Snowy and Cold February

The average temperature in Marquette for February 2015…..2.4 degrees F. Yeah. 2.4 degrees. I can’t even count how many days I have got up and started my car in the negative double digits. There were several mornings below -20 degrees. So cold!

I swear I will never complain about the cold again! It has been in the 90’s up here in Marquette for the past few days and it is unbearable… We have been keeping cool by jumping in Lake Superior everyday and doing other fun water sports. We went kayaking down the AuTrain River with about 150 people on the 4th of July. It was fun but crowded. We also went sailing and paddle boarding last week.
