Late

Car with frost and scraper on the windshield.#@%&! I’m late
No time to shower…or shave
It’s cold…put on 14 layers of warm clothing
No breakfast…or coffee
I can still make it on time
Out the door
#@%&! Frost on the windshield

Summer’s Gone

A field of wildflowers gone to seed.

Wildflowers have mostly gone to seed and the brilliant, lush greens of summer have given way to the dusty, drab greens and browns of early autumn. How did this happen so quickly? June was just yesterday – wasn’t it?

The Montague Flood – 2018

After several days of heavy rain, Twisters Ice Cream shop in Montague is bounded by standing water to the south across the bicycle trail.

Butternut Creek rises with the rain, but quickly drains into the White River, which empties into White Lake. The water level in the Lake is 3 to 4 feet higher than it was two years ago. The beach on Lake Michigan, about 7 miles to the west, is almost non-existent.
