I had heard that from my buddie up there. He was saying that it had snowed last Monday and Tuesday, of course no accumulation, but still.

What ever happened to that sign , it once said, End of the earth 15 miles, Houghton, 20

Why in the heck would they have taken that down. Up at Michigan Tech they still sell the Post cards, but the sign went bye bye.

Cant agree more....cross the bridge and its like you get in a completely different state of mind.I go to Drummond a few times a year for a weekend.
And I cut through Marquette on my way back from ND almost monthly.........cross the bridge coming back and its like...."Home crap Home"(even though I love it where I live...but I grew up in Detroit,so anything is better than that)

Just made it back! I did go to the end of the world also, found out that it is only about 5 miles from Copper Harbor.

What a great trip until I had to drive through a friggin tornado HigginsLake and the Clare rest area.

Must have weathered it ok. You have power and internet still. We had no internet at work (St Johns), I guess the wireless repeater blew off the tower it was on. Glad I don't have that here.

Anyway, hope everybody made it through ok up there.

Going down Mt hope rd from M100 east looks like a war zone with all the trees down and a barn gone.
