In what year was the Eagle Harbor bouy seen close-up on the Pasty Cam? (Hint: it's not in the Decade Review)

First Post

I just woke up to check a few e-mails and say GOOD MORNING to everyone.

By Phil Hoover (Nmu1) on Monday, September 15, 2008 - 06:35 am:

Good morning!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Monday, September 15, 2008 - 07:17 am:

Good morning! I guesss it's time to go back to work. Where did the weekend go?

By Cindy Pihlaja Russell (Gone2long) on Monday, September 15, 2008 - 08:19 am:

Yeah...where did the weekend go? I even had Friday off and it still zoomed by. No rest for the, weary. :-)

Deb, you ask where did the weekend go? Ours went down the drain. Thanks to the 8 inches of rain we received. Our total is less than some of the nearby areas. It is so flooded in se MI that my grandkids have no school today. This rain was thanks to Tropical storm Lowell and Hurricane Ike. We are much better off than the people who felt the full force of Ike. Keep them in your prayers.

Here in SE MI, Plymouth MI was hit with a tornado, cars and trees were tossed around like toys, roofs blown off etc. etc. The Flint River, the Belle River (near us) and mostly (as usual) the Clinton River, flooded over. Surely others but I haven't heard all yet. People around Mt. Clemens have over 4 feet of water in their basements, some a foot or more on the first floor. Lost their furnaces, appliances, furniture, and other possesions! Roads, bridges, washed out or flooded over. Thousands without power and they say will be for days. And we were all just complaining a few days back how dry and need of rain we are!
Our 70' diameter pond which was completely dried up is now 2/3 back up just overnight!

It was wet and windy here over the weekend but luckily not like that. Soccer was rather unpleasant Saturday.

By Capt. Paul (Eclogite) on Monday, September 15, 2008 - 04:39 pm:

Greetings everyone:

Well, as Mary stated, we are ok. We have no power right now but Nat's Parents do which is where I'm writing this from. We suffered a fair bit of damage, but nothing like your seeing on the news about Galveston and Bolivar Peninsula. Our house developed a small leak during the storm, some of our fences were knocked over, quite a few twigs and branches in our yard, and some shingles off our roof. We actually lucked out because the room that leaked was our library where we house all of our historic books and mining maps of the Keweenaw, but the leak missed everything and only soaked a little patch of carpet.

But, I figured I better post something to let everone know that we're ok, just no power. Obviously, we won't be posting much until get power, but we will be checking PastyCam once in a while and also checking our email ( often so if anyone want's to write, we'd love to hear from you :-)

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Monday, September 15, 2008 - 04:58 pm:

Lets hear it for Capt. Paul and Nat that they are O.K. and everybody else around them seems to be O.K., just without power ;-)

By Michael R. Cooper (Dutchcoop) on Monday, September 15, 2008 - 05:40 pm:

Also glad to hear that Capt. Paul and Nat survived the acute phase of Hurricane Ike -- as an ex-Houstonian, I can tell you that the recovery from such a storm is pretty miserable too.

Has any other sharp-eyed reader noticed that in the 5th decadal picture, Katie Long appears to be the Postmistress of Eagle River? She appears to be sitting on the porch of the building just to the west of the lower bridge.
