Photo of the Day: Snowy Blue Water Road


Today’s Photo of the Day is courtesy of snowy Blue Water Road. I took this pic as we were heading west towards Center Road. Don’t worry – Tim was driving.

Brys Estate Vineyard & Winery is on the right, and you can see Nancy Heller’s house at the top of the hill on the right.

Apparently, we’ve skipped right over the holidays and the rest of 2019, and now find ourselves smack dab in the middle of January. Or maybe February.

It does seem early, especially with so much snow already, not to mention temps in the 20s (though I heard it’s supposed to warm up this weekend, which is good because I’m hoping it’ll be warm enough for Tim to fix the MSU student’s car so I can get my Subie back when she’s home for Thanksgiving!).

But as we all know, it’s not unusual to have snow in November (Snowvember?). In fact, about this time last year, I posted a photo of the first snow in a vineyard on Island View Road…
