First major snowfall and it's already late January

The first major snowfall of the winter is coming today. As the Detroit Free Press reports: Snow expected across metro Detroit as deep freeze blankets area. The odd part is that this didn't happen until a full month after the official start of winter. It's been a very mild winter so far, which is exactly what one would expect if the planet is warming, along with 2011 being the ninth warmest year on record (so far), having a record 14 billion dollar disasters, and record precipitation in Detroit and other Michigan and Ohio cities. Still, a couple of months that I didn't have to shovel snow or drive on slick roads makes for a small silver lining in the cloud of climate change.

In honor of the event, I present two videos about winter in Michigan. First, the fantasy.

Now, the reality.

Welcome to Michigan. If you don't like the weather, wait 10 minutes. It will change.
