My bff on top of L.L.
The barn. Heading out to a basketball game in a snow storm….but no one that lives in northern Michigan would call getting 10 inches of snow in a few hours a storm.
It’s easy to forget the sky is blue during the winter.
I took a run through the woods and up to the orchard. The crusty layer made it slow and the most difficult run ever. Like my finicky picky eater children say, “Crust KILLS!”.
Jodi’s back yard.
Bluff close-ups… so many acres of untouched snow.
My tracks on the bluff. The snow builds up along the edge… I ran over the bluff hoping to avalanche myself down the huge hill, but the snow held. I was disappointed. I was hoping for the adventure of the fall and an easy way to the bottom of the trail.
Over-looking Jodi’s yard and the lake… It’s the swath of white beyond the pine trees.
The sticky bug card is still hanging in the orchard.
We had lots of time for fun and jackassery, a specialty of my friend and I.
My bff on top of Lake Leelanau. (“My bff on top of L.L.” sounds provocative and I like it.)
We went into town for a festival. Most of the bike racks downtown were in use despite the ten inches of fresh snow. Bikers don’t mess around in Michigan.
Bench-high snow. Bikes on both sides of the street.
I spotted this cat in a fox hat. Jodi and I ran him down and asked to get a picture with him. He nonchalantly said “Sure, just a minute” while picking up his dog. He was taking her to the car to warm up. He was booking down the sidewalk to get her out of the cold.
Carting a kid in a sled. Strollers are useless at this festival.
I was too busy having fun to take out my big camera and I stuck to using my phone for pictures.
