I haven’t posted anything in almost a year, I know, sad eh. If I feel up to it, and have something to say, I might start posting again. We shall see I guess.
Anyway, hope you all have had a great Christmas and start of the new year.
It’s been quite a while since my last post, I just haven’t had really anything to say. This winter has been a humdrum type of winter, very little snow, not real cold, nor warm, just humdrum. I haven’t been doing a damn thing for weeks.
Anyway, I guess that’s about all, just humdrum.
Headed up to the Keweenaw yesterday in hopes of some big ice on the rocks, not much yet. I think it’s been to warm until the past few days for a good ice build up.
The weather was really crappy north of Calumet. The was either light freezing rain falling or a few wet snow.
Also, I couldn’t fly the drone too much, one due to the freezing crap icing up my rotor blades, and two… there were too many eagles hunting along the shore and they were eyeballing the drone.
Today I woke up to 2 fresh inches of snow, then at 7:00 AM the lake effect machine kicked in. By noon I had 7.3 inches and the sun came out, so it was time to shovel and clear the driveway.
After defrosting the car from an inch of snow on top of an inch of frozen rain and graupel mix, I head to to store for a few groceries. On the way I noticed three freighters in the bay taking refuge from the storm. Knowing I wouldn’t be able to get much of a photo from shore to include all three, I decided to fly the drone up from the house and see what I could get.
