Signs - Delaware

Sign and Signboards, Historical markers, Seasons, Winter, Woody Plants, Trees In order to get this photo of the Delaware Highway sign, the post had to be dug out by the photographer. The snow measuring instruments are across the road from the sign. Delaware is an abandoned copper mining community in Keweenaw County, MI. This county is Michigan's farthest north and its peninsula prong bisects Lake Superior to a great extent. [Image of the sign buried in snow.]

Historic Sites, Historical Markers, Seasons, Winter, Woody Plants, Trees The Houghton Soldier, marching through the drifts, is wearing the world's coldest imitation mink hat. Heavy snow is predicted for the Copper Country, and conditions could conceivably grow worse after winter begins on Monday. This is the most snow that has ever fallen in the Houghton area by this time of the year, about 82 inches at press time. Truly a monumental fall. Tennis, anyone? [The statue erected in memory of Houghton Company is shown as it appeared after a heavy snowfall.]
