Several Northern Michigan Counties Saw Over a Foot of Snow This Weekend

Posted: Updated:

With the help of the Great Lakes, parts of Northern Michigan were hit hard with snow, including Kalkaska that saw over a foot.

Some of us woke up to blankets of snow yesterday morning, while others just experienced a light dusting.

Kalkaska saw more then their fair share, for a first snow; 15 inches were recorded in some parts of the city.

Many took to their snow plows and shovels to dig themselves out of driveways and the streets.

Residents say it was a surprising turn of weather, since Thanksgiving was so warm.

Lake effect can be blamed for why the snow wasn't consistent across Northern Michigan.
