Michigan My Michigan

I love Michigan!  The weather here is never boring and is always subject to change. After freezing temps and several inches of snow at the beginning of the month...we enjoyed  balmy temps in the 50's last week.  Call me crazy, but I saw people out and about sporting shorts!   Yeah, we are tough like that!  LOL.
This morning it was -1'....Brrrr. Believe me, I am not complaining.  I have lived in Tucson, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada...No offense, but they were deserts and I missed the changing seasons and landscapes.  Oh, and I really missed the snow!!!
The above photo was taken from my daughter's Facebook page.  (The dashboard of her car.)  Wow...I just had to share it.  6 months ago we hit 100' and this morning it was -1'....Yep, that's 101' colder!!!  Oh, Michigan my Michigan...you may be fickle but you are never boring.
~Blessings Y'all

It's winter here in Michigan
And the gentle breezes blow
Seventy miles an hour
At twenty-five below.

Oh, how I love my Michigan
When the snow's up to your bu** 
You take a breath of winter
And your nose gets frozen shut

Yes,the weather here is wonderful
So, I guess I'll hang around
I could never leave dear Michigan
My feet are frozen to the ground!

Lol. It sounds a lot like Norway.
I agree, never boring, but one need a real fireplace and woolen underwear to survive.

I think that is one of the many reasons we're moving to Montana, gotta have 4 distinct seasons! We were in the mid 70's today, I actually ran the A/C in the car for a bit! That is nuts for January!

'Oh how I wish again, I was in Michigan ''' or so the song goes. How nice to have a change of seasons .. it really makes you appreciate each one as special. Stay warm my friend. Love,

I do know what you mean about not having changing seasons! After 30 years on a tropical island and HOT and HUMID being the only choice I'm loving the season changes here in Japan! BUT, I am glad we don't get it that cold here where we are...without central heat...brrrr!
