    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.

    Looking like ice on the big Lake. Pretty soon the fetch will drop enough to shut the lake snow machine down. Generated from my Apple iPad using tools.rackonly.com

    Blowed a solid foot out of the drive and 5 inches just an hour ago. Flakes have got smaller due to the colder air causing visibility problems.

    I have heard thunder during March snowstorms here in Keweenaw, but they were synoptic snows not pure LES.
