In some states November snow is a big deal. Not in Michigan. Case in point: The Boyne City football team pushing forward with practice in white out conditions two days before a playoff game.
As captured by Brian Wilmot and submitted to the Petoskey News-Review, Boyne City — a tiny town in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula — spent Wednesday slogging through a solid blanket of snow on the ground and trying to see through an even more dense snowfall cascading down throughout practice.
The team may not have wanted to practice given the conditions, but it had little choice because of the team’s impending playoff face off against Pine River High from LeRoy, Michigan. And given that this is Michigan, it’s highly possible that Friday’s game will played in a similar snowstorm anyway; current weather models give LeRoy and Boyne City a 60 percent chance of snow throughout the day on Friday.
That’s good news for anyone who loves terrific prep photography, though it may not be terrific news for the Boyne City and Pine River players, depending on how they feel about snow.
