    Haven't given an update on our winter for awhile. I'm sure 21forme is missing the tidbits. Anyway, we are at the halfway point in winter. No really big storms yet. Most snow so far has been around 10 to 12 inches in a dumping. It has been kind of windy so getting killed by lake effect snow of 2 or 3 inches each day. The wind keeps the big lake from freezing. On Wed -41 wind chills were forecast. Today called to get my roof shoveled.

    Anyway, its time for the good folks on the east coast to be up to their asses in snow for a change. Norm, winter storm Kenan is coming, make sure you buy bread and milk.

    Probably not too bad here. It's been snowing for hours and there is no snow on the streets or sidewalks. I like snow that doesn't land. Some will accumulate overnight and tomorrow; but they'll spend the night and Saturday dumping it into the rivers. The building will probably be creaking all night as it bends with the 45 mph winds. Give the new mayor something to do. Now Long Island will probably be bad. Heavy snow and hurricane winds.

    This weekend I spend some time watching winter storm Kenan on the weather channel. I must admit I enjoy watching a good winter storm especially the live shots. This one poor guy got pulled out by a wrecker only to drive a couple of feet and get stuck again. Hell, the guy had 4 wheel drive. Learn how to drive in snow.

    Yeah, we don't ever make the national news when it snows. The weather channel reporters don't show up to cover our weather. In fact we haven't even had a decent snow storm this year. However, we still have snow banks that are probably higher than those out east from their big storm.

    Here is just a typical January day in the Keweenaw in the U.P.

    What now! The groundhog has died just a couple of days ago, however don't worry the sun always comes out on groundhog's day where I live and thus sees his shadow. This year was no different. The sun was out for at least awhile and now lake effect snow is starting up again. 12 more weeks of winter for us.

    I took a few minutes off from chatting with those friendly people who call me every five minutes to steal my credit card -- to look out the window. Very little snow. There was a fire boat in the river next to the UN spraying water in every direction. Then, the water plumes turned bright blue. This was followed by a string of police boats. No idea what was going on. Walked to the grocer’s and saw police guiding people away from the UN. Then remembered the Security Council is in session. In the last three months I’ve seen two Coast Guard cutters out there. Never seen that before.

    He saw his shadow because there were a bunch of television cameras and their spotlights all over him.

    Was the river on fire? I thought that only happened in Cleveland.
