A Gray Day

It has been a mild winter here in southwest Michigan so far.  What little snow we’ve had is all but gone after some unseasonably warm temperatures (upper 40s!) and a bit of rain.  Where there is a bit of snow we have some fog.  I couldn’t resist going out and taking a few photos for you today.  These were taken in my backyard.

There is some precipitation coming this week, but we will likely be on the rain side of the front.  But, Interlochen should be getting more snow.  We hope to be up there next weekend for some cross country skiing.

I have to remember that although the weather this weekend has felt like March, it is still January.  I’m sure there is more winter to come.

      thanks. I love the way those drops hold on. It was such a light mist yesterday that the drops held on pretty well.

    Great photos, Mark. The woods almost look like OCC.
