The Drive

Well we were able to find a shoehorn big enough to assist us in packing our car. What a job! We left our home about 9:15 a.m. last Wednesday. It was 54 degrees. As we drove north we watched as the temperature dropped and the rain mixed with sleet and snow. Finally, the rain was all heavy, wet snow.From Gaylord north it was like January. The heavy snow dripped from the evergreens and barren trees along the roadside. It was like being in a snow globe. The snow fell in huge, white, flakes across our windshield. Total accumulations were from 4-10 inches of the heavy, white stuff. But the roads remained wet and a little slushy. This was a first for us… driving up in heavy snow in April. We arrived in Mackinaw around 1:30. The plumber had turned on the water and now it was time to get ready for another season.
Take a look at these wintry pictures and see what month they remind you of.
