Snow Cover

March 1st, 2013 at 1:58 pm by under Uncategorized

   Catchin’ some big time air at Pando (click the pic. to enlarge).  This will be a good weekend for winter sports (and this is about 5 generally good weekends in a row).  Here’s a look at how much snow there is on the ground Friday AM (which should last with temps. a little below freezing this weekend, esp. in the shade):  1″ S. Bend, 2″ Lansing, 3″ Ionia, 4″ Grand Rapids, Alma, 5″ Hastings, 7″ Muskegon, Grand Haven, 9″ Hart, Fremont, 11″ Nunica, Baldwin, 13″ Scottville, Houghton Lake, Lake City, 14″ Traverse City, 16″ Green Gardens (the LEAST amount of snow in the U.P.), 19″ Gaylord, 22″ Manistique, 25″ S. Ste. Marie, 33″ Marquette, Munising, 39″ near Houghton and Grand Marais, 43″ Hoist Basin.   It’s a dry weather pattern for the next week with very little snowfall in the state.  Temperatures will be cooler than average thru the mid-part of next week, then a little warmer than average toward the end of next week.

    I just got home from a 107 snowmobile ride a little bit ago. We have right around 6″ here, but the roads are awful for snowmobiling. West of my house in the Allegan State Game area there is still around a foot of snow on the ground, and the dirt roads are still all ice covered, and the trails were amazing. It’s just a shame that roads ruin our snowmobile trails even if we have a ton of snow cover.

    It looks like this will be the last weekend to snowmobile down here unless we get a decent sized snowstorm. We are planning on going up to Baldwin on Sunday to snowmobile. With today’s snowmobile ride I have set a personal best for how many miles I’ve ever snowmobiled in a winter before. Not too shabby for not having snow for the first half of winter.
