As of yesterday (Sunday), there were still patches of snow left in Michigan. According to WOOD-TV, there's still snow on Mt. Ripley, just north of Houghton, in the Upper Peninsula. Here's the good news - if you really have some time on your hands, you can watch the last of the snow melt on Mt. Ripley, courtesy of Michigan Tech's "Mont Ripley" webcam.

Or you can sit at the window in one of the restaurants in downtown Houghton and have some pizza and beer, while you watch the snow melt up on the hill . My favorite is the "Ambassador", but there's plenty of others.

Across the bridge, turn left and then turn right at Iron Mountain. Can't miss it.
