On the way in to Mohawk this afternoon, Jonathan and I stopped by the Snow Thermometer and snapped a few shots. We didn't stay long, because visibility was bad, and we didn't want any entanglements, such as the logging truck coming up the hill on US-41.

Did you know that Pasty Central actually started with pictures of the Snow Thermometer? Back in '95, almost a year before we registered the domain name "", we kept a page showing the snow depth. Later the pasties came along. If your computer has Real Audio, you can hear the story of how this project had its beginnings, on a previous "Eye of the Pasty Cam"

Daily snow depth reports have resumed over on the Snow Thermometer page, along with a convenient display of temps around the U.P.

We enjoy seeing all your pictures on the pasty

cam, I lived in Calumet-Laurium in 1978-79 and I

will never forget that winter! Sometimes we miss

the U.P. but like my husband always says,you don't

have to shovel the rain!! Take care from the

Evergreen State.

At times I truly miss the fun we had in all that snow--it is glorious when you are young. Then something happens that reminds me that I am no longer that young, and the only way I could survive the winters there would be to be wealthy enough to have someone else remove the snow. I think from now on I will stick to a summer visit every year!

I remember the record snowfall of 78-79 very well. I was home on vacation from the navy and just could not wait to see the snow once again. Needless to say it snowed the day I got there and didn't stop for weeks after I left. I honestly think the U.P. is gods' country but for me I will limit my visits to the summer.
