Want to tag along on our trip to “The Copper Country” yesterday?
Barry had to cover an 8th grade junior high girl’s basketball tournament in Calumet for his job at our local newspaper, so off we drove through a beautiful autumn afternoon for our “date”.
We always eat out during our dates.
We often go grocery shopping in Houghton, or stop by the Keweenaw Co-op in Hancock.
Lovely afternoon, indeed. Click here if you’re interested in reading about the Keweenaw National Historic Park.
I must tell you–the radio fella kept predicting a winter storm advisory.
Now, truly, does it LOOK like it’s going to snow?
I had a few wild & crazy moments in Econofoods, when the camera wouldn’t stop documenting items such as turkey gizzards and pickled Polish eggs and Finnish squeaky cheese. You’ve all had this happen, right?
We attended the L’Anse and Baraga girls basketball games. We drove south toward home when suddenly–NO, it couldn’t be!–cars appeared covered with snow.
Then the roadside appeared covered with snow.
An inch or two of snow had fallen whilst we attended the basketball game!
Lest you be thinking that we’re covered in snow down here in Aura this morning, never fear. Even though it rained and snowed all night, the snow has all melted. It tentatively looks like autumn again outside our window. But they’re predicting more snow this week…
Winter starts so darn early in these parts, doesn’t it?
