Thread: Has hell frozen over?

Yeah, when I was in St. Joe/Benton Harbor last weekend, I was surprised at how far the ice on the big lake appeared to extend. When I was a kid, we used to drive to Grand Haven or Muskegon State Parks and walk out on the ice. It's been a long time since that was possible. My grandpa also used to take us out on the frozen Grand Traverse Bay on a snowmobile-the east bay would freeze over from the OMP to Elk Rapids.
And, yes, they are now calling the Old Mission Penninsula the "OMP".

I spent nearly every summer weekend on the East Bay of Grand Travers Bay, and still get up to the area frequently. It has been developed beyond my tastes however and I usually stay either near Mesick or up near Suttons Bay.I long for the days when our President actually liked our country.

It's still pretty nice out on the OMP, where my grandpa lives. There are no fast food outlets, just cherry farms, Bed and Breakfasts, wineries, beaches and a few upscale restaurants.
Traverse City itself, though, has become just like any other town. They have malls and strip malls, chain restaurants, and so on. The downtown shopping area is still nice-the old JC Penney's is a Horizon Book Store, which is a nice change from the usual Borders/Barnes and Noble.

OMP is nice, but unless your a millionaire or lucky to inherit, don't plan on living out there anytime soon.

Do not ever say that the desire to "do good" by force is a good motive. Neither power-lust nor stupidity are good motives. (Are you listening Barry)?:mad:
