WINTER in Michigan’s Paradise
The Old Farmer’s Almanac annual weather forecast beginning November 2016 includes predictions that “Winter will be colder than normal, with the coldest periods in mid-December, through most of January, and in early and late February. Precipitation will be a bit above normal in the east and below normal in the west, with snowfall above normal from Minneapolis eastward and below normal in the west. The snowiest periods will be in early to mid- and mid- to late December, mid-January, and early to mid- and late February.”
While The Old Farmer’s Almanac, founded in 1792 is highly regarded, our experience says that with the winter months arriving, we can expect snow and cold. How much is anybody’s guess but with an annual snow fall average of 200 inches, we make preparations. We are im the midst of putting away grills, picnic tables, lawn furniture, and cleaning up leaves. We are making sure that everything stowed under the eves is moved out to prevent possible damage to that equipment such as our kayaks, due to snowfall from the roof. We are checking on winter equipment; snowblowers, snow shovels, snow shoes, and snow sleds.
