This is what late April in Michigan looks like this year. Keep in mind that a mere 4 days ago it was 84 degrees. I just took my trusty ruler outside and measured the snow that piled up on our table outside and there is 4.75" of the white stuff. (Later in the day....now closer to 7" and still coming down....)
WHAT THE HECK?
Yes, I know. This is Michigan. Yes, I know. I have lived here my entire life. I am quite familiar with the ol' saying....
This is Michigan...you don't like the weather? Hang around 5 minutes...it will change.
I have seen snow flurries in May. I have seen some of our biggest snow storms come through in April. But each year when the 80 degree weather hits and stays around for a few days, the grass is green and people are mowing it, the flowers are blooming, the trees are budding, you tend to think that maybe JUST MAYBE this year will be different. But no. Reality hits. And stinks.
At least I can wear my wool socks a few more times.
