I saw a post on a website that ranked the states by which states have the worse winters and Michigan was ranked #2 behind Minnesota. You can see the list HERE, Which yes we do have a long cold winter with a lot of lake effect snow coming off the Great Lakes. But then the description on the list goes on about how horrible the winter is, with it’s cold and dreary days with nothing to do.
I was born and raised in this winter wonderland, and I think it is what you make of it. If you embrace the winter months by getting out and enjoy it by snowmobiling, skiing, sledding, ice fishing or any other winter activity, Michigan can be a lot of fun in the winter, and besides I think going thru a tough winter builds character. I am proud to tell people, especially those that live down south, that I am a Michigander, and a little bit of bad weather does not stop me, and not to take the good days for granted.
