This is our fourth winter in the UP of Michigan, but the first real UP winter that we’ve experienced. I must admit that I am tired of snow. I am also imagining what a wet, sloppy mess this is going to be when it starts to melt. My friend Cat posted at Basset Hound Town yesterday that they had seen a Robin at their house. Hmmm … I’m quite sure there aren’t any Robins around the Upper Peninsula, and won’t be for quite some time. The first picture is our swingset on 12.20.12; the second picture is our swingset on 2.23.13.
Below are some more photos of recent snowstorms in our town and elsewhere in the Upper Peninsula. Last week a state highway (M-28) here in the UP was closed for more than two days because of blizzard conditions.
