Yesterday was the first day of Spring – and it snowed all day.
That’s Michigan for you.
When I first moved here over 22 years ago, I was told, “If you don’t like the weather, wait fifteen minutes and it will change!” But it didn’t change yesterday, or today – it’s still snowing.
In America we still use Fahrenheit to list temperatures. Our local weatherman yesterday told us that the difference between the temperature yesterday and the temp on the same day last year was an incredible 50 degrees!
Perhaps its time to move . . .
But the news is often dominated by climactic disaster seemingly everywhere else, except mid-Michigan where we live. A few miles south of us was hit by a bad snowstorm a few days ago, while we escaped. “Up north” is often hit, while its quite mild here.
Other states get tornadoes, hurricanes and struggle with drought, none of which have bothered us here (though we have had disasters in other parts of the state).
Lansing, the capital of Michigan, seems protected from those extremes.
So I think we will stay – and watch the news highlighting disasters everywhere else!
