Lake Superior Marquette Beach 5 25 14 with ICE  high was 85 at MQT  from Vanb and MQT NWS facebook page  Ice at Lake Superior MODIS  shot Saturday May 24  The high temperature at the Marquette Airport (well inland) was 85° on Sunday…but…  This is what it looked like at the beach! (pic. from the Marquette NWS facebook page and Doug Vanb).   Easiest day a lifeguard ever had.    Check out this picture Sunday from the beach at Grand Marais.  Note, not only the expanse of ice, but also, no leaves on the trees yet.  Here’s Union Bay – Silver City MI on Friday.  Here’s the ice at  Black River HarborAnother pic. of the ice at Marquette.  Satellite pic. from Saturday on the right shows the ice against the southern shore of the lake, where the north wind has blown it.

    Up late tonight Bill, at a sleepover. It’s fun to monitor all of your updates, I appreciate all of them. :) I like your pic if your dad at WW11, he seems very brave. My grandpa was in the navy in World War Two and used to tell me lots of stories about the war. He also lost his house during the depression but got a good job when it ended.

    The 25th annual Memorial Day concert was live on PBS last night. It’s simply fantastic. If you’ve never watched it, make it a point to catch it next year.

          Thanks for paying attention. Noticed you haven’t been posting those the past week or so. Your trolling is getting more pathetic. Speaking of losers, how did your prediction of no 80′s until the middle of June turn out. I love it. Fantastic. Who knew? Isn’t it time to hit the minature golf course for the day. Thanks for listening and taking the time to respond. Fantastic. I love it.

    Had a great time in the UP. Ice still on Lake Superior by Marquette and Munising. (Bill posted 2 of my pics on his blog on Friday). We had beautiful, sunny weather the whole time we were up there. We went all the way to Copper Harbor. The trees are just starting to get buds on them and there were still some patches of snow left. Lots of people were looking for moral mushrooms and we found a few ourselves. Rocky, you would have been in 7th Heaven to see all the ice chunks on the lake yet. It was quite amazing to see! Hope everyone has a wonderful day :)
