  Hey all, we may not have summer this year. The last time I remember having snow like this was when we were kids. Holy crud !!!! I don't think county road 510 is passable any longer. I was up that way a couple days ago and it was one lane for 3/4ths of it.

  41 wasn't even plowed when I was out & about this morning. It didn't get plowed until around 9:30.

  I have another 8" where my house is. Banks are almost 8ft.  Can't raise the bucket any higher. In the upper 20s though. Poor ol' tractor got a workout today and the plows haven't even been on my street yet. Can hardly wait.

I can remember Dad tunneling out to the street when we lived in Ironwood.  Well, we had the Polar Vortex last week that froze our butts off and now we are in a cyclonic bomb that is blowing our shirts off and creating more whiteouts. Jimminie cricket!!  - can't wait to see what next week will bring us.

Thanks for the picture Bonnie.   At least a few Michiganders are getting out these days.  From our vantage point   the news stories and comments from friends make it sound like a winter wonderland.   It’s cold here too, but only have dried grass to look at, no wonderland to shovel, plow or scoop.   We left that tool in the attic .  Will the snow be gone by July?  Will I notice a rise in the lake level?  Stay warm and take care, the potholes are here and moving north!

   Just came in from moving snow with my loader. About 3 hours and still not done!  (Wish I was a kid again.....not). Can't believe how tired I am. What a workout. Mostly the loader, but,still......

   Hope this is the last storm for this area. After 72 years I am finally getting fed up with it. Hope all is well with everyone. Stay warm. Hope the snow is gone by July and the lake don't rise. May have a swimming pool at the commons this year. LOL

both of the houses we lived in UP there had outside doors on the 2nd floor to get out when the snow piled up too high to use the front entrance.  Sounds like people had better start adding those the way the weather is going these days.

I think Jackie posted pics of the 200" plus of snow in Marquette.  I shared the pics with my New England and Southern friends.  NH has received a lot of snow, but not 200" in the lowlands.  My yard has around 3-4'.

I get the motorized wheelchair but I'm going to 'borrow' the basket from that walker.

Jacklyn Hassel (Roper)

Love the photo, Sam! I, for one, still do not use the walker I somehow managed to win?? at our Medicare Birthday party :-) But . . . I do still have the moose that was hung over the front of the walker:-) He lives with me in AZ and reminds me all the time of my Yooper classmates :-)

I almost forgot that you had won one of the 'big' prizes.  What a great time that was!  Class of '65 bingo, UP cookies, pasties that Pat brought back from the UP - - and a great group of classmates!!

Robert Lambert

If you get the motorized one, Karen, no wheelies ! If you go over backwards, we probably won't be able to put you back in it. Lol  What's the basket for ? Medicinal spirits ?!

03/22/19 11:23 PM #1892    


Karen Wright (Lancaster)

the basket is for 'stuff" like hand warmers and maybe a couple of blankets to keep me warm.  If I fall over just pile on my blankets to keep me warm and call 911

  If we can't pick you up, Karen, I'll crank up my tractor. Lol

Boiler Up!    Saying it while I still can this season.   Hoping Michigan State plays equally well during the second half tonight.   Gary Libby, we need you to cheer loudly from the southern part of Indiana when the Boilers play their next game.  Go Boilers!

It’s probably not too soon to let Pat know your plans for the July picnic if you can.  The first boat is in at the Island today so summer is on its way.  See you at The Commons !

Thanks Karen.   Several members of the club TRU Ukes from Ft Wayne attend that event annually. I need more experience before I show up.  There are somewhere north of 135 on the roster for our group.       Thirty two came to play together in April for our monthly session at a Pizza Hut.  Getting to know new people has been a blessing, sore fingers, not so much.   Just having fun!

New people, learning a new skill and having fun doing it.  That's what it's all about, Marilyn.
