On Friday, February 5th we had a Skype session with a middle school in Ishpeming, Michigan. We found out that their average snow fall per year is around 300 inches and that everyone owns snowshoes and/or cross country skis! Another interesting fact is that this area of the state is known for their iron ore mining and we even talked to Peter who told us about his dad working in the mine.
