Snowed, 'Eh

This morning watching the weather on the news, I remembered one of the key perks to Ron working at a school... Today there was a 2 hour delay for many schools, which soon turned into a full snow day! That meant that Ron got to stay home and I got a hand with Lucy which helped me get a lot of stuff done...

Now that the day is winding down, he put in Escanaba in Da Moonlight, a really weird Jeff Daniels comedy that takes place, obviously, in the UP of Michigan. Since that is where Ron is from, it is extra entertaining (as well as disturbing). He's doing is weird laugh right now. Note: there was just a Leinenkugal reference for anyone interested. Anyway, it is pretty funny and I recommend it, especially if you're at all familiar with Yooper culture.

I am so jealous of snow days! Where did Ron grow up? I have some Yooper blood in me...my grandmother was from Munising (my aunt and uncle also live there), and we have an old family cabin/"camp" up near Pictured Rocks.

he's from Daggett (Stephenson HS) - which is an hour south(west) of Escanaba... Menominee county (getting close to Wisconsin). Moved up when he was 6 months old and moved to lower MI for college (WMU) & stayed ever since.
