From Facebook posts: “Snowed in at Suttons Bay. Send chocolate and wine.”

“Captain’s log. it’s day two of the storm and the crew is getting restless. Snack are running low and the snow is piled high. There has been no contact with the locals for quite some time now. I’m starting to fear for the sanity of the crew if this should continue much longer…”
