.

Hey Sandy at Grandma's, Who needs Garth? He is just slightly overrated. Besides, we have Alex and Charlie!!!


By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 08:49 pm:

Man, Pegg! I guess I have to pay you 10% from my next concert? ROFL!

By Alex Tiensivu, Georgia on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 08:53 pm:

Well... The Bridge Cam looks like a rug! LOL. I hope Toivo doesn't have to climb anything tall on a cold night to turn it back on! ROFL.

By the way, Pegg, I don't think too many people know that A.J. Harrison and I are one in the same person! That's my stage name, because no one can say Tiensivu! HEY! Who knows what Tiensivu means? (I do).

By Fran,Ga. on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 09:24 pm:

Alex,what does it mean and how is it pronounced?I could attempt it but I would probably be wrong!

By Alex Roadside, Georgia on Monday, February 10, 2003 - 11:51 pm:

Tiensivu = Roadside. A funny story of my old partner in music and I. We wanted to use the Engish meanings of our names, (his is Matarazzo). Somehow, after thinking about it, we didn't think we'd go to far in music as "The Roadside Mattress" We STILL laugh about that today!

By FC MI on Tuesday, February 11, 2003 - 12:01 am:

Thanks Pegg for Alex's web-site. Alex, you are very talented. We are still waiting to find out what Tiensivu means. It is Finnish, isn't it? Am I correct in that the pronounciation is like Tee en see voo? Did I slaughter it?

By FC MI on Tuesday, February 11, 2003 - 12:05 am:

Alex, Guess my posting is late....I see it means "roadside."

By Martha K., Pinckney, MI on Tuesday, February 11, 2003 - 12:38 am:

Alex, you were just born a few years too late. A band named "The Roadside Mattress" would have been a natural in the 1960s when we camped out in VW buses!

By Alex Tiensivu on Tuesday, February 11, 2003 - 12:08 pm:

HAHAHA! This was 1971, so maybe just a TAD too late! If you had seen the mail over the years, the strangest would probably be the one to Mr. and Mrs. Tennishoe. (I'm NOT joking). Tiensivu has been a conversation piece ALL my life!

By Sherry, OK on Tuesday, February 11, 2003 - 03:20 pm:

Thanks for the info and websites for snowfall info. I appreciate it.

By Fran on Tuesday, February 11, 2003 - 09:33 pm:

Alex,I have heard worse names for groups than The Roadside Mattress. Sure had a laugh at you your story! You were right,I don't think the name would do much for you all.
