I've spent seven winters in New England and two in the Midwest... and I'm STILL amazed when people say they love winter, the snow etc. How? Why? Oh Why?
Her finely-touched spirit had still its fine issues, though they were not widely visible. Her full nature, like that river of which Cyrus broke the strength, spent itself in channels which had no great name on the earth. But the effect of her being on those around her was incalculably diffusive: for the growing good of the world is partly dependent on unhistoric acts; and that things are not so ill with you and me as they might have been, is half owing to the number who lived faithfully a hidden life, and rest in unvisited tombs.

They were beautiful. I liked the vase with the flowers inside.

howdy from another michigander....
I like the winters here, by the way.  There's something about living in a place that actually HAS weather that appeals to me.

I love the Plymouth Ice Festival.  I've gone several times and it's a true joy.

Your pictures are gorgeous! (just like you)  :)

Peace,

  Would you believe me if I told you this formation had naturally formed in my freezer when the ice tray over turned?

GREAT STUFF NADINE!
THOSE PICS TAKE ME WAY BACK WHEN MY OLDER BROTHER 'N SISTER WERE ATTENDING MICHIGAN TECH.(WHICH, FOR U NON-MICHIGANDERS, IS WAY UP IN THE UPPER PENINSULA AT THE END OF THE WORLD) ONE YEAR MOM 'N DAD RENTED A MOTOR HOME IN FEBRUARY AND WE MADE THE 10 HOUR TRIP UP TO TECH FOR THEIR ANNUAL WINTER CARNIVAL....ICE SCULPTURES ALL OVER CAMPUS.  AS U CAN IMAGINE THE COMPETITION AMONG FRATERNITIES AND GROUPS WAS INTENSE SO DETAIL AND SIZE OF THE SCULPTURES WAS TRULY AMAZING.

I WAS NOT AWARE OF THE FESTIVAL HAPPENING IN PLYMOUTH....CONSIDERING OUR WEATHER FORECAST IT LOOKS LIKE THEY WILL BE AROUND FOR A WHILE....LOOKS LIKE A TRIP TO PLYMOUTH NEXT WEEKEND!

GOOD TO KNOW ABOUT ANOTHER "NEIGHBOR" HERE ON THE FORUMS! :)

BE WELL....

It must be one of those weekends because we're having the Winter Carnival in St Paul, MN right now.  Up until the last two weeks, we haven't been cold enough to completely freeze our lakes.  They were actually going to build the ice castle with plastic blocks this year.  I can't believe they were considering this for a January in Minnesota!  BTW, your sculptures over in MI are pretty  :)

Hello Nadine

Great Pictures !!  A woman I work with, has a son that lives up in Michigan. She had shown me some pictures he had taken, just after an Ice storm recently. Actually the pictures were beautiful, really glistening under the sun.

As a resident of Northern Michigan....I  vote to ban winter. I guess it's better than the alternative though.
