Hi Everyone! I'm new to the U.P. My husband and I just moved to Gladstone in June when he started a new job in Escanaba. Originally for Mt. Morris, north of Flint. I loved my first summer and fall up here. Happy New Year!

HAPPY NEW YEAR ALL AND GOOD LUCK IN YOUR GOALS JACK
Merry Christmas to all. We can be grateful for a Christmas that wasn't 0 degrees. No blizzard or 40mph winds. Could have been just a teeny weeny warmer but hey, its the UP right? I'm in the Ishpeming area, it was sunny which was a plus. I'm not an outdoorsy person but I should be, at least in the winter anyway. I usually leave the house for work, the store and once in a while on a warmer day, I go see my horse. Snowshoeing, skiing ... sound like fun. My friend tore all the ligaments in her knee skiing and she was off work for 3.5 months. I can't risk that. If the weather was more like today, I think I'd be more likely to venture out. Well anyway, Merry Christmas.
Courage, it would seem, is nothing less than the power to overcome danger, misfortune, fear, injustice, while continuing to affirm inwardly that life with all its sorrows is good; that everything is meaningful even if in a sense beyond our understanding; and that there is always tomorrow. -Dorothy Thompson
Jeremiah 29:11,13 For I know the thoughts that I think toward you, says the Lord, thoughts of peace and not of evil, to give you a future and a hope. ...and you will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart.
The early bird gets the worm, but the 2nd mouse gets the cheese!
Christmas greetings from Marquette. . . There are at least two sparks people here. As for where to snowshoe in Marquette, try the Fit Strip at Park Cemetery, the bike paths or the road/trails around Presque Isle park. I've been in the UP for about 33 years. The trick to surviving winter is good quality warm jackets, pants and boots. It also helps to have an indoor hobby, and to go somewhere without snow for a week or two in Feb. or March!
I'm in the Marquette area...just inland enough to bear the brunt of the infamous "lake effect snow". I do like winter...to an extent. I like to snowshoe but I'm not real wild about snowblowing. Of course, this is December...ask me how much I like winter in February/March and I'll likely have a very different answer. :)
hello yoopers!! kingsford, mi here...any one from my town or area? i just don't like the snow but i will handle it instead of all the nasty weather they have in the other areas of the country!!..........but the cold and snow just last to long........i do not get out much in the winter because of the weather....love when the sun shines and that is rare in the winter.........to much darkness...........!!
