    February 23-25th Winter Storm

    Two neighbors out blowing snow. Heck with it. I am going to wait until the wind goes down tomorrow. They can stick it where I work. I will be in when I am in. Notice my one furnace vent getting covered. Luckily I have a window over it and was able to stick a shovel out the window to get it cleared. Keep going to get around making the pipe higher. I caught some kind of bug. Very weak and tired today don't really want to climb the bank of snow to get back there.

    2018-2019 LES Season

    Marquette NWS reported up to 36 inches of snow from the Porkies to Twin Lakes. My parent's live out in Twin Lakes and can confirm this. Healthy convergance off of the increasing shirking open water on the big lake. Only about 5 inches here in Hancock. The convergence spread over to Baraga/L'anse where they reported a foot and they are right on the lake shore. I was wondering why they closed school there when there wasn't even any advisory out at the time of the cancellation.

    Let's Talk Winter!!

    Snowing very heavy here in Hancock. I can't hardly see the house down the street from me. Luckily, I went in earlier to work so I could get the hell out of there before the storm hit. Every nut and their uncle is in town for Tech winter carnival so there is a lot more traffic and more people to get me in a jam.

    2018-2019 LES Season

    Been getting 2-3 inches per day. The flakes are real small but the snow is heavy when the snow scoop gets full of it. It is like scooping corn starch. The main highway is like a Hockey rink. Probably could skate on it. One false move driving you are in Dire Straits. Luckily, not very many people driving around you have to watch out for.

    You got that right. Boring here too in the Keweenaw. Just low clouds, no wind, no snow. Just have the few inches on the ground from earlier lake effect event.

    A big yawn pattern here in the Keweenaw. Don't even have any wind. Only had dusting of Lake effect the last few days after having a melt with the warmer temps and rain Saturday.

    Still just getting little tiny flakes here in Hancock. No wind at all by just looking at the tree branches around my house. Guess it is the calm before the storm.
