Six weeks would be a treat here in Northern Michigan. It's now 8 degrees F., going down to 0. Lake effect snow amounting to 8-10 inches tonight and tomorrow.
Lake Michigan, about 3 blocks from my house, refuses to freeze for some reason, which brings us more lake effect snow. A friend drove over today and said, "Lake effect, my A**".
Up here, we call summer "two weeks of bad ice fishing".
Stay warm, all!
