First Snow-covering for Northeastern Michigan

I just glanced out the front window to see our first snow-covering for this winter. Usually, Northeastern Michigan gets at least an inch of snow, by the middle of November each year. At least the kids are getting some of that ole white stuff, for their Christmas holiday season! Then, I will start marking the days off on a calendar, until the first day of Spring

We had our first too. Just a little bit that covered the grass. I hope we always get just a little bit, but that hope will be dashed very soon when the big snows come.

Yes, the big snow is just waiting for the best time, to bury us! My photo didn't upload, but here it is!

So far for Michigan, it's not been too bad. The temps will be colder but I'd rather have that than all the snow we usually get the next month or so.

January and February are always the worst months. After that, we're heading towards Spring again!

@kobesbuddy We are supposed to get a couple inches over the weekend. Most won't be in our area, at least that's what they are saying.

Even our forecast lake effect snow didn't materialize. Sure we had some squalls...but nothing that stuck around for more than five minutes. We'll see how long we can keep winter at bay!

We have already had some snow and there is ice on the frozen ground. I like it when the snow is fresh and powdery.

We usually don't get as much snow, where we are located on Tawas Bay. Because of the lake effects, everyone around us gets hammered and we don't usually get hit quite as hard. Once in a while, we get 12-14 inches, in a day or two. Most generally the storms hit full force, all the way around us.

I don't mind winter, like I use to do. Every year, I'd dress in clothes that didn't keep me warm! As an older person, style means little to me any more. Now, I dress in warm attire, to keep from being cold:)

@kobesbuddy I got cold this morning going to church. I have two shirts on, and I'm still cold. I'm drinking a cup of unsweetened hot chocolate - it's good, really, and closed my office door and turned the heater on. Hopefully I'll warm up soon.
