Good night
First Post

Good Morning from the Heartland. Any snow yet up North?

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Monday, November 18, 2013 - 06:55 am:

Good Morning. No school in Midland because power is out to more than 25% of customers, many roads closed because of downed trees and wires, traffic signals not working - power may not be restored until Wed night or Thurs. We are very lucky here, especially compared to those in many states that had huge tornadoes last night. Be safe everyone!

Good morning, Steve, RD and Marianne! The beautiful sun is shining with a temp. around 40 ~ I'll take it!!
From what I've heard, Illinois got 'hit' the worst. Prayers for all those folks affected.

Good morning from Minnesota's North Shore. I absolutely love the 2003 picture. I can see the hill where my mom's house sits. At the top of the picture, you can follow the Calumet Hill downward, and then you see a clump of trees before a path leading to the woods. Then there's another little clump of trees, and after that there's a small hill where my mom's house sits. It also has a path leading to the woods where I spent an awful lot of my childhood. Sure didn't need a Play Station or X-Box to have a good time. We made our own good times and I wouldn't change it for the world.

Hope you all have a great day!

"GOOD almost AFTERNOON"A lot of wind and rain last
night.My shop has no power, home early. DTE said
maybe 24 to 48 hours before power is restored.

By Marianne Y (Marianne) on Monday, November 18, 2013 - 12:16 pm:

Yes, prayers for all of the folks who were injured or killed or had their homes destroyed or seriously damaged. Illinois does seem to have the most damage, followed by Indiana. My prayers are with them and with all of the people who suffered wind, et al damage. I also hope the Midland Hospital's backup power supply is working for those who are there.

Was watching an old video last evening and found an interesting documentary I taped in 1988/89 about the U.P. It was hosted by Hal Holbrook. Seems at one time there was a 'battle' between Michigan and Ohio over which state would 'own' Toledo. Pres. Andrew Jackson 'gave' it to OH because there were more votes involved.(?) Now this is what was interesting ~ as a 'consolation', Pres. Jackson gave MI the U.P., even though they didn't want it because it was a 'wilderness' and wouldn't amount to anything.
Any of you Yoopers ever heard of that?

By mickill mouse (Ram4) on Monday, November 18, 2013 - 04:14 pm:

SHIRLEY; I heard that one. I think it was a pretty good 'consolation';O)

By DEAN SCHWARTZ SR. (Lulu) on Monday, November 18, 2013 - 04:27 pm:

Shirley, yes it was the Toledo strip war. I know
that Michigan got the better deal, with the U.P.

By Waveaction (Lakelover) on Monday, November 18, 2013 - 04:31 pm:

Well, the balance of nature is out of balance, in some places. The wolf "harvesting" has started up here and to date, they have 6 wolves in Houghton/Ontonagon/Gogebic counties that have been reported.

On another note, here is another wolf problem:

I feel this is a good thing, so many pets have been killed.

By Shirley Waggoner (Shirlohio) on Monday, November 18, 2013 - 05:43 pm:

Mickill and Dean, I agree with both of you ~ Michigan is fortunate to have the UP, and not Toledo.;>
That shows what can be done with a 'wilderness'!!

Greetings from Marquette, feels great to be in town. Had a Vango's pizza for dinner, and just working on some reports. Calling on MGH tomorrow, and working my way to the Keweenaw by Thursday.
Crossing the bridge today was pretty wild, escort's going both ways. In all my 55 years of coming U.P. here for vacations, college and now work, I bet I average crossing both ways 10 times a year. Today had to rank in the top 5 most tretchurous/white knuckle ride's! Either that or I'm just getting old, lol
Check you tomorrow night.
