I was checking the weather this morning and clicked over to this article on the National Weather Service website:
Will Lake Michigan Freeze Over?
It has a gorgeous satellite photo of the partly-frozen lake, obscured by clouds on the eastern edge. (We see the underside of those clouds a lot all winter.) The article also has photos taken from the snowy beach looking out onto the icy lake. There will be no ice skating out there, I can tell you that!
Then I found this cheerful article:
Seasonal Snowfall Totals as of January 24
That was six days ago - there has been more snow here since then. I'm already in the 105 inch zone. Can I have three cheers for the snowblower?
