Michigan, My Michigan

It's Michigan all over out here. Yesterday the sun shone for a bit in the afternoon and the temperature was nearly 40 degrees. By morning we had two to three inches of snow on the ground. So it's up at 6:30 - before the light of day has even cracked the horizon - and out shoveling all this wintery goodness.

Then - about 24 hours after that little spot of sunshine - we have rain. Driving sheets of rain. And thunder. And lightning. A full blown thunderstorm. In February. With three inches of snow on the ground.

And the people who know such things tell us that by Friday night we'll be lucky if the thermometer hits 20 degrees.

Michigan. Come stay for a week or two and you'll pretty much experience all four seasons.
