I am one of the weirdos who actually likes living in Michigan, USA.
My husband thinks I’m nuts.
But, really,what’s not to love?
Forests, The Great Lakes, and our beautiful Mackinaw bridge.
And let’s not forget:record unemployment, never-ending road construction, and bizarre weather patterns!
Two days ago it was 50+ degrees outside (were talking heat wave for Michigan), yesterday came the snow and boy did it snow!
Today it is freezing rain and snow mixture.
Freezing rain, for those who live in places where the sun is always shinning, is sorta like ice crystal cement when it attaches itself to your car’s window shield.
You can’t just scrape it off , you got to chip it off, the defrost setting on the car does help some, but, still it isn’t much fun freezing your hindquarters off as you chip away.
Every year when this stuff hits my husband seriously thinks about leaving the state.
A quite man, usually, but inclement weather always makes him grumpy.
In fact the only thing that makes him rave more is politics, so I have banned him from CNN.
I can’t ban him from bad weather, however, so the grumbling is about to begin and will last until the spring thaw.
Which in Michigan could be in June.( Slight exaggeration)
So what’s the weather like where you are? Do you get the winter grumpies?
