Someone from Las Vegas doesn't have a handle on what "crazy" cold is.

Well if snow driving is an issue (and in the MItten it always will be), they should take public transportation or work close to home so they can walk there.

Ah who am I kidding they will freeze to death.

But I'll take Michigan's brutal snow over the South's humidity.

I actually learned a little something from Cheese Plate on this thread. I did not realize that the averages are almost identical on each side of Lake Michigan. So my bubble has burst somewhat on how much "warmer" Michigan is than Wisconsin. I do still think the difference can be very big under certain weather patterns, though, like the map I posted.

It might be a Michigander thing to say this, but every person from W. Michigan I've met always talks about how much more brutal Chicago's winters are than Michigan's. I always reply with "but...you get like 3x the snow..." and they reply with "yeah but it's so pretty! You guys are just COLD!"

I never thought the snow was pretty when I lived there. I used to listen to a song called "Buried Alive" over and over during the winter.

Yeah, count me as one of those people. There is just something about that wind between the buildings in the loop. I have never had my face hurt so much as I have walking around Chicago in January.

And bugs!

Oh, and cheese plate, if you're reading this, I just want you to know that every time I read your S/N I get the urge to run to the fridge and grab a chunk of Swiss or cheddar. If I gain weight over this winter, you will be personally responsible.

See I don't mind the cold. It's tons of snow that causes inconvenience in life and makes it hard to drive. Yeah I own an AWD but other people can be idiots.

I'm glad I'm positively affecting the world by arguing minutiae on a ridiculous forum

Speaking of, why were people complaining about "Pure Michigan" a page back? Talk about a marketing home run! We paid over a mill for some idiots to come up with "Wisconsin: Live Like You Mean it," which was immediately ridiculed and quickly pulled, sans dough we paid to the "geniuses" who came up with it.

Yes, Michiganders: We have sandy beaches throughout our Lake Michigan coastline; we get lake effect snow; we're a top cherry producer and have orchards throughout the eastern shore; the lake moderates temperatures here just like in Michigan.

And we want the UP! You can have, uh, our governor or something. And some cheese.

Tim Allens voice drives me nuts lol. You should look up some of the Pure Michigan parodies on Youtube some of them are dumb but some are really good.
