10 Commandments for Living in Michigan
1. Thou shalt enjoy an outdoor winter activity.
We can have snow in six of the 12 months of the year in Michigan. If you don’t find an outside activity, you will at some point succumb to cabin fever or seasonal affective disorder.
You don’t have to cross-country or downhill ski, snowshoe, figure skate, play hockey, or even snowmobile if you don’t want to, but pick something. Maybe for you it’s ice fishing or sledding. Maybe your hidden talent is snowman building or ice sculpting. I don’t care what your thing is, just find it and do it for your own mental health.
Me? I like to gear up in all of my warmest clothes then walk through the snow drifts in my yard as if I’m Luke Skywalker trudging across the surface of Hoth. You do you.
