Anticipating Spring

I have been trying to think of something riveting to say in the past several days, and I'm coming up pretty dry. It's February in Michigan. Nothing happens in February in Michigan. The skies are usually gray, the weather is unpredictable, and the "thaw" that inevitably happens late January/early February is merely a tease. You'll take the dog out for a morning run in your spring jacket one morning, and schools are closed due to ice and snow 24 hours later.

I've experienced a few Februaries in various climes, and there's nothing quite like Michigan. But don't take MY word for it...see for yourself!!

February in California...

Another February in California...

February in Hawaii...

February in Tucson...

And........................................

February in Michigan!!!!
HAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!

cruel, cruel woman! I really didn't need to see So. Cal and Hawaii Februarys. We just had our thaw and then 4 inches of fresh snow yesterday.

What a contrast--I think you have bi-polar weather!! (At least it makes you laugh). But then you do have one blessing: you do not have to be concerned about water rationing. We have finally had enough rain to raise the water level in the reservoir to 50%, and are only 10 inches of rain below normal for this date. So, there you go. Love finding a new posting and love you, CA Mommy
