our winter wonderland on ABC Wednesday
One year Michigan license plates read "Winter Water Wonderland;" this slogan has not been repeated. It was claiming too much to call our winters a wonderland. Except now and then, when the sun comes out and the shadows on the snow beckon you, and the deer, down a winter path. Our part of Michigan, the south west corner bordering Indiana, also borders Lake Michigan. And in winter that is a problem. While the lake water is warmer than the air, moisture is sucked up into clouds and gives us, it is rumored, as many cloudy days as Seattle. We all know it to be true as our spirits sag, until one day the sun comes out and the wonderland is back and winter woes are whooshed away for awhile. Well, at least we have now passed the shortest day! Can spring be far away?
Be sure to take some time an visit ABC Wednesday for many more explorations of W.
