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.

Cottages 8 and 9

Front yard

Not so nice?

Today was one of those days when you wish you didn’t have to go out. No, that’s not true. Today was the perfect day for someone like me.  The kind of day that makes you wish you were inside with a book and some tea or hot chocolate and some cookies or whatever sounds good.
We had one of those ugly January thaws with ugly, dirty snow – yahooooo

Elberta looking down M-22

Frozen Betsie Bay in Elberta


Too cold for Thursday market today 🙂

The bay is almost completely frozen now

Frankfort’s north pier with its frozen rocks

There you have it and now on to that pot of hot chocolate enhanced with
a tiny bit of Meyer’s Rum, heehee :mrgreen:
