No, it's not 200 inches in depth! Actually, we have had 208 inches, but it compacts down. It was about 40 inches on the 3 or 4 tee boxes that I measured.

200 inches over the season? 200 inches is over 16 feet so I don't see how that could compact down to under 4 feet.

The rest of his family lived around Escanaba and thought we were crazy for living on the Superior side. My dad always said he went to Michigan State instead of Tech because you would have to be crazy to live on the Keweenaw. Crazy is as crazy does.

This is one of the reasons I'm content with moving down south. It was 70 and dry for my round this afternoon.

An inch of rain is equivalent to a 9-12in of snow, more or less.

I'm not actually sure where that was but I guess its Europe judging by the traffic flow, lol...(do they drive on the same side as us in Canada? never been there myself)Though, I do remember seeing places as bad or worse than that a couple years ago on the news. I think it was Minnesota or N Dakota.
