One of the undeniable things about Wisconsin is that on any given trip, any time of year, you must be prepared to experience all four seasons! It is really wonderful for those of us who live in a place like Puerto Rico where we have just one season all year ’round (obviously that would be verano).
But here in Wisconsin, you can have a string of 80 degree days in March (my last trip) and 40 degree days in August (a famous August of a few years ago.) Since I don’t often get to wear my winter clothes in San Juan, it is nice to know that I may always need them here in Wisconsin.
This trip (all 9 days of it so far) I have experienced November (last Friday – It even snowed in N E WI), May (on Sunday) and now February. Today it is 36 degrees, but feels like 28, windy and raining. Thank goodness most dwellings in WI have both air conditioning and heat – you never know which you might need!
But, in all four seasons, Wisconsin is always beautiful. And when it is not beautiful in a “pretty” sense, it is beautiful in an “interesting” sense. You may enjoy these pictures from yesterday (an appropriate season day – sunny and cool enough for a sweatshirt) of Lake Michigan. Of course, the view of the lake is always beautiful in a pretty sense…what was interesting ( I hope you’ll think so too) is that the color of the water of the lake ranged from white, to light blue, to blue-green, to dark blue. It was gorgeous in the afternoon sunshine.
