    It seems that living in the U.P. you tend to view winter as a battle ground (with the exception of the enjoyment of winter sports). So when you get the start of a winter that is as unusual as this one is, you take note of it. I mean, here it is, 7 Dec and the yard is almost completly void of snow!! Sunday after Thanksgiving, there was almost two feet of snow on the ground! We've only had a couple nights of below zero temps and only a few days of poor driving conditions. BUT....we all know whats going to happen! Skiers and snowmobiliers are chomping at the bit.

    Yooper, I'm betting the skiing operators are really hurting. Perhaps they were opened at Thanksgiving time some but it has to be poor now for sure. I still miss the UP but it appears we will stay put right here now. If we hunger for more snow and colder, we'll come up.
