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

    • Good job!  I have never found any Blacks so they look a little different.  Can you take a picture of what they look like cut in half? They look a little scary like False Morel's 
    • I picked for about 2 hours this morning. I'm not exactly haw many I got but its enough for a couple meals. I'm going to chop some of these up and mix with some cream cheese, feta cheese and garlic chives and then stuff some chicken breasts and cook them on the grill. The little bit of rain that we got last week helped the shrooms pop but it really didn't do much else for the woods besides help the mosquito's hatch. There were so many they licked the bug spray off first then swarmed. I found the mushrooms all over, North, South, East and West facing hills. Normally spot 1 has the best results but this trip it was my second spot. All of them had pretty good size too. Only a few that were in direct sunlight were dried up otherwise they are very firm. Spot 1 is the left container. Don't worry, I use a mesh bag while I'm out in the woods!
    • Yup.... 6 & 4 for Lead.... 4 & 2 for steel
    • I ended up framing my house, putting on the T&G , and then spray foaming back against the interior, which may be why I am not seeing any movement... I also used pine vs cedar
    • I agree with the guy who agreed with the other guy.
    • Just wait till they come up with the remote submarine drone with 3d high resolution camera that can see through algae and milfoil and transmit to your eyewear in 3d.   I struggle with properly tying a berkley knot......
    • I agree with rundrave. #4 early and #2 shot later in year
    • Yes, 5/16 T&G I installed last fall. I did the same, but I see this summer it's starting to buckle  
    • Adding a 4th wouldn't do much IMO. The map screen is already too small to be useful when screen is split in 3. I added a Helix 7 G2N to use as a map screen. Networked with other 2 units
    • I could always go and spend more money on an additional unit but some of it is like Floyd said. I have a hard enough time watching one screen. I have the app on my phone. I think that lowrance has the ability to split the screen into 4. I just can't believe I'm the only person who would like to see this but maybe I am. It may not be as big a deal once I get more familiar with the unit. Right now I like to look at all the screens to help discern what it is im seeing on the screen.  I appreciate the input!
