It was really cool looking back on the yearly pictures today to see the difference in years as far as the snow goes. That is just so strange.

Beautiful here. Had rain and thunderstorms last night which greened up the grass beautifully. The early flowers are starting to come up and the birds are chirping away out there. I love spring!!

Have a great day!

Just goes to show that nothing, including the weather, ever stays the same.....

No, nothing stays the same. Our friend stopped over and informed us that his 19 year old grand-daughter was diagnosed with leukemia. She had just given birth to a little boy. They have no health insurance, and no income. That is really sad. We gave him some money to help but it will never be enough. That's what is going on UP here. You think you have it bad, you have no clue what these poor struggling yoopers are going through. Wish he had a website to donate but they don't have a computer. Think you're bad off?

The bridge pictured in ruins, I believe, was the second bridge. (The first was one story high.) It was knocked over by a barge being towed by a steamship. It was replaced by the one torn down when the present bridge was built. As a side note, we kids would wait for the "draw" to swing open and at the very last minute slip under the gate and jump onto the moving draw. By then it was too late for the bridge tenders to stop opening so we got a free ride. I was on the draw around 1946 when the draw was sideswiped by a ship. It was quite a thrill having that big piece of metal shuddering under you for a while. We didn't need drugs to get a buzz in those days.

There used to be a trestle over the Hungarian stream. My pals and I would wait for a train to come and get on the steel under the tracks and feel the shaking. Wonder none of us were killed. Also once was on the trestle on a little platform when the train was coming. The engineer stopped and gave me what for. Never did that again. He even went so far as to threaten to tell my parents. There was a pond close to the tracks also that we would frequent. Caught many bullfrogs there. Guess I am wandering a little. I am in Manistee and we have had some severe weather here.

Sorry to hear that, Hollybranches. Maybe a bank account could be started for donations. That's what people in our small town do, because not everyone has a computer.

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP (Kenjamimi) on Monday, April 11, 2011 - 10:30 pm:

Hei Mikie, we used to go across the Hungarian Creek on both of those trestles. You could get a nice picture of the falls from the upstream one. Used to have a lot of fun at the Hungarian Dam, jumping into the water from those big trees at the edge.
