Just to let y'all know that, just because Michigan has blue skies twice in one week, the world is not going to end anytime soon. We do get sunshine on a fairly regular basis, I think a study showed we get ~69 days of full sun a year, but unfortunately it seems like most of those 69 days is crunched into the summer. In December, we had 14 minutes of sunshine. Isn't that a totally enticing reason to move to Michigan? ;)
Partly cloudy forecasts is something of an art form for Michigan folk, I've learned to take those two words with a grain of salt. (I wonder if Dali had lived in Michigan would he have painted melting clouds?) "Partly cloudy" can mean anything from 0.00001 to 99.99999% cloudy. Cloudy forecasts means one thing-that you should make a big batch of hot cocoa, cover up in bed, and snuggle with your loved ones 'cause the sun ain't going to come out.
Holy cow, I've just made a blog talking about the weather?!? Yikes.
Keep warm, have some hot cocoa and hug your pets.
