Treacherous beauty

Spot the snowman. This weekend’s icestorm left me housebound, but today I drove to my hometown for Christmas.  Some of my relatives near Lansing, Michigan lost their power (estimated restoration: December 28) and one of my nephews had to remove a fallen tree from his yard.

But it sure is pretty.

This photo is of a rest area between Port Huron and Flint.  In the background stands a snowman that travelers erected. It brought a smile to my face.
