    Winter 2018-19 Grade Thread

    Since I base my grade on northern Michigan and the UP.... I give it a B+. December dropped it 1 full grade.

    I told them to name the two guys who helped... they didn't even ask if we wanted to be named, the mine EMS said we would be "the 2 snowmobilers". The only part that's a bit exaggerated was the part where it said I collapsed.... the rest was pretty spot on.

    Nah... I'm not really embarrassed. I knew I'd catch some flak though. It happened, I figured people would be interested to hear about it. Especially in a weather community since it's very weather centric.

    It was actually mild when we set off. I knew the temp was going to drop, but didn't anticipate the drifting at that level. The snowflakes break up and traction is tough... a 137 with 1.25 lugs wasn't going to do the job. If I only had snowshoes!

    Myself and one other were rescued Sunday night in the Huron mountains. There will be a news story on the situation soon. Put it this way.... 60 mph winds, 2 stuck snowmobiles and 15 miles from anything except the Eagle Mine. Snow was 6 feet deep with 10 foot drifts. We both had hypothermia.... I started accepting we were going to freeze to death. Thanks to Allen and Ryan from the Eagle Mining company for saving our asses.

    January 24 - 31 Cold Blast

    This morning was my second coldest reading of the winter. Hit -14.6 last week Monday, only hit -14.5 today. Weird.

    This cold outbreak is going to really crap up LES from here on out... Lake temps should have plummeted.

    The lake really ruins low temps.... but that LES makes up for it. I'm in Baldwin right now at a pizza joint.... about to gear up for the 75 mile ride to the truck on my sled. I'm sick in the head. Only -2F here. -12 at my house right now in Howell.

    Hybrid Clipper Event 1/27-1/29

    Weak sauce. Radar is too broken up. I don't think we'll even see 3 inches total... I don't see warning criteria snow anywhere in Michigan outside of lake enhanced communities.
