You must be somewhere a lot cooler or with more snowfall than Chicago.

Chicago's average for % of the month with snow on the ground:

November: 3%
December: 32%
January: 54%
February: 43%
March: 13%
April: 1%

% of the entire year with snow on the ground in Chicago: 12%

Chicago's average chance on any given day of getting at least 3" of snow:

November: 0%
December: 2%
January: 4%
February: 3%
March: 2%
April: 0%

% of the entire year with at least 3" of snow falling: 1%

Chicago's average chance on any given day of getting an inch of snow or more:

November: 1%
December: 8%
January: 12%
February: 10%
March: 5%
April: 1%

% of the entire year with at least an inch of snow falling: 3%

% of the entire year with at least flurries flying through the air: 8%

Funny that you put Saginaw in the your list of bad cities because, although I love "The Creek", Battle Creek is now just as bad as "Saginasty". The neighborhoods around downtown are just as ghetto as Saginaw. I find that the national image of Michigan is seen as only being Ann Arbor and Detroit. Why? Because they always tring to dominate every conversation about Michigan! Metro Detroit people love to force themselves onto everyone. Metro Detroit people are attention whores!!

Haha somewhere in Peoria IL there's a person with a computer in their moms basement having the exact rant about people in Chicagoland compared to downstate. With my Michigan experience I couldn't find this more untrue. People in Grand Rapids tend to be attention whores, the people in Detroit get more attention because they out number the rest of Michigan by good margins. Of course they are going be the vacuum of focus.

This is true about Grand Rapids. A lot of people there think the world ends east of Kent County. I love GR, but the pro-West Michigan crowd can be a little nauseating sometimes.

In Wisconsin, there's a similar Madison/Milwaukee split/attitude.

Interesting. I am guessing that Madison residents think it is the greatest place on Earth and try to downplay the importance of Milwaukee to the state? That would make it almost a perfect parallel to the Grand Rapids/Detroit divide. Other than the fact that Milwaukee is a much healthier city than Detroit, of course.
