    Winter 2021-2022 in the U.P.

    I remember it well. November 10, 1975 terrible November storm. Now this weekend upper Midwest is due for another nasty storm. Some areas have blizzard warnings.

    Winter storm warning is up for all of the U.P. this Sunday and Monday. Over 10 inches of snow forecast. This will be our first real winter storm of the year as snowfall so far as only amounted to a few inches.

    Yep, today I bought my first snowblower in my entire life. Its an EGO cordless electric 2 stage snowblower with the monster 10Ah battery. I don't really need this beast as I have a snowplower for my driveway and my yooper scooper works pretty well for my path. However, if something happens to my snowplower like covid I will be up shit's creek. I'm just too old to tackle my driveway with my yooper scooper. These Ego 2 stage beasts are hard to find. I was waiting since August for it and it just came in yesterday. Wish me luck with it.

    Also wish me luck on my two $500 free bets tomorrow. I took the spread on the Cardinals and also on the Vikings.


    ...WINTER STORM WARNING NOW IN EFFECT FROM 7 AM THIS MORNING TO 7 PM EST MONDAY...

    WHAT...Heavy snow expected. Total snow accumulations of 9 to 16 inches. Southeast winds gusting up to 35 mph this afternoon, and north to northwest winds gusting to 35 to 45 mph late tonight and Monday morning.

    ADDITIONAL DETAILS...The moderate to heavy snow will transition to lake effect snow showers Monday afternoon.

    Center of Hawaii's big island is expecting a foot of snow today.

    Of course the center of that Island is the peak of Mauna Kea at 13,803 feet. While it's not uncommon for there to be snow at the peak, one foot in one drop is a lot. It was a very interesting experience to drive from sea level (85 degrees F) to the summit (20 degrees F with snow). Quite the change in climate over a short period of time! It only takes about 30 minutes to drive to the 10,000 foot level where they make you stop for two hours to acclimate to the altitude and another 20 minutes to reach the summit (4 wheel drive, low ratio only) where one of our party did experience altitude sickness.

    The reason we were there was to tour the massive telescopes and then watch the sun set from the summit.

    Maui has two of the top ten wettest places on Earth -- and yet has constant water shortages. There's a $500 fine for washing your car in some areas. Of course, the rain is also at high altitude. I was never tempted to go up for the bike ride down.

    But I hope you still drove up and down. The crater of Haleakala is one of the most beautiful sights I have ever seen.

    We also did the "forbidden" drive around the North shore of Maui and found out that it is forbidden for good reason!

    Last hijack post -- I promise.

    When you rent a car on Maui, there is a clause in the contract stating that you agree not to drive the road on the North shore. That's why I called it the "forbidden" drive. We did it anyway and found out why. It's a one lane dirt road on a high cliff above the ocean with no guard rail and traffic in both directions. There are occasional places wide enough for cars to pass, if everyone pays attention, but not everyone does. Very stressful! .
