Winter Arrives

Many of my neighbors spent last weekend putting up their lights and holiday decorations ... Mother Nature waited until today to do her decorating in Michigan.

Despite an ice storm that lasted the night and that turned everything into sparkling popsicle versions of trees and cars and roads and the snow that fell steadily all day, the roads weren't too treacherous.

I enjoyed the frosted scenery and white-on-white landscape on the drive home from work this afternoon.

I confess that I have not yet decorated for the holidays ... nor even put away the patio furniture ... after all, we've been celebrating a November that felt more like spring. (I wish I had, at least, put the furniture into storage.)

Oh, my! How right you are, our worlds looked very different today! But your pictures are just as beautiful and even more soulful.

A beautiful frosty picture. I grew up in Michigan but haven't lived there for 30 years. I used to love waking up to see the "fairy forest" of iced trees. Jen
