Still remember visiting my HS counselor about college choices back in Spring 1971. I was interested in engineering. He recommended Michigan Tech in Houghton MI, but started by asking me if I liked snow. Well, duh...Michiganders like...or tolerate a fair amount of snow, so I said yes. He said “good, cuz they had ~320 inches of snow this winter and most of it’s still on the ground.“ The Navy intercepted my trip there, but ended up in the Soo after the Navy...where they get a meager 150-180+ inches a winter. And yes, cars disappear frequently.
