Winter in West Michigan…

Published March 5, 2016 by Angela

…can stop anytime now. Like today, for instance. I do not do good in Winter, and it gets worse every year.

Yesterday I had such an emotionally stressful day, on so many levels,  that I sat in my bath this morning, crying uncontrollably, for 20 minutes. Then I had to go to a funeral. 

Before it got to that point, though, I thought some camera therapy would help with the sadness and depression I woke up with. 

I was wrong, but here are the results of my well-intended efforts.

   
   

The First Day Of Winter In West Michigan!

Published December 21, 2014 by Angela

I was certainly expecting some snow by the first day of Winter in West Michigan, considering right after Halloween we had a week of horrible storms, several inches of snow, and enough Blizzards that schools and businesses were closed.

So I was up early, as usual, and since I have not been out lately to get any pictures, I figured it would be a good day to go see what I could find.

It was freezing cold out, literally at 32 degrees F, and I am pretty sure I destroyed one of my favorite pairs of shoes when I was looking through the lens, and not at the water, and the waves nearly knocked me off my feet when they came roaring in well above my ankles.

I will definitely be wearing the rain boots the next time I venture out this Winter. Once the snow is significant enough, the roads down at the lake are all closed and I will not be able to get anywhere near it. There are definitely both ups, and downs, about living less than 10 minutes from Lake Michigan.

The water is colder than you could even imagine!

Hoping your Sunday is warm, and full of Blessings and Happiness! I plan on doing not a whole lot more than reading 🙂
