Here comes the sun

I've been complaining a lot about the snow lately. Usually, once it starts in Michigan it's a long, gloomy, snowy time. But, we do get some sun occasionally. I just happened to catch it before it quite got below the horizon tonight.

snow sucks, sun's nice. If you dont look at the snow topped roofs, it kinda looks like fall:) I've been missing summer since about early November. I'm ready for the summer now please.

Chia, I'm glad the pink clouds made you feel happy.

Susie, thanks. I was running late, it was freezing outside, but I had to take that picture. It was just to beautiful to miss.

Blogaholic, I'm ready for summer too.

Eclectic, thanks. Right on the ball there at number 6. LOL

Jess, please enjoy vicariously. :-)

That's my sis - unafraid to show a little pink.

What?

That is one thing I noticed about Boston and MN right away, it may be cold as heck but BOY are the winters SUNNY!

I think the place with the gloomiest, grayest winters is Cleveland, hands down. bleck. I couldn't beLIEVE how much worse it was than Indiana and Chicago.

Sunsets, gotta love um. Very pretty pictures.

Mr B, yes I should've done a play on the song name. Oh well, the part about "it's been a long, cold, lonely winter" already applies. Even if it is still (technically) fall.

Danielle, I used to think that winter was gloomy everywhere. Then, one winter, we had some contracters at work who were helping us change our software over. They were from the Denver area. They couldn't believe how gray it was all the time. I haven't been to Cleveland in the winter. Sounds like I don't want to.

August, thanks! I always like pretty sunsets. But when it's been gloomy forever they take on a special meaning.

Well, just don't let the sun, go down on you. (Hey, quit being naughty.)

Down, at the Sunset Grill.

I like that, Eclectic! Actually, my favorite breakfast spot here in town almost has that name. It's called the Sundance Grill.

Beautiful!

I always get frustrated when a sunset like that happens over the city rather than over the ocean, or over a lovely mountainscape. It's just WRONG, ya know?

Blogger JD's Rose said...

Are you and Bucky really related? Or am I just being blonde again?

Wed Dec 21, 05:16:00 AM  
Blogger Squirl said...

Ern, this particular one is over Lake Michigan. And the ones I take from home are over the Grand River. Does that help any at all?

Kylz, yes we are. I guess we just assume that everyone knows we're sisters. I tried to bring her up right but there's just no handling some kids sometimes. :-)

My word verification is ghrig. A Grand Haven car, right?

Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Kylz, you got Squirl to admit she and I are related! I usually have to give her cash for that.

Ella, you should really pop by more often. You and I can discuss the corn weasels...

Pretty pretty!

Hiya Squirl--my sister added a variation to the chocolate cookies that will work with no coconut...try them and let me know!

Hugs to you--and MERRY CHRISTMAS if I don't chat with you sooner....

bhgdrhhd--huh?

Blogger Squirl said...

Bucky, what can I say? It's the holiday season and I'm feeling kinda generous.

I'll see if I can get Ella's e-mail for you.

Effie, I'll have to get over there and check it out.

Hugs and a big ol' Merry Christmas back to you, too, hon!

Bucky, if we disgust the corn weasels they may all run away, vacating a vital niche in our ecosystem.

Wed Dec 21, 01:17:00 PM  
Blogger Bucky Four-Eyes said...

Ella - And it's all about the niche, innit? Mmmmm, weasel niche...

I Love winter sunsets, they at least here tend to be pink. These are lovely.
Oh and way down on the list. ;) I can't remember the number.

Well, at least it looks warm and pink and toasty.

Wed Dec 21, 06:59:00 PM

Nina, thanks, I like that pink, too. LOL on the number.

Kranki, they feel much warmer now that I'm inside looking at the pictures. That wind chill made if feel frigid out there.

You can only influence them to a certain age, and then you have to let them make their own decisions. It's ok, we don't blame you!

hehehe. I'm laughing my ass off.

Kylz, thanks for not blaming me. Everyone seems to be glad she turned out the way she did anyway!

Judy, thank you. You have a very Merry Christmas, too!

I read about your little escapade to Marquette gone bad. Soo sorry. Must tell you though, Cadillac is the highest point in the state and you would have been out of there within an hour. Gaylord and Munising areas seem to get hit hard...the beauty of it all?...driving out of it happens!

Nice pics by the way...I'll have to get the ones I took in Marquette onto my blog. you missed some beautiful snowy weather there...!
My 87 Audi 4000CS Quattro makes it fun to drive in too! don't the Jettas handle well?

Ladybug, I tried to answer you this afternoon but Blogger (or my internet) was being a poop.

A very Merry Christmas to you and your family, hon!

Hi, DP, our going was really slow because everyone was having trouble on the road. Later I'd heard that the day before we went they had closed the bridge. If we'd left a day earlier we wouldn't have been able to get up there anway. I'm glad you were able to make it.
