Table for Five

A Year Ago Today It Was SNOWING Here In Michigan

Have you heard of You connect it to your Facebook and Twitter accounts, then it sends you a daily email telling you what you posted a year ago that day. This morning, my email from Timehop said I posted this on Facebook:

“It’s snowing and everyone has already forgotten how to drive. {At a complete stop on highway as cars heading into downtown Lansing take exits at 5 mph} “

That’s why we have a saying here in Michigan – “Don’t like the weather? Wait a minute. It will change!”

There was frost on the van windshield this morning and on the ground, but fortunately, no snow. It’s been 32 degrees at night, which means the heat is STILL on. I know it’s only April, but it just seems wrong!

Fortunately, I hadn’t packed away all my winter clothes yet. I don’t know anyone in Michigan personally who packs away their winter clothes before the end of May. I still have my nice warm ‘Damart’ cardigans to layer over t-shirts, and they stay on all day because it’s so dang cold!  I even got up last night after I had gotten into bed and put on SOCKS because my feet were so cold, it was keeping me awake.

And Kaitlyn has been wearing her fleece-lined hoodie to school, with her WINTER HAT AND GLOVES because at 7:40 in the morning when she’s standing in the driveway waiting for the bus, it’s barely 40 degrees.  I’m actually kind of surprised it hasn’t snowed!

What’s the weather like in your part of the country? Are you still bundling up like we are? Share in a comment!
