NOTE: Today’s header is compliments of Jill Sawatzki. It shows how hard the wind was blowing last weekend on the island.
Jill made it home on Monday and downloaded a ton of photographs so I’d have another day of snow pictures to post. I’m just going to put these up with captions.
Driving north from Lansing, MI to Mackinac Island, Jill saw lots of snow and icy roads.
There were still a few bicycle-riders pedaling around downtown Friday afternoon, when Jill, Diane, and Bonnie arrived.
At the Christmas Bazaar, Trish Martin's handpainted Mackinac Island tree ornaments were selling like crazy!
Hand-carved reindeer - another "must-have" from the Christmas Bazaar. These were made by Dr. Karen, the resident physician at the Mackinac Island Medical Center.
Being from the North Pole, Santa felt right at home on Mackinac Island Friday afternoon!
Saturday night on Main Street.
The Chippewa Hotel and the Pink Pony - no one's home, but they left the lights on!
"Who moved the water?"
Snowmobiles line Market Street outside the Christmas Bazaar.
Yes, there is a snowplow on the island. When snow falls in feet instead of inches, it is a necessity.
That’s all I have for now. I probably won’t post anything else to this site until Monday, Dec. 14. But you never know! I know Jill has more pictures, and I hear a BIG snowstorm – a blizzard is rumored – is heading for the island. So, you might want to check back in a few days. God bless.
