Snow

Our sailboat was one of the first in the water this year so we are dreaming of summer.
Two steps forward, one step back:

  1. I have to ask.
    Have you any connection to The Scandinavien countries?
    When I look at your photos i often feel at home (= Sweden).

    The weather forecast says risk for snow tomorrow.

    1. I am in the northern tier of states of the United States; Michigan, USA.

      Michigan is big and has 2 peninsulas, surrounded by 3 of the Great Lakes. Winters are long here and our Great Lake fresh water inland seas as well as many smaller fresh lakes figure large in our lives.

      I looked it up. Huh, we are Continental climate classification and I live right on the border of the change to a more severe winter. The wikipedia on Michigan mentions climate where I am: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michigan

      The northern part of Lower Peninsula and the entire Upper Peninsula has a more severe climate (Köppen Dfb), with warm, but shorter summers and longer, cold to very cold winters. Some parts of the state average high temperatures below freezing from December through February, and into early March in the far northern parts. During the winter through the middle of February, the state is frequently subjected to heavy lake-effect snow. The state averages from 30 to 40 inches (76 to 102 cm) of precipitation annually; however, some areas in the northern lower peninsula and the upper peninsula average almost 160 inches (4,100 mm) of snowfall per year.[55] Michigan’s highest recorded temperature is 112 °F (44 °C) at Mio on July 13, 1936, and the coldest recorded temperature is −51 °F (−46 °C) at Vanderbilt on February 9, 1934.

      Me again; our winters are long and dark and have a lot of snow and my beloved Lake Michigan freezes BUT she keeps us warm with Lake Effect.

      I look at Swedish blogs and am drawn to the area as it seems similar BUT your winter days are even shorter as your summer days even longer, no?

    1. I think I might be on a similar globe ‘parallel’ to Bavaria. I assume you are at a higher elevation though. I should get out the maps. Mother Nature teases us so with ‘thinking about spring’ ‘might be spring’ ‘looking like spring’ ‘HA HA, I fooled you again! Have some more snow!!’.
