"It's sounding more and more as if that cold you were talking bout is coming and a snowstorm is going to be hitting us by Christmas. I could do without it quite nicely. Not fond of the cold,either. Bottom line? Not a winter fan, not at Christmas…"

More Cold Temps for Mid Michigan But It Could Be Worse

Posted by Cathie Ursu on December 18, 2014 at 9:11am 0 Comments

At this time, I am starting to watch comparisons in this year's weather as compared to last.  At this time in 2013, we had about 4 inches of snow on the ground preceding the unforgettable ice storm that hit us on Dec. 22.  Nothing like that is in our forecast for this year and we are so hoping that we never see it again.  I would call this year's weather "normal" with the exception of that freak snowstorm that we had in November.  There is a surge of cold air which is affecting our weather at this time but temps remain in the normal range for this date.  Yesterday gave us a few spits of snow flurries but nothing more than that.  There isn't much snow cover anywhere in Michigan except the U.P.  St. Ignace still has 4 inches, Gaylord has 1 inch, and Ontanogon has 10 inches.  Fortunately for the skiers, temps are…
