skywatch friday

Last week a posted a photo from a past January trip to Cancun, this week a photo of why I wish I was in Cancun again right now. As lovely as winter can be here in Michigan, it was -9 when I got up today and when it’s that cold you just don’t want to leave the house. I did step out to take my SkyWatch photo though, now I think I’m going to go drink a pot of hot coffee and defrost my toes by the fire!

Winter is the time for comfort,  for good food and warmth,  for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire:  it is the time for home. ~Edith Sitwell

  1. Beautiful capture! It’s freezing here, too. -10 when I got out of bed this morning.

    You are a braver soul than I am. I haven’t yet ventured outside.

  2. Beautiful picture, thank you so much, and thanks for dropping by my blog and the comment.

  3. Don’t you just love this icy cold Michigan weather we’ve been having? Thank goodness it’ll be back into the 20’s tomorrow. Wow, can’t believe I am actually happy about it being in the 20’s…

    Anyhow, this is a very lovely picture (even though I’m tired of looking at the snow). 🙂

  4. Beautiful shot and I can almost feel how cold it is there! It’s warm here, but Cancun sure would be nice anyway…

  5. It might have been cold but there was still sun! It is -25(ish) when I took my picture this morning from the comfort of my car. Great pic!

  6. Oh Lilli—It does look cold. My blog tomorrow talks about “our” cold—which is nothing compared to yours.


  7. A beautiful capture – although it is so cold outside!
    Thanks for your visit and have a nice weekend!
    Greetings from Vienna.

  8. I am glad you braved the cold to get this. It is beautiful.

    We are warmer at 5° this morning…I had to go out in it…ugh!

  9. We are sharing the arctic blast right now but I suspect you get more lake effect snow than we do here in Chicago. What a fabulous shot – I hope you enjoyed the hot coffee 🙂

  10. The snow’s so smooth – it rarely gets like that here. What made the track – a sledge, or a snow clearing machine?
