Global Warming In Michigan...


We went from neck-breaking ice slicks and a foot of snow to a really, ugly green-brown in about the span of 4 days.. I will take ugly green-brown any day you give it to me in Jan.!!! Butt-Ugly vs. Dangerous Roads.... Butt-Ugly wins! Jan.- Feb. in this State are long,cold, and gray.. It bums folks out, even equaling the mini-economic Depression going on in Michigan! Probably like Nordic or Canadian folk- we value friends, food, and warmth more than ever during these months! Big money is spent in December! Jan. and Feb.- not so much... Fight your winter blues, everyone! Hope all are well... Having posting problem with pictures- sorry!

We are beyond saturated here in Illinois! We were treated with a couple 50-60 degree days that melted our 8+ inches of snow, and then 4 days of RAIN!!

Dana said...

January and February in the midwest would be why SPRING is my favorite season!

Stay warm and stay safe.... homemade macaroni cheese bubbling away in the oven and a chocolate steamed sponge pudding steaming away awaiting a huge blob of homemade icecream :).....

As Marmie says it RAINING here!

Keep your chin up - do some cooking. What's on the menu?

Lynda said...

I think I would have stayed home!

And, here in NC Texas, it is sunny and 58 degrees! Beautiful weather for January 10. But weather patterns are very erratic all over...tomorrow may bring snow and ice! Although it's sunny and mild, the landscape is like you said.....butt-ugly!

Sornie said...

Our 17 inches of snow has dwindled to about 2 and in Minnesota, according to stereotypes, that just isn't right.

As I can attest from my last post..I am over the extreme weather; it sucks!

Hey, I've been having problems posting pictures today as well...

Beth said...

I hate January...can we just wipe it from the calendar?

Annie said...

Do you play a lot of cards in the cold months? That's what I imagine - that and some beer.

Mona said...

Yes I head about the erratic weather condition there!

Ok! you can wish me today...

I remember those Michigan winters all to well, they would never end then it's like a week of spring to boiling ass muggy hot! I feel your pain!!

buffalodickdy said...

marmie- This stuff was really bad! The power of advertising... ever got anything that looked as good as the advertisement?
Rog- I always described the season Spring in Michigan as "Monsoon before Mosquitoes"

Real Live Lesbian said...

I didn't know you were in Michigan. That's where my girl's from! Took my first trip up last July and it was gorgeous in Traverse City!

Here's hoping the pretty green returns mighty soon for you!

Have a great weekend!

meredic said...

Winter here seldom gets beyond an extended rainy season here. As a consequence just a little snow close all the roads in the country.

G-Man said...

Hehehe..
Another Michigander!!
I refuse to use the word..
Michiganian.
Well, almost always..

DutchBitch said...

I am glad I am not suffering from winter blues, yet....

buffalodickdy said...

R.L.L.- Know the area well! When you work up there, they use the saying; "The view of the bay is half the pay..." Been in outside sales forever- all in Michigan! I could be a freakin' tour guide...
meredic- Bleak in winter months is shaped in a broad band around our planet, I can only crab about mine!
G-man-I like how the Youpers-(residents of Upper Pennisula) explain us: Trolls( we live below the Mackinaw Bridge!) or Fudgies(tourists who just come North and go home with famous fudge!)
Dutchie- Hope they never hit you!

Preposterous Ponderings said...

In the last week we have had every season possible here in Ohio!

I am so ready for Summer!

Freezing my titties off today. Brrrrr!

buffalodickdy said...

Prepon- High beam weather, for sure!

Real Live Lesbian said...

You are so right about the view. Her parents live on East Bay on Old Mission Peninsula. Not the worst place in the world to have to visit...especially since we're wine whores! We brought back almost four cases. Insanity!

It's 53 here today, but it just seems cold for some reason. I'm sure you guys would be in t-shirts and shorts! LOL

Jeff B said...

I feel your pain! Cold, gray and wet here in Oregon. That's alright, nothing another 3-4 months won't fix. ICK

CraigNutzzz said...

Ya I got really lucky with the thaw. The timing of the leaves falling didn't really work with my schedule so I kinda dragged ass on the leaf raking, then of course it snowed and covered the leaves. The thaw was just enough to melt all the snow and dry the leaves out and I finally got my raking done....in the 2nd week of Jan.

urban vegan said...

I call January "the grey season" b/c all the Xmas lights come down and all that's left is grey-and your imagination.

Tanya Kristine said...

i love the snow but yes i am scared to death to drive in it...
