Winter 2008


04/01/08

April Fool's day hit us hard! Jesse and I plowed from noon till 6:30, and that was only for the front area of the store. What a mess!
   Snowfall totals in some places in Marquette County topped 20 inches, causing a hard day of work for shovelers and plow trucks.
  Marquette County Road Commission plows had been out in 12-hour shifts since Monday night, but were hampered by continued snow and winds.
By two o’clock in the afternoon (Tuesday) they were able to make some progress.

Notice my and Jesse's vehicals are nearly buried.

Jess and I taking a break.


04/01/08

Piles and piles of snow everywhere.


01/02/08

Hoolie helps clear snow from one of the plow trucks. Because we receive so much snow and have such a large area to plow we have two plow trucks here at the Trap.. oh yeah, plus a back-up wrecker/plow truck!

Hoolie catches me getting a face full of hot coffee..

THE UNMITIGATED GLORIOUS SPLENDER!

Hoolie catches a winter scene at the trap to remind him of what he and Norm will truly be missing while basking in the sun in Arizona for the next few months..

03/13/06

SNOW FOR SALE CHEAP!
I suggested to Hoolie that we may be able to make a truck load of money if we sell snow on ebay. He thought it was a great idea, then handed me the shovel....


03/13/06

Norm asked Hoolie to check da oil in her olds, after getting one sock full of snow, he gave up, den called her and said it's good....


03/13/06

HOOLIE DOES DA HEIKKI LUNTA DANCE!
I told him to stop or I'd kick his ass! We got to much snow already
pretty much a little bit....


02/16/06

HOOLIE WELCOMES THE BIG ONE WITH CLENCHED FIST!
Our first truly big storm begins to dump its load on Yooperland. The Weather men have dubbed it "Kristina," and it's predicted to drop 20 inches by tomorrow...
We'll snap another pic at the same spot in 24 hours, Hoolie will be standing in the same spot till then....

Here's Hoolie giving da Yooper snow god "Heikki Lunta" hell for taking a dump on us poor Yoopers


Here's Hoolie da same day giving da Yooper snow god "Heikki Lunta" hell for cloggin' da roads all up. He wanted to leave for Arizona after work (he and da wife Norm need to visit da relatives), but it looks like he'll have to wait a few days for da snow to clear up...

Here's Hoolie showing some customers from Green bay the unique yard rock he hand picked during the summer from all over da North Western areas of da U.P.!

I told Hoolie to pick away at da over hang of snow on da eves wit da shovel, 
he said, "yah, dis will be a good pic for da website, eh..."
Den I said, "Hold still now, eh, ...three...two...one..."
"PERFECT!"
Hoolie gets buried by an avalanche of snow and I (Bella) get a great shot 
for da website. Thanks Hoolie!
(I hurried in side from da cold and snow for some hot coffee, ahhh, 
- I mean to warm up da camera, eh)
Here's me on Monday the 8th demonstrating a shoveling technique my Great Uncle Arnold Norr taught me...
Wait patiently for the snow to melt a lot a little bit...

 

02/10/04

BOY DID WE GET CLOBBERED!
Hoolie's sick of winter and he wants to head to Mexico...
AS SOON AS HE GETS DA DOG-GONE VAN DUG OUT, 
FOR CRUMP'S SAKE!

Hoolie's warming up his ears wit his ear gloves.

Well we knew we'd eventually get it, 
and boy did we!
Here's Hoolie wit da shovel, all snow blind and stuff after shoveling three truck loads of snow in da back so da employees could enter 
da building...

Hoolie takes a well deserved nap-e-poo
in da parking lot after all dat 
shoveling dere dough, 
at least I think he was taking a nap...
his left leg was twitching...
he must-a been dreaming....
The camera started to get cold 
so I (Bella) hurried back inside for some 
hot cocoa and Christmas cookies 
while it warmed up....
da end!
