We're heading quickly to the end of the month and the end of fall, too, but there are still a few trees with leaves hanging on. Joe Kirkish has a couple of good examples of the color we have left with a few burnt orange, but mostly yellow leaves. I'm not certain of the variety of tree, but there are a few that hold onto their leaves a little longer than the rest. Kind of nice that it happens that way, so we gradually go from green, to full color, to faded colors and eventually to the gray before winter sets in.

In case you missed yesterday's Shoebox Memory (that appeared a little late in the day), there is also a musical Pasty Cameo to start the new week.

It is this time of year that I am homesick for the UP. Thanks, Joe for sharing so your UP friend can at least be home in spirit! Have a wonderful day everyone!

Those leaves in the second photo look like they just don't want to see the season end.:( There's just no state as pretty as Michigan in the Autumn! We didn't live there long but we vacationed there over a period of 10 years....always in the Fall. Beautiful!

I see two eyes staring out of the leaf just above center in the second photo, nice catch of a wood piskie I'd say, despite its camo. Great photo Mr. K.

I was just there and wish I was still. I hate leaving the U.P. ANY time of year. Sigh...

Looks like the tree in the first picture is the guardian of the lake.

I'm thinking those leaves will be gone by tomorrow night:

The National Weather Service in Marquette has issued a high wind

little Tuesday night... winds will increase again Wednesday.

* Southwest wind gusts may reach 50 to 60 mph at times Tuesday
afternoon and Wednesday. Sustained winds around 40 mph are

Already the Lake Freighters are heading for cover and going on hook asap. Sounds like some in south entry, and possibly the jackson in Paquaming, so if get your camera out those down that way, it could be interestig tomorrow with all the boats on hook.

My son who works on one of the boats was on Lake Erie 2-3 weeks ago. Took a picture of the Anemometer(SP). 51 knots steady and gusts to 96 knots. While they were still at the dock one of the bumper tires cought fire from the friction of the boat working. Mary might be able to post the wind speed picture.

Beautiful Autumn photos!

mary- fall doesn't end until dec. 21.

Mary says: That's only on the calendar...tell us Yoopers that again when it's not yet Dec. 21st and we have snow on the ground. Fall ends here UP North whenever Mother Nature decides to cover us in the white stuff...not when the calendar tells us it's so. :->

Batten down the hatches. This is being billed as one of the worst Great Lakes storms of the past 100 years.

The low pressure center is the 2nd lowest in 100 years.


The Edmund Fitzgerald storm of 1975 is only ranked number 5 on the NOAA list. I remember that day all too well. I lived above the bakery on Sheldon in Houghton. We could walk out of our kitchen window onto the roof of the old Library bar. The bakery chimney came crashing through the ceiling that day. And we were the lucky ones.
