Winter weather

Winter weather in Michigan isn't exactly the most blissful thing I've ever experienced.

I'm not one of those folks who hate it so much that I'd rather kill myself or someone close to me in order to escape this parade of gray days with an unbroken string of below-freezing temperatures as far as weather.com can see.

Being from Colorado, however, I do miss the variety. Winter in Denver or Colorado Springs typically means high temperatures that vary, from week to week, from the 60s and even low 70s down to the single-digits and rarely below zero. There are gray days, and clear days with a crystal-blue sky. A little of this, a little of that. Not too much of any one thing.

The whole year, in fact, is packed with variety. Colorado Louis has managed to identify nine seasons in Denver, and his is a very plausible list.

Here in Michigan, it's all 14 degrees, all the time. At least until March!

LOL! I *loved* the "stock show season". Wow, did that bring back memories from when I was a kid. Denver weather is truly something else. With those mountains right there and the Chinook winds you're right -- 70 one day and near zero the next (or vice versa). I think he's got it about right at 9!
