One Tough Winter

So .. you think this winter is hard?  Three years ago .. now that was a real winter! The winter of 2013-14 was unrelenting, dumping massive amounts of snow on us, leaving us reeling.  There was nowhere left to put the snow!

I’ve included a few movies to remind you what a real winter looks like.  The first movie shows the high banks of snow at the top of North Lake Leelanau where Houdek Creek empties into the lake.  The other movie was taken in Leland a few days earlier, showing the high banks of snow on the street, reducing us to tunnel dwellers.  By the way, don’t be fooled by the sunny day; that lasted about half an hour! Enjoy!

Grew up in Petoskey, so perhaps one of the few people in Leland who headed south to end up "Up North". Graduated from U of M. Taught in Scotland for 10 years, came back to Leland in 1989 and taught English for 25 years at Leland Public School. Still teach part time for NMC. My lovely wife is named Marjory - three grown kids (two living locally) and three grandkids. We live on N. Lake Leelanau with access to both lakes Michigan and Leelanau Life is good!
