January in Michigan

 

img_0470

The air is gently moving flurries of snow while on the ground and houses and in the trees the day’s accumulation gives a luminosity unseen in summertime.  It’s January in Michigan so this is normal and expected.  The recent thaw tricked us into thinking that Spring was almost here.

It’s been an easy winter so far, but when the snows come, travel is slower and walking can be dangerous.  For the elderly, falling is the number one source of injury. Sometimes I panic when Lake Michigan seems unable to stop churning out what is known as Lake Effect Snow.

This time however, I feel a sense of calm surrender to this bright ambiance I see outside.  It’s the vision of pure whiteness transfiguring my home city in winter.
