Welcome to new Pasty Cam sponsor Newton Distributing in Iron Mountain. Through the years our sponsors have made it possible to keep this feature 'on the air'.

Good Morning, Everyone on this rainy, and soon to be stormy (as in thunderstorms) Friday! TGIF! We do need the rain, though, down here in Troll Land.

I suppose most of you have heard about the fire near Grayling that has closed down parts of I-75, both north & south, since last night. (The story has been picked up by cable news channels now.) The rain will hopefully extinguish it, as they have it contained now, but not before it damaged or destroyed a number of homes in the area.

Dan Urbanski’s eye for nature’s artistic beauty is truly a gift.

I had to study the “Double Vision” photo for a moment before I knew what I was looking at… great shot.

Good morning, all. Marianne, how did the fire start...was it a forest fire? We don't have TV, so didn't hear about it down our way. When we lived in Charlevoix, we would get off the interstate at Grayling....I always thought that was such a nice little area. Probably much larger area now. Sorry to hear they had a fire that destroyed homes.

Good morning, though the only thing good about it is we woke up. It's soooo cold outside and it's the end of April. And we might get some of that four letter word. YUCK!!!

Lorelei, we haven't heard from you in a while, but I see one of your pictures is on the cameo this morning. Good going.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, April 25, 2008 - 01:34 pm:

They don't have an official cause yet for the fire near Grayling, but our local news says that they think it started from a spark from a train car on a track, perhaps?

Hi Deb,
Been so busy lately. I have been checking in but not posting. I finally have my home computer hooked up again. Drop me a note to let me know how you all are doing.

Speaking of the cameo, it is hard to believe my baby boy is going to be 20. I remember that day like it was yesterday.

Had 0.1" of rain this afternoon in Cornell. Went out for a walk this evening and wouldn't you know, it started to rain again. :o) First lightning and thunder for the year tonight. Pussy-willows are out across the road from here. Saw a robin about a week ago, singing away on top of a fence post.
