Good News is the snow started yesterday here in the Tip O' the Mit, the bad news is, the ground is still too warm. It's sticking in the woods, on the underbrush and trees but most roads are melting. From what I saw on the radar, it will be good for the Yooper ML opener, and I'm hoping it stays here too. Hopefully, we don't get into that dreaded freeze-thaw cycle again. I think it really hurt the herd last year.

The weather reports last nite claimed an additional 2" overnite in my area, with more the closer you get to L. Michigan. I see maybe 1" actual.

I'm leaving for camp in about 5 minutes; it's about time that we had late fall type weather. I'm tired of 6" of mud instead of 6" of snow.

Anyone know how much snow is on the ground in the White Cloud area. I am going hunting this weekend and was just curious.
