Major Winter Storm in Michigan
A winter storm is ravaging the western Upper Peninsula. George Hite (author of the fantastic George's Eagle Harbor Web reports:
"What a storm we are experiencing! It's Thursday late afternoon, the first of an expected three day good old-fashioned Copper Country blizzard. Old snow and massive clusters of arriving lake effect is swirling about out my window, obscuring even the harbor waters just fifty or so feet away. The timbers of this old camp are shaking and groaning - buffeted by the gale force winds blasting in from the big lake. Temperatures, a balmy high twenties at this day's dawn, are now in the single digits, and dropping about two degrees an hour as they head to the forecasted beastly sub-zeros. My furnace and fireplace are both in winter storm mode, but the little thermometer alongside my computer says 60, no doubt reacting to the cold air being pushed through my all too porous camp door and window frames. I'm wrapped in a big comforter, with double socks and a wool cap. Exciting, but not much fun."
