Something about the best laid plans of mice and men???
Cindy had put SO much thought and heart into the float for the Manteo Christmas parade which was to have been this morning. And as I told you, Dan had even agreed to wear a stuffed fish on his head while driving the truck that pulled the float (which was a BIG thing for him to agree to, the fish I mean, not driving the truck, but Cindy is a card and Dan and I feel we "click" with her so she convinced him!), but the weather did not cooperate. It has been another windy, rainy day. I feel that for every 2 days of "good" weather we have 5 days of rainy weather.
And it is getting depressing. Dan doesn't deal well being stuck inside and he doesn't deal well with gloomy days to begin with. I sure hope that the weather changes pretty soon!!! This isn't exactly what we'd expected and everyone here says that this is the wettest season they can remember in a LONG time. Heck, even Dallas (where we will be heading towards at the end of January) had snow!!
Dan is watching a show on the PBS type station about snowmobiling! Hmmmm...do ya think he's gonna miss grooming??? I KNOW he will for a while and I KNOW he will miss plowing all that snow at our business...especially since he is so tired of rain.
Not much more than that for now!
Any readers in Grand Rapids, Michigan...enjoy all that snow you got!!

- A long time ago, I was a child. (I started out as Cathy First from Colon, Mi.) For the past several years I’ve been an adult. A lot of things went on between those two stages of life; probably no more or no less than anyone elses. My husband and I moved to “da U .P” from southern Lower Michigan several years ago (yes we were trolls at one time). We owned and operated and operate Clementz’s Northcountry Campground and Cabins just north of Newberry, Michigan until May 2015. We have grown kids and grandkids (who all live downstate). My passion is life and all that Nature has to offer us and trying to photograph it in unique ways. Our intention in life is to see all that Nature has to offer us. We hope that you will be a part of our adventures as we cruise through our lives together. Come back often!
