Deep Roots...

When I was growing up, my father always said, "if you want to stay and live in the UP... you've got to be willing to work hard. Even if it means working more than one job."  A few years ago, I stood next to him, crying as I watched his home burning to the ground. His response to me was "The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. God is good." Over the course of the next two years, I witnessed him work two jobs, run a small farm, and re-build his home and life.  I never heard him complain about it once.

You see, that work ethic here in the UP stems from some very deep roots. My grandfather and great grandfather were dairy farmers in the Keweenaw. Man what a hard life it was back then. But these people up here are resilient. These miners, farmers, loggers... and countless more.
