Winter Storm Bruce

We woke up this morning to 4-5″ of wet heavy snow.  If nobody had to drive in it, it would be pretty.Well, even then it is still pretty.  Here’s a few pictures for all my southern/warm weather friends.

Sleeping Bear in the Winter

Hello.  I’m finally back.  Sorry for being gone for so long.  Today I took a trip from Interlochen to Sleeping Bear Dunes.  I’ve been there in the spring, summer, and fall, but not really much in the winter. However, before I even got out if Interlochen, I crossed the Betsie River that flows from Duck Lake into Green Lake.  I love the way the river […]

Snow in the Back Woods

Well, the groundhog has rendered his decision; six more weeks of winter.  Around here, that would be a good thing, only 6 more weeks.  But, who are you going to trust with your weather forecast, the weatherman, or a groundhog? After a very mild January, we got snow again.  It wasn’t a lot of snow, but enough to make everything white and clean again.  I […]

Three Days in the Woods

Last time I wrote, I showed the woods behind my house in a heavy fog.  Today, I’ll show more or less the save view on two other days. Here is the foggy view.   Then, the snows came.   And the sun came out the next day.   So many different views depending on the day.

First Snow, then Sunshine

We’ve been under a Winter Weather Advisory for the last couple days.  We have had very cold temperatures with wind chills near -10 degrees, but not so much snow.  What snow we got was very fine.  But, this morning the sun came out and it was beautiful.  Here are a few pictures from our back yard.

Winter has come

We’ve made a couple trips up to OCC this “winter” and still haven’t been able to cross country ski.  Well, there may have been enough snow on New Year’s Day, but we had some chores to take care of and didn’t get out.  I made the trip up again this weekend and saw that the lake is frozen over.  I’ve taken several photos from this […]

Winter Morning

It has been far too long since we’ve been up to Duck Lake.  Last time was to see some of the spectacular fall color.  Now, it is winter.  There is about 6″ of snow on the ground and it hangs on every tree.  There is a rim of ice on the quiet bays of the lake, but waves keep breaking it up further out.  These […]

More Winter Scenes from OCC

Sunday morning came and the sun was a wonderful sight. Blue skies and shadows. Still, Spring will be most welcome this year.

It may be late March, but it isn’t Spring!

Well, the calendar may say Spring, but it doesn’t take long to figure out that winter still has a strong grip on this part of the state. However, there are still many photo opportunities in the area. This was taken Saturday morning from M-137 in Interlochen. I tried to walk down to the water’s edge, but the snow was still knee deep, making walking very […]

Ice Storm

They said it was coming.  Maybe it won’t be as bad as they say.  Well, it did come, and it could have been a lot worse.  We didn’t loose power, so we were very lucky in that respect.  On the plus side, there were some great photo opportunities. Click on the images for a larger view. I hope you stay warm and dry, and pray […]
