Why I Love Winter in Michigan!

I looked out my bathroom window this morning and could not believe my eyes.  It had snowed A LOT last night.  And now the sun is shining brightly, the sky is this amazing, cold, blue color that let’s you know that it is winter

The first couple of pictures were taken out the upstairs window…( I know, through the screen. It’s freezing cold, I can’t open the window and take out the screen)

See on top of the cans?  From nothing at all yesterday afternoon to this:

By our recycling station – looking out to M-22

The “Madonna tree”  in front of cottages 2 and 3.  This tree got it’s name from a dear friend and guest from Delaware. Next time you are here, look at it’s trunk and you will see why.

We have some interesting skies here in Michigan.  I wish I knew how to take GOOD pictures of the sky.

This morning as I was messing around with my vacancy/no vacancy sign for the umpteenth time, I saw this:

Although it looked pretty dark and scary for a few minutes, the clouds went away and the sky is now a brilliant, lazy blue.
It rained hard last night. That’s how we like it. It is perfect for sleeping and in the morning everything has a fresh, clean new face and the guests can go and enjoy the beach or the dunes or the shops or, or, or…  🙂

And this evening this is what I saw in the north western sky

Oh look there’s a light on in cottage 7’s kitchen 😉
