Barb Bouwkamp took advantage of the beautiful sunshine we had last week and walked around Laurium with her camera, snapping pictures of some of the large homes there in town. Such interesting architecture, with the turrets making the homes look more like whimsical castles all covered in snow.

It always amazes me how the snow can hang on to the smallest ledge or drape over the roof of a porch and not just fall right off. Barb captured much of that type of snow formations with her shots here today, along with a good look at some of the larger homes that I'm guessing were once owned by the mining officials back in the day. Wouldn't it be fun to tour them all on the inside, too?

Beautiful architecture! And yes, Mary, I'd really love to tour all of them ~ especially the hidden nooks and crannies of the 3rd floors.
Thanks for taking us along on your walk, Barb.

the snow is pretty against the blue skies

By Kathyrn Laughlin (Kathyl) on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 - 01:16 pm:

Quite pretty. Also, interesting in light of how the newspeople on the East Coast were wigging out over the prospect of 3 feet of snow. Granted, if it all fell in a single storm, you'd have to notice, but it looks in these pictures like yoopers can deal with that depth.

Cozy looking homes!

Hey Kathy L, you're right! I'm in Northeast Connecticut where they predicted 18 to 30" from this blizzard. An honest 19" here, more closer to Boston, less west of Hartford. These folks have NO idea of what a Yooper winter is (I have three of those under my belt, thankfully!)The media here goes into panic mode whenever 3" falls. But then, the general public in this neck of the woods have no idea how to properly drive in the stuff, so, maybe that's a blessing in disguise. But it was actually good to get a little visit from Heikke Lunta. Miss the U.P.!

Thanks for sharing a little bit of home. I grew up in Calumet and I visit this site everyday. The snow is beautiful in its'own way, although I do prefer to see it from afar. Larium sure has some big beautiful old homes.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 - 07:52 pm:

As soon as I pulled up the page, I knew this had
to be Laurium. I've seen these houses many times.
Love those big old houses up there. Nice
pictures, Barb!

By eugenia r. thompson (Ert) on Tuesday, January 27, 2015 - 08:10 pm:

Lovely combination, Barb -- historic houses and
snow. Kids could really get some ideas on how to
decorate gingerbread houses from these, esp. the
frosting part.

By Kathyrn Laughlin (Kathyl) on Wednesday, January 28, 2015 - 08:35 am:

George L, I would've thought Northeast Connecticut would not be a complete stranger to snowfall. I'm in Southeast Michigan, where lake effect snow is a rarity. Some folks, like yours truly, have either lived in snowier places or learned to drive when the winters were really winter, or both. Others are less experienced. Of course, traffic is another hazard here.

I LOVE Laurium! There might be a lot of snow but
Laurium has the most intresting and lovely historical
homes. The pictures today are awesome!

The sand castle house is my cousin Felixs/wifes house on
Willow st Laurium . I love all the houses in the close by area
including our family house in Osceola/Calumet.
