“If March comes in like a lion, it will go out like a lamb.” Let’s hope that’s the case. We’ve had snow day numbers ten and eleven in the last week, during which time Lake Michigan killed her own ice caves that were formed along the western shores of the Leelanau Peninsula earlier in February. One visitor claimed that driving in downtown Traverse City was “like driving on the moon” this week. Our plowman has run out of places to put the snow that continues to accumulate.
BUT! March usually moves through this with ease. I think we’re nearing the end of this intense winter, Michigan, and I hope you’re all still loving the Great Lakes State as much as we do here at the Awesome Mitten. We have a lot in store for you this month, including:
–Hayley‘s stories about Craft and Mason and SunDaily,
–Joanna‘s account of Hamtramck Music Festival,
-A introduction to Windmill Pointe Brewing by Chaz,
-Our newest writer Alfy’s guide to St Paddy’s Day in Ann Arbor,
-Details on the new Pleasanton Cafe brought to you by Jennifer,
as well as our monthly updates on science with Emily; books with Aram; Grand Rapids with Lyndsay; Kalamazoo from Syndey, Carrie, and Sally; the Yoop with Jesse; the great outdoors with Kevin; and more!
We talked about some pretty amazing things in February, too. Did you see Jennifer’s story about Party in the Pantry? Syndey told us about the Borgess Hill Run Camp. Emily explained the ice cover on Lake Michigan and Lyndsay talked about snow. We got a recap on Michiganders’ showcasing at the Sochi Olympics from Kevin and reminders on how to fall back in love with Michigan from Joanna in conjunction with Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan.
Even though most of us are pretty sick of this tumultuous winter, our state will never stop being awesome. And we’ll never stop telling you about it.
Until next month, please stay awesome,
