    Actually, you're not much further north. You're mostly west.

    Really ??? How interesting... Go figure that you would be north with milder weather.. Different weather anyway..
    Then why is the weather up here somewhat colder than what you have ??
    We have Lake Huron which produces all kinds of weather like squalls and high winds..
    Also Lake Superior is a wicked one and we often get some weather from there..

    I grew up in the southern Upper Peninsula of Michigan and the winter weather is usually more extreme there. I've always thought it had to do with the Great Lakes.

    Ken...
    your right.. Those huge bodies of water can create some nasty squalls and some weird weather..
    Sault Ste. Marie is in a real snow belt.. They get more snow than Massey because of Lake Superior which is a nasty one..
    Did you know that Lake Superior is the largest fresh water lake in the world ???
    Did you know that Lake Superior is the deepest fresh water lake in the world ??
    Don't know if you remember the ship the "Edmond Fitzgerald" that sank just off the shores of Sault Ste. Marie in a November squall.. It was a huge ship..

    Massey has cancelled our annual agricultural fair this year due to the pandemic..
    It is the largest fall fair in Northern Ontario.. Our village of just under 1000 people welcomes about 10,000 visitors to the fair..
    it is a big money thing for us.. it is always the third week-end in August..

    I'm sure you have checked it out..
    We love it up here and wouldn't consider ever moving to a big city anymore..
    Basically, we like breathing air that hasn't been breathed before...……... Clean air and clean waters..

    There's one place on Earth where you'll be looking South no matter which way you turn.

    It's the North Pole, pilgrims.
