Get a Grip Michigan!

Published April 14, 2018 by Angela

It is April 14th, the middle of April, nearly a month beyond the start of Spring, and we are under a Winter Storm Warning. It is non-stop raining right now, with temperatures dropping below freezing later this afternoon, and then the freezing rain begins. They are predicting up to an inch of ice by tomorrow 😦 Which for myself means, as soon as it starts freezing, I am not leaving the house.

I am really hoping we do not lose power, but flashlights and batteries are good to go. I thought by now I would be cleaning up the leaves out of my yard and planting new flowers and shrubs.

After 11 weeks of being in my house with a broken ankle, I am well beyond ready for some sunshine, and warm, fresh air! In the meantime, I have a blanket I need to finish crocheting, a book to finish reading, and a paint-by-number that hasn’t had any attention in a couple weeks!

Some of my favorite flower photos! Has Spring sprung for you yet?

Autumn in West Michigan

Gales Pond: Hart, Michigan.

If you ever try to find this place, good luck. This is year two of me trying to get there, and Google maps has not been updated since 2012. Except it calls it Gates Pond. Literally took my vehicle down some nerve-wracking two-trails.
