With temperatures expected to soar into the 80’s this week, local paddleboarding enthusiasts aren’t about to let a little bit of ice on Little Traverse Bay get in the way of their favorite pastime. This group took advantage of the East wind, which pushed the ice toward Harbor Springs, to launch their crafts at the Petoskey State Park. There will be plenty of water to enjoy this summer, with Lake Michigan-Huron water levels up about a foot from last year.
Little Traverse Bay, along with the rest of Northern Lower Michigan, was hammered by strong thunderstorms last night, which caused extensive damage in the area of Wequetonsing, just East of Harbor Springs. As can be seen in these photos, almost no docks were spared, and numerous boats ended up on shore. While we are used to seeing images like this from areas ravaged by hurricanes, it is not very often that we have storm damage such as this Up North. The NOAA weather buoy in Little Traverse Bay registered peak wind gusts of 38.9 knots out of the SSW at 10:00 p.m. and 10:10 p.m., with peak wave height of 6.2 feet measured at 10:50 p.m.

"We have moved several times, working with numerous agents. Stefan is the only agent we would recommend! He is prompt, responsive, a great negotiator, and a great communicator. Stefan offered the most thorough competitive analysis we have ever seen and pushed for the last dollar. His legal expertise helped the closing when there could have been a snag. We have never had an agent work this hard for us and we would work with Stefan again."
