This is called "Michigan" but could apply to pretty much anywhere in the Midwest or East Coast right about now:

MICHIGAN WINTER POEM


It's winter here in Michigan, and the gentle breezes blow.

Seventy miles an hour, at twenty five below.

Oh, how I love Ole Michigan, when the snow's up to your butt.

You take a breath of winter, and your nose freezes shut.

Yes, the weather here is wonderful, so I guess I'll hang around.

I could never leave my Michigan, cause I'm frozen to the ground.

Warmer today than the last several day...about 35F, but the wind's blowing at about 20 mph. At least it's sunny, which is wonderful. Very, very dry though. The humidity is only about 28%. No wonder I have chapped lips and hands. They've been soaking up the moisturizer/lotion like sponges.

52 degrees and sunny. All the snow that we received in December is gone, except for a few icy spots. As much as I dislike snow, we really need to get some more or it is going to a long, hot, and dry summer.

Another impossibly glorious day has ended. Tomorrow more of the same. They say it wil last till the middle of next week, then get cooler (I hope). I've got a ton of new long-sleeved shirts and sweaters and haven't had much of a chance to wear them.
