Mary Drew at Pasty Central (Mdrew) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 05:18 am:

When I saw these photos in Donna MacIntosh's album, my first thought was to use one of them for the end of the month, but then I spotted the small rainbow and it's reflection in the water, and it's exactly how it looks this morning. Neither Donna or myself are quite sure why this little rainbow was present in the air in the first place, as it wasn't raining. But what a neat phenomenon to capture with the sunrise over Keweenaw Bay.

Sidenote: Our photographer today, is none other than Pasty Cam's main cheerleader for the Copper Country Humane Society contest that ended yesterday. Donna began posting the link each day on the Cam Notes page earlier in the year. Without that daily reminder, some of us may not have remembered to vote every day. Thanks for your hard work keeping us on our toes, Donna! We are all looking forward to the results when they come out on Wednesday.

Those are both beautiful, peaceful scenes. It would be heaven to start each morning with a view like that. Great pictures, Donna. I can't wait to hear the winning results on Wednesday, for Copper Country, of course.

By Donna (Donna) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 05:58 am:

Lake Superior is one of the most beautiful, sacred places on this planet!

And thanks Mary...but CCHS had a lot of cheerleaders. The local radio station's Todd VanDyke was the main guy...his broadcasting everyday...was the real cheerleader...had he not been reminding everyone, everyday....I'd have not had mine! :D

Seriously...thanks to EVERYONE...the fever was caught big time...and so many folks around the USA and outside of it voted and voted...it really was phenomenal!

The POWER OF THE PASTY, however, really stood out! Congrats TEAM!

THANK YOU, Donna, for being our cheerleader and inspiring us to vote daily for this very, very worthy cause! We are so very proud of you!!!!

Wouldn't you know that Donna would find a way to reward all the Pasty Site voters with a SunDog! Lovely photo.

Here's an explanation site for the phenom.

By Deb L. (Lakegirl) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 08:13 am:

Awesome pictures and thanks Donna for posting everyday, I would have forgot to vote otherwise. It was a priveledge for me to help out. I'm anxiously awaiting Wednesday for the results. Have a great everyone!!

For a minute I thought I missed the rest of the month and skipped right to the 30th. Great photos!!!

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 08:18 am:

I gather we can't vote today?

By Laure (O2bindaup) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 08:35 am:

Donna...I'm trying to get a group of people together on Thursday April 29th at the Loading Zone @ 6, not sure of your schedule, but if you don't have any plans, hope you can make it !!!

By Rowdy (Roudymi) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 08:42 am:

I believe I'm experiencing a post vote depression even though I think we won. Anyone else?

By Laure (O2bindaup) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 08:54 am:

Voting is over, it ended Sunday night... I think "WE" won too !!!!!

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 09:05 am:

Thanks, Richard (Notroll) for the explanation of the "Sundogs". They are definitely awesome phenoms. Have seen them on Sharon Smith's Copper Harbor cam on occasion.

The 60s was a great time for me when i lived in Tamarack mills. With my aunt Lu-LU Bell.

The Shelter Challenge may be over, but you can still click each day to give bowls of food to the Animal Rescue Site's charity partners. The sponsors of the site give the equivalent of six tenths of a bowl of food for each click, and with the number of people who've been voting for CCHS, that adds up to a lot of food! Also, there will be more Shelter Challenges, I'm sure. So keep clicking!

Beautiful dawns.

By DEAN SCHWARTZ SR. (Lulu) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 04:02 pm:

Such beautiful pictures. I know it's only April and it has s***ed . (don't want to say it ) in April. I want to put the total s**w fall on my replica Keweenaw s**w thermometer. What are the chances ?

By Shawn Wyant (Sawyant) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 05:46 pm:

This was on the Shelter Challenge website.

When is the next Shelter+ Challenge?

Are you ready for the next Animal Rescue Site $100,000 Shelter+ Challenge - together with Petfinder.com? It begins on Monday, May 17th. More details to be announced soon!

By Lisa R. (Sisugirl) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 06:01 pm:

Lovely photos today. Thanks Donna -- and thanks for being our CCHS cheerleader!

By Anita Marsy-Bosley (Anitamb) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 08:46 pm:

Yes Rowdy, I feel that way too! I want to know if we won!!!

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Monday, April 19, 2010 - 10:34 pm:

I, too, thought it was the end of the month. :o) We have been clicking to feed the animals for quite a while, a year or more? They'll send you a daily reminder if you click on it.

By MarilynnB (Marilynnb) on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 - 08:19 am:

We're so glad the shelter won! We're from waaaaay downstate
near Detroit, but we support the CCHS and voted every day.

By Deb S. (Usedtobeayooper) on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 - 08:34 am:

I thought the winner wouldn't be announced until Wednesday?
