All Fudged Up's Puppy Mal Shares Winter on Mackinac Island

Being a little white dog is tough during winter time on Mackinac Island. Let's just say there's a lot of snow to get lost in. The last few winters have been mild and the islanders have worried whether the traditional ice bridge would form. The ice bridge is when ice forms on Lake Michigan thick enough for snowmobile riders  to actually ride from the peninsulas to the island and back. Tradition holds that we mark the pathway with Christmas trees.

No worries this winter as the polar vortex has brought extra cold temperatures everywhere. Snow or not the fudge shop is open. The main tourist season is over, but there is still plenty to do at the Historic McMurphy Inn and Fudge shop. For a pup like me, the best thing is to wear my pink sweater and my best snow boots. Even better is to curl up next to the lobby fireplace and take in the smells of fudge as Allie works on new recipes and Frances knits blankets for the newborns at the local hospitals.
What do you do to make it through six more weeks of winter?

  1. We're running out of places to put the snow in Threadville, too...

  2. You can see the puppy and see he's black eyes, but it's better to keep him in home

    1. Hi Yassine, when the snow is over Mal's head it gets difficult to see his eyes. LOL. Is there snow where you are?

  3. Willow, there must be some way we can transport the snow to the drought ridden parts of the southwest, don't you think?

  4. We haven't gotten much snow here, this winter, so far but with six weeks of winter still before us, I'm sure we'll get at least 1 or 2 prize winning storms and more snow. As for making it through six weeks of winter, its just take things day by day. Read, watch some TV and may be do some crafts.
