Weather report: Bright, beautiful, and blankety-blank cold

Posted on February 7, 2010


Babs Young inspected the Bay and found it icing up nicely.  She wrote: It was a beautiful day in the North. Grand Traverse Bay was sporting lots of color and texture. After temperatures down around zero last night, ice is forming quickly.

I’ll say it’s been cold.  My dishwasher detergent froze in the cabinet under the sink last night.  But it’s been sunny and gorgeous so we’re all in a good mood.  Who knows, maybe by the end of the month we can snowshoe across the Bay to Northport. Meanwhile, I’m leaving the cabinet doors open and hoping my water line doesn’t freeze.

Every week photographer Babs Young captures moments in northern Michigan, and every week she sends one to Torch Lake Views just for you. You can find more of her photos at the Babs Young Photo Archives and on her Blue Heaven Flickr photostream.
