Mackinac in November

What a great time to be outside!

November up here on Mackinac Island has been fairly good to us so far. The weather seems much warmer than in past years, which has been great! It makes raking the leaves in my front yard all the more merry, and I hope the nice weather keeps up for a few more days because I’m still not done raking…

One of the nice things about this time of year is that the sunsets seem to become more interesting. I’m not sure why, but the skies just end up producing much more pink and purple colors that make it seem so unique, especially over our beautiful Lake Huron. In the summer, whenever I close the shops for the night, I would always take the long way home and ride my bike through downtown and around the boardwalk, just so that I could catch that sunset… it never failed to relax me after an especially long workday. But now that the sun sets much earlier (around 5pm-ish), I try to get outdoors early enough to catch it.


Im trying to enjoy this wonderful weather before this snow starts up, which apparently is happening this Saturday…

On Saturday, we received our first dusting of snow. I was really looking forward to it, but unfortunately it didn’t seem like we got that much on Saturday. I could be speaking too soon on this though… maybe we’ll get more snow overnight? Maybe it’ll snow all day Sunday!? Hopefully it will, as I’m absolutely ready for some colder weather and plenty of beautiful snowfall… we’ll see!

*UPDATE* Woke up to much more snow! It might all melt today, but still, it’s nice waking up to the first winter wonderland of the winter season!
