Mildest Winter I've Ever Seen! Knock On Wood!
As a lifelong resident of Michigan, I have watched winters get milder. I don't know if it's Global Warming or what, but I LIKE IT! People who make a living with snow (plows,ski resorts,winter related retail products, etc.) probably don't! It has helped some folks with their heating bill, and most retailers see more activity when the roads are clear. Salt trucks aren't wearing out the roads(or using taxpayer salt!)and the homeless aren't dying in cold-related incedents. I don't think alot of people realize when something goes well for you, somebody else may suffer the concequences! In Mich. I'm surrounded by more fresh water than anybody else on Planet Earth-do we take it for granted? Probably. There are many of you that live in states where it never snows-do you take it for granted? Probably! Think about the "other guy" today- for a perspective.
