As you can see, we got some snow. The tops of the deck lights give the clearest picture of how much. Not bad for a Michigan winter. Though I’m not a native Michigander and mostly think of snow and cold on a Virginia scale, I find that I really can look at 4-6 inches of the white stuff and shrug. No big deal. This much snow would have paralyzed the Washington, DC, area. Michigan dusts off the roads and gets on with its business.
