Here are some pictures of our day at the beach, Lake Michigan beach that is. Ice heaves, ice encrusted light house, thick ice walk to light house (no way you could get out there), iced beach, iced rocks, way too much ice if you ask me. Even though you can only see ice, there is a lot of sand under all the ice. During temperate times of the year the sand drifts over the beach side road and must be plowed…not unlike the snow that covers that sand in colder times.
Now it is raining and we can hope that does not turn into frain (freezing rain) as we are on the cusp between rain and freezing rain. So, hopefully where ever you are, you might be enjoying some signs that spring is one the way…robins, etc. For now we just say “bring the snow on” because we have a big new snow blower which has already paid for itself….no kidding. The final picture was taken one month ago, on a sunny day, icy, but not what we saw today. Photos were all taken by me…..Carol
