Five Reasons Why Michigan May Not Suck

I found this post in my drafts file. Not to say that it magically appeared there or that my blog site was hacked. I did write it. Well, I started writing it and then realized that winter is coming.

1. Because yesterday morning on my way to the grocery store I saw a pack (gaggle? flock? flight? flightless? herd? pride?) of wild turkeys crossing the road.

2. The speed limit on most highways here is 70mph. I'm sure that doesn't sound like much but when you combine it with the fact that budget constraints have decreased the amount of highway patrols in force, this works out great for me and my

3. Um... at this point I'm kind of struggling.

4. Fuck it.

5. I can't think of anything else right now but I'm in a good mood and I don't want to ruin it.

Seriously people, it starts snowing here around Halloween.

I'm from central Ohio where it's typically 10-15 degrees warmer and doesn't snow that much.
The part of Michigan where I live is gorgeous. The lakes are beautiful as is Michigan in general ('cept Detroit), but this will be my 4th winter here and the winters here are not pleasant.
It snows nearly every day.

I'm interested to see how my girlfried from the south handles her first winter here. I'm in the most consistent snowbelt in the lower peninsula, but I love snow. I'm weird.

Chris - I've been to Boyne City in January for work once. You know the vet clinic across the street from the park? It's brutal but also beautiful. If she's at all outdoorsy and ski-liking she'll be fine.
