Anybody want to go ride in the UP this week?


Winter Storm Watch in effect from Wednesday evening through
Thursday evening...

The National Weather Service in Marquette has issued a Winter
Storm Watch... which is in effect from Wednesday evening through
Thursday evening.

Look for rain to mix with snow late Wednesday afternoon... then
change over to all snow Wednesday evening. By sunset on
Wednesday... 1 to 2 inches of snow is possible... greatest over
higher terrain from Hancock to Twin Lakes. An additional 4 to 7
inches is possible Wednesday night with 3 to 5 inches more on
Thursday... heaviest over the higher terrain inland from Lake
Superior. In addition to the snow... winds will increase to 25 to
35 mph Wednesday evening with gusts near 45 mph... resulting in
very low visibilities in the snow. Expect the winds to diminish
only slightly on Thursday.

We are supposed to be going up to Houghton this weekend and show the kids where we went to school. I thought we would see some nice trees and go hiking. Now we may need to bring the winter gear. YUCK!!!

Hey UMP --- what is the verdict on the snow? Web Cams in Houghton show a couple inches maybe. Are they saying you are going to get more or is this it?

My 8 year old is already convinced he is going to da tech. Might have something to do with if he goes anywhere else I am not paying!!!!

I can still remember as a Freshman walking by the Chem-Met and falling on my face with the 50 MPH wind and ice.
