A Very Pure Michigan Question

Having experienced two nice warm days in a row, right after the coldest April since 1895, there's a question on the mind of every resident of the State of Michigan today:

"Can we finally put our winter coats away now?"

Ahhh, yes, remember it well from growing up in Northern Illinois. Had friends in Benton Harbor, and when we'd get 6"~8" of snow they'd get 18"~24".

Over here in Muskegon, from Hesperia. Born in 1960, so I lived through the so called blizzard of '78. I remember fishing for salmon in the White river in Hesperia, during deer season in the second half of November, in high school, couldn't afford waders, so it was blue jeans and tennis shoes for me and my twin brother. That was COLD. I also remember deer hunting at the age of about 16 or 17 when it was to warm for anything but a t-shirt. You just gotta love Michigan. I hate winter, but I can't imagine leaving.

I don't totally put my warm clothes away, I always keep at least a warm jacket and a stocking hat. We do get those nasty cold, rainy days in June.

Here in the U.P. the nights are still in the high 30's to low 40's. So, it is Fall jacket on the rack, but the winter stuff is put away.
Most of the snow is gone too, but not all.
Going quickly though.

I miss my time in the U.P. I still have friends on the shore of Brevort Lake. We would spend a lot of weeks on the lake during the summers, in my school years. I also remember smelt dipping on Marblehead creek, but not for years.
Have a great summer. But after the two weeks are done, it is time for fall again.
