I blogged yesterday that I would take a few pics and post them when it became light outdoors. Four hours later, when it was not dark, but cloudy, the wind picked up, all the snow blew off the trees,, but it was beautiful!! Picture cotton balls stuck to branches.. Sorry it did not stick, but we are not sorry one bit. We only got about two inches of snow, but it is the thick, heavy stuff.. great for snowballs, and snowgals, but horrible for driving.
A poster below said that she drove From Elkton,MI. That i sin the Thumb of Michigan,, they get very bad storms due to the fact that the winds blow right across that Thumb from Lake Huron. On a map, it is not obvious to out-of-staters, but fierce winds cut across that peninsula and sock it to them. It is almost entirely farmland and small towns, so there are really no breaks, like hills or crags to protect them. No bluffs at waters point to stop the force of water and wind. Kind of like Pebble Beach golf course, but hundreds of miles of it jutting out...
it then turned a lot colder, so I went out in the drifts to fill the bird feeder.. two minutes after I went indoors, little sparrows were all over it!! Poor little guys!!
Today is putzing, baking, scrubbing, etc.. I do not do winter, I have never done it, so indoors is it for me.. a trek to the store and pharmacy yesterday was the biggie,, a whole half mile away..
