A wee blog about the weather--

Wednesday, January 12, 2011

To-day , in our area, we managed to not get the big snow storm which is crossing the country- We are north of the Great Lakes, and believe it or not, in the last few years, we haven't had the snowfall amount that we used to get. This sounds good , but, in the summers now, due to lack of snowfall in the winter and thus, the lack of moisture in the ground, , the level of the lakes around here is getting lower and lower. This has affected the fishing in the area. We have about 4000 lakes, within 100 miles of our town- We used to be a huge tourist area--fishing in the summers---- and snowmobiling in the winters. And now, even our trails are not completely snow packed, as they used to be.

And I look at the television and see all the flooding in other areas of the world. It is strange isn't it ? emoticon

    Here in the mountains of AZ we depend on the winter snows too. Without them our trees become stressed and a lot killed by the pinebark beetle. Only in the past two years have we gotten the amount of snow we need to keep the forests healthy. Our lakes are recovering too.

    I live on Lake Michigan and due to the lack of rainfall and snow to the north (probably near you) Lake Michigan is down about 11 inches and has been for several years! So far this winter, our snowfall has been minimal to what it should be...

    I will be glad when our snow is gone.
    WE are having more snow than usual.
    Don't want to complain to bad, God let this happen.
    I don't know as much as He does.

    The weather has been different this winter.

    Stay warm.
