The View Keeps Changing
[A note about tomorrow: I won't have a Michigander Monday profile for you to read. Sorry about that. There's no shortage of great folks to profile, but I've been neck-deep in a couple of projects lately and neglected to send out enough interview invitations. But MM will be back soon.]
February has a reputation for being a fairly dismal month - and it's not an entirely undeserved rep. But there's a real beauty to the snow and the outdoors at times -- a beauty that changes rapidly.

But then came another fog, thicker than the first:
All of this in the span of about an hour or less.
Sometimes, when you take the chance to stop and look, the view can be amazing.
