Winter is beautiful in Southwest Michigan
These are some of the landscapes as we took a drive through some areas not far from where we live today. The man driving, is of course, my hubby.......who is my wintertime chauffer and will drive me where I need or want to go (when he is not working) when the roads are too bad for me to feel comfortable driving on them.
Most of the photos are of frozen Lake Michigan. The large humps are frozen waves covered with several inches of snow after they froze. Some people are brave enough to walk out on these frozen chunks of waves, but many have gotten in some serious problems because of their foolishness and had to be rescued by the Coast Guards. We just admire the beauty of them from afar and stay safe. Today while we were there, we did notice two people that were quite a ways out on the ice. We left and they were still there, I hope they remained safe and dry............with Lake Michigan and the weather here, one can never tell what might happen next.
