We started to build snow statues for the coming Winter Carnival here at Michigan Tech. They are just huge bricks of snow and ice at this moment. But we should know what they are in a week or so.

It's interesting to watch the progress of some of these statues on the webcams at www.mtu.edu. Amazing what can be done with snow and ice. We'll be up during Winter Carnival to see the results.

For those of you who dont know, the snow statues are not just at road side, go on campus and walk around they create an awsome site. A couple of our past favorites were the lift bridge and the log cabin complete with see thru ice windows. We love your outdoor pics. Thanks

Mimi and I went up to South Range and Hancock last week for the Heikken Päivää dance and music at the Finnish Heritage Center. We left Chassell Sunday 'round noon and the snow chased us. Caught us in Ishpeming at the Country Kitchen. Then it chased us to Palmer but we lost it. There's only 'bout 1 1/2 inches here in Cornell.
Gonna be cold again tonight, it's already down to 5 deg. (above) This computer was also down for the past couple days, but we're baaaa-ack! ;o)

Ya gotta love the Copper Country when you see the snow piling up...especially when it's raining here in Seattle. Wish I was there.

Taka, What are you studying at MTU? From all the beautiful and professional looking photos you have had in the last week or so, I wonder if you should re-think the major!! Unless it IS photography.

By Martha K., Pinckney, MI on Saturday, January 25, 2003 - 11:41 pm:

Taka, I love that top picture! It captures so well that close darkness of a cold winter night when the icy atmosphere seems to absorb the light so even high intensity street lamps look like 40 watt lightbulbs, and the fresh snow absorbs all sound except the crunching made by your own boots. Exhilarating!

That top photo is really magical. I just wish I could walk there with all that snow around. I look forward to seeing the snow statues - something better than snowmen I'll bet!!!

Taka..you HAVE mastered your camera. Thank you for sharing with us.

Question: WHY does it feel like we have soooooo much more snow than what it looks like? :-)

By Greta, Ca on Sunday, January 26, 2003 - 11:58 am:

Ooooohh, if I could only be there. This is my kind of weather, and what winter is all about.

By Taka, MTU on Sunday, January 26, 2003 - 12:34 pm:

Thank you everybody. Alice, I am in EE major, and designing/invention is what I want to do. I will be happy to make few dollars in photography if there is a chance though :)

By AimeeR, MTU on Sunday, January 26, 2003 - 05:01 pm:

Only the squeakiest snow around these parts! (I think that means its really cold. If it doesn't, just believe me! I'm freeeezing!!!)

By Phil, Manton, MI on Monday, January 27, 2003 - 01:09 pm:

Greta, This looks like a good week to be at your Copper Harbor Get-Away Pad. I'm sure there is peace and quiet there now, maybe a little wind howling around giving the area a fresh white cover.

By Greta, Ca on Tuesday, January 28, 2003 - 06:45 pm:

Phil, one of these years (hopefully this year) I can spend some time during the winter months up there. Talk about a change of seasons! Ye-haa! Just yesterday we were in shirt sleeves and shorts outside until late. Not much change of seasons down here.
