LOL if you move up there you should be very aware of what you're signing up for and deserve NO sympathy. Especially if you're in the Kewanaw.

I would be a very frustrated commuter in that situation.

1. The road becomes impassible due to extreme snowfall.
2. We engineer amazing ways to clear the snow from the road to allow traffic to pass.
3. We block off the ability for people to use the roadway so that people can stand around and and admire our ability to clear snow for people to pass.

wtf?

3...LOL

Looking at those photos again. How is that even safe? It just looks like a good spot for a block of snow to break off and crush some people. Especially if it's melting.

The UP shares latitude with portions of southern Canada. You can definitely drive several hours mostly south from here and then go to Canada.

Northern Canada may as well be Alaska as far as I'm concerned.

300" every 7 or 8 years is common enough to say that it happens sometimes. We only average about get 50" down here along Lake Michigan. You Keweenaw folk are a special breed.

True, my only experience with Canada is Vancouver and Victoria, both of which have very mild weather compared to my experience with Chicago winters.
