Snowy Side Of Life

Good morning friends.
This morning as I write this,
I have to deal with snow and ice on the roads.

Last year we had a very abnormal winter
here in Michigan
with no snow and ice.
Although some folks may not like snow and ice,
we need it here to protect our waterways.
Seeing this ice flowing down is a welcoming sight for us. 
The snow and ice help the water not evaporate.
Because we had no ice the whole winter last year
the water level in our big river dropped 2 feet.
Come stroll with me through one of our many river parks.
This lighthouse was a navigation light used by many
freighters in the early days.

Not much activity right now... 

But our five river parks are booming with folks
enjoying our St Clair River in the Summer.

To the left of the trees is the ferry which
crosses over to Sombra Ontario Canada.
The river is so calm this morning...
just wish it was not that cold.

Winter Icy Blessings To All
