Powdered Sugar Trees

I loved how the trees looked after our first snowfall - almost like powdered sugar had dusted them. We are headed back up to our log cabin this weekend and snow is in the forecast!

I've been searching the local calendars for holiday events and think small towns always do it best! This Saturday, our family is headed to Grayling's Christmas Walk and Parade. If you would like more information on this event - please contact the Grayling Visitor's Burea at 800-937-8837.

Wow, a good dusting of snow! Up here in the far Eastern UP we, surprisingly, don't get the Lake effect here unless it roars up from Lake Huron. So places like St. Ignace and Sault Ste. Marie can get clobbered and we get a few flurries at most. By the end of winter we've pretty much caught up, but we have this little reprieve early on. All this to say we haven't had even a dusting here yet!
We used to have a cottage near Bear Lake--a real snow belt--and we would come up from downstate to Grayling and see nothing but by the time we got to our cottage we would have to climb huge banks in order to get in. I guess altitude and lake effect decide it all!

Deborah Godin said...

Wow, I think I could (almost) have winter all year long if it always looked this breathtakingly lovely!

Hi Mona - suprised to hear the snow is lighter at the beginning of the year. We are expecting more snow in Gaylord this weekend!

Darla - thank you!

Tina - hoping to capture some good snowy photos of my cabin to make xmas cards! wish me luck!

Deborah - somehow I didn't remember winter being this pretty last year! I think my eyesight has changed... :-)

I love this look too but I am NOT ready for the cold quite yet.

Beautiful! That first one would make a wonderful Christmas card. I can see Season's Greetings written in silver ink across the bottom. :-)

Wow,... you are totally white there. We have had several hard frosts here in the eastern Adirondacks of NY, but only the higher elevations have had actual snowfall.

Magical images. Sleepy and dreamy. I want some hot chocolate and a cozy fire now!

Shellmo said...

Christy - I like the snow - could do without the bitter cold!

2Sweet - Great idea! I am thinking about doing a card w/ my cabin in the snow - hopefully it snows this weekend!

Cedar - I always pictured you guys as always having more snow than us!

Kathie - coming right up! :-)

Oh lovely!!! Despite all my whining about our October snow, it melted and we haven't had any since.

Beautiful pics, as always..

I love how the snow and ice glistens on the trees too. It's so beautiful. Doesn't it seem quieter in the woods when it snows. We have a little park near our home that I love to walk in.

These photos are great! They remind me of Christmas. I'll have to post some of my winter photos soon. Isn't snow wonderful?
