Ah, Michigan and it’s ever so lovely weather.
Let me preface this by saying Michigan weather is highly unpredictable. You’ll know this if you’ve ever lived here. I essentially have an umbrella on me at all times.
Today’s forecast called for some scattered showers. I headed off for class, it seemed like a nice (brisk) day. The sun was out, there were a few clouds in the sky but they were white and fluffy. It was pretty much the same as I left class and headed back for my dorm. Not 5 minutes in to my walk & I thought I felt a raindrop. As instinct, I looked up at the sky and my second thought was that I must be crazy. But lo and behold, as I kept walking it kept raining. Now, it’s still sunny out. Complete utter confusion in my mind…
But that’s Michigan weather for you. My favorite Michigan weather story is from when I lived here before. I must have been about 6. It was a typical day and I went out to get the mail (just to the end of the driveway). On my way back into the house I could have sworn I heard thunder. I looked up at the sky and there was not a cloud in sight. As I entered my house, I told my mom I heard thunder. She told me I was crazy and hearing things and quite honestly, I believed her. Not ten minutes later, it started to downpour and in came a thunderstorm.
How I love thee, Michigan. Oh and your weather too!
Do you have a favorite weather story? (Or is that just crazy me?)
