A true Michigan winter

big snowLet’s just say the picture is an exaggeration. But we’ve had a very good Al Gore inspired winter in Michigan.

It started in November and it has stayed until now. Non-stop cold, lots of snow, few warm weather breaks, and a lot of storms.

I love winter. I love snow. I really like driving around after a fresh heavy snow. I love everything about it.

For the last several years lifelong Michigan resident have told us, “These winters aren’t like we used to have.” Well, those same people are now saying, this is just like we used to have.

I want to give perspective on the snow to people outside Romeo. We’ve got about 18 inches of snow in our yard and on the roof of our house.  Along our driveway, where we’ve piled up snow from shoveling it’s about chest high. (3-4 feet?) As the snow was melting today with the warm temperatures I was out digging out the downspouts out of the ice and snow. The main one was buried under 5-6 feet of slushy snow… I never found it.

We love winter weather. And we’re happy to be surviving a “real Michigan winter” here in Romeo.

  1. This is more like the Michigan winters I remember as a kid and even as a teen. Been a while since we have had this much snow for a sustained period of time.

    I don’t mind the snow and I do like driving around after a nice snowfall, but I could do without the freezing cold temps.
