Serious winter

After a low snow December and first two weeks of January, winter has come to the Keweenaw Peninsula of Michigan.  We've had about 186 inches (~457 cm) of snow so far.  There is no place to put it now.  We were worried about the lack of snow early in January and now we would all be happy for it to end.  Huge blizzard yesterday closed Tech and the university didn't open today.  This is extremely unusual for my university.  But, on Sunday I had a nice snowshoe in a state park that's on Lake Superior.  Attached are some photos.
