Always an adventure! No new snow this morning but its moved east. I90 is closed east of here. We'll hang out here for a bit. Glad I serviced the a/c and heaters. We're keeping toasty on camp ground electricity. New door seals are on the list of things to do. There's a big truck parts store close by. Might go shopping for some new spray nozzles for the wiper arms.

The snowman died!

No snow today but the weather to the east was bad and the wind were blowing over 30 kts. We stayed put and will head out for another long day early tomorrow. Manistique Mi is in the sights.

Back on the road trying to get through this stationary line of weather. Sitting in Albert Lea waiting for it to stop snowing.

Might stop and role one up! A snowman, that it!

Roads are just wet but the winds are ripping out of the north. Close to freezing so I'm being pretty cautious!

The KOA we spent 2 days at was only about 50 miles west of here. They have gotten over 20 inches with 10 yesterday.

Had to modify the plans after the 3 day weather delay. The trip across Minnesota and Wisconsin was pretty ugly with snow, whiteouts, strong winds and slippery roads. Things cleared up about Green bay. We stopped for the night at the Onida Indian casino. Free RV parking turned into $15 and another $80 for dinner and $20 in the slots trying to pay for the trip.

The next day got us on the other side of the weather as we crossed the UP.

We spent the next night visiting friends at cross village in the very NW corner of the lower peninsula. Berry is doing the finish work on this zillion $ beach house. Camped on his property for a couple of days. The solar kept us powered for heat, water pressure, and entertainment.

The interior is phenomenal but probable o appropriate to post the pics.

We are headed up to the UP in a couple of weeks - after Alumapalooza. Is this black fly season?
