The Winterless Winter

We've heard that northern Michigan is setting records for lack of snow and that temperatures are high this winter.
Here are some other "numbers" to illustrate.
Gahagan has had no more than 10 days where one could cross-country ski this winter.
There have been no days where the snow depth was enough to make snowshoeing easier than just walking in your boots.

As the photo shows, on Super Bowl Sunday, even the deep woods at Gahagan have some bare spots.
