Woooow! That is some nasty damage! We were fortunate to have minor damage compared to that.

Wow, what a mess! I hope your house didn't suffer any major damage. Looks like a lot of trees will have to be replanted. The tree in the 7th picture looks like a peeled banana.

Thanks for sharing these, and letting us know what is happening up there.

Clean up will take a while... the city has to bring in a tree cutting compamy before they can fix all the power lines. As of now Silver Bay has power, but Finland isn't expected to have power until Friday. I haven't heard anything about Beaver Bay or Lax Lake Rd.

We have a total of seven trees in our yard and five I'm sure will have to be cut down. Thank God no house or car damage for us. I took a drive around town this morning taking pictures and I didn't see any other house with major damage. We are going to Finland this evening to see how every thing is out there.

Has anybody else been through this??

finnbay - Do you know of a John Bushbaum from Babbitt?

Hey Natalie, thanks for sharing your pictures. Sorry to see all of your damage. Thank goodness that nobody was hurt from all of this.

Again, thanks for sharing. The closeup is a great shot. Proves that you can find some beauty in everything no matter how much damage there may be around you...

Great googly moogly. That looks insane. My wife works in Finland and she said everything was covered in ice but I didn't realize it was that crazy. crazy

thats a nice moose. i know your parents. just got back last night from the lodge. it took along time just to clear the driveway. there was still over 2 feet of snow around the campsites and couldtnt even get to the sites to clear them out. gonna head back up the last weekend of april and get it cleaned up. leroy doesnt think he'll be open for the ATVAM event, but i think they will be after a couple good work weekends.

    • I was glad I had scratchers on thursday,,,, after 7 miles on the trail my skid looked show room clean ,,, put the scratchers down and all was good ,,,Trails are still rideable up here but showing some snert,,, Gonna switch to ice fishing till we get some snow cover again 
    • I thought it looked cool, the way it unfolds.   Run time indeed is an issue, and it would probably take slogging through them one by one to tell.
    • U have to keep telling us.......
    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate.
