Just as Michigan was starting to warm up and the snow was starting to melt, Mother Nature came in with a wallop this past weekend.
From Monroe to Ishpeming, motorists found themselves stranded, school kids had yet another snow day, utility workers found themselves putting in overtime, and the snowplows were out en masse.
The Mining Journal reports that even the die-hard ski jumpers in the Upper Peninsula had to wait a day or two as the Paul Bietila Memorial Ski Jumping Tournament was canceled due to the weather. Residents there were expected to see as much as a foot of snow before all was said and done.
With temperatures in the 30′s for the next couple days, it looks like we may get that reprieve from the frosty bite of the air, but don’t store away the scraper for your car just yet!
