Vol XV #287 - Waiting For Winter to Return
Vol XV #289 - Meggen's Monday


Winter found it’s way back home!  A blustery return with northwest winds gusting to over 35 mph.  Our Leelanau Road Commission plows had the roads cleared before 7am for the go to church folks, God loveum.

Biscuit and I tried to get down to Van’s Beach, but the wind and corn snow drove us back.   



The Leland Report/Leif Spork Snow Gauge contest is closed. We had a total of 47 entries. We will report the final tally on 4/30/16!Snowreport1-10-16

Thanks for the peek at Vans. You’re a real trooper.


Always enjoy beautiful daily photos no matter the weather! What is “corn snow” you referred to off Van’s Beach?

Lots more snow up in Leelanau than down here in Holland. Love seeing the daily photos!
