Well, this is what we woke up to, just as promised. We were completely unprepared (I had checked the weather a few days previous and the snow hadn't been predicted yet). We had to make a stop at Walmart to pick up a few items of warm clothing. At first it was kinda funny, but then as the drive grew more treacherous through the mountains, it became really scary.
Uh yeahhh that's a semi.
In case you can't tell, it was extremely difficult to control the car. I WAS TOTALLY FREAKED OUT. When we finalllly got there, I was able to kind of start to relax after being clenched and panicky for a good few hours. Phew.
Watching some awesome tv helped.
The next morning we woke up late, made a big breakfast, and decided to venture out.
It was a beautiful sunny day, and the snow had already completely melted on the roads, including the uphill driveway that I had to push the car up the previous evening. Our place was a townhouse with a jacuzzi (yay). There was also a rec building with an indoor heated pool (empty since we were there on the off season), arcade games, wireless internet, and THIS BEAUTY:
Nothing like the sweet sounds of a beautiful instrument.
Then we took a drive through the mountainous country, and stopped for dinner at a local townie restaurant- Chet's Place!
I tried the turkey dinner special, not expecting much, but it was DELICIOUS. And their food was so ridiculously cheap.
I wanna convince Chet to open an Ann Arbor location.
Next up- we hike up a river!
