Feels Like Spring… and every little bit helps
The temperature outside is only 21 f., but the sun is shining, ice is melting off the roof and it sure seems a lot better than last week. We are taking it all (especially the melting ice) as a sign. I’m not saying what that sign is just yet (I don’t want to jinx anything), but this could be “it.”
With as long as winter has lasted here, they’ve had more of it farther north in Paradise, Michigan. We drove to Paradise on Thursday and talked with a few locals. The folks we talked with were all two or three feet more tired of winter than us. And it shows.
The reason for our trip was not just to check the stamina for the good people of Paradise, but to see the Tahquamenon Falls in winter. We turned west at the north end of town and followed M-123 about ten miles farther west to the Upper Falls. It was well worth the drive. Lunch at the brewpub was good too.
