Hey folks,

There is another animal shelter challenge, which will be awarded to the group which has the most votes in all of 2010. Of course since 'we' were winners last time, we have a lot of votes already in pocket and are currently at 4th:

All groups, including previous 2010 Grand Prize winners, will be eligible for the "2010 Challenge Champion" $10,000 prize. This additional prize is to be awarded to the group with the most votes from all three Challenges in 2010. As of August 2010, the groups in the lead for this prize were:*

A good Friday October 1st to all!

Good Morning! What a gorgeous morning UP there! I really want to share a gorgeous still image that I just took off of Michigan Tech's Ripley webcam:

Ripley Web Cam

Ripley is ablaze in color this morning! But more than that, I love the sky perfectly reflected on the Portage!

Congratulations, Theresa! You got it! :-)

Well, we didn't get our ambulance barn last month, but we have another chance. We came up this morning in second place, which must mean you're all still voting. If not, please continue to help!

Thanks to all of you, we WILL do this thing!

Good pictures, especially the ones with Autumn colors.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Friday, October 1, 2010 - 06:51 pm:

Thank you, Mary, for your help! I sent you the .jpg from this morning. I wish I had grabbed it a minute or two earlier, when the sunlight was more direct, but the reflection of the sky can still be seen on the Portage, along with the beautiful Mt. Ripley. I also sent you the code I used that returns the errors.

For all, our local TV station here in mid-Michigan said that the UP, from US 2 and north, all along Lake Superior is "At Peak" this weekend! It's too bad that Mich Tech's Family Weekend is next weekend instead of this one. (Unfortunately, we will not be able to go, but hopefully sometime we will be able to get UP there during color season.)

Uncle Chuck & Marty: you all picked the best time to go up there. Our oldest son is headed up there tomorrow, to help recruit for his company at Tech's Career Fair through Tues, so he will be able enjoy the spectacular color this year, if he can get away from meetings. And he will get to see his youngest brother, a Tech freshman, while he is up there.

Have a great weekend! I hope the weather holds for you all!

Gorgeous pictures! Those northern lights are so beautiful! My son's former girlfriend is living in Alaska and we get to see pictures of the Northern lights all the time. They're really something when you live in Alaska!
