Snow, Sun and then more Snow!

My trip to Upper Michigan is everything I expected it to be plus more.  Snow, snow and more snow.  More than I ever saw in the five years I lived in upstate New York.  Definitely more than Virginia.

Thursday morning my sister and I decided to head up to Traverse City, MI to do some shopping.  We woke up to the first sunny day I've seen in about 2 1/2 weeks.

 Sunshine, blue skies and frozen snow on the trees and ground were a magnificent sight of God's handiwork!

The roads for the most part were like this.  The temperature was 10F degrees when we started out and probably rose up to 12F degrees by the time we headed back home.

I'm so impressed with the way this picture taken from the passenger seat I was sitting on.  What a view, wouldn't you say?  This is Rt.31 headed to Traverse City, from Manistee, MI.

On our way back, my sister made sure I saw the same herd of buffalo I saw on our last trip up here.  Sure enough, they were there!  I was so excited!

This is the sign leading into our LRBOI reservation.  So colorful against the beautiful white snow.

This is Moe and I.  Moe has been my buddy since I arrived in Michigan.  I sure am going to miss him when I head back to VA.

Today the sun hid behind the clouds.  We also had white outs and blizzard like conditions.  It's a good thing we drove to Traverse City yesterday when we did.  Who knows how long these blizzard like conditions will last??  Oh, and the weatherman is predicting another "Polar Vortex" (again) for the next couple of days!  Yay!!  :)

Enjoy your weekend, I hope it's warm where you are and remember to savor every moment!!
