Pestilence, bad attitudes, and chapped skin. Winter in Michigan is miserable. It's so cold I think the skunk has moved on better accommodations. I guess there was too much wind getting to him under the deck. We've barely been above freezing the last two weeks after all. We haven't noticed his spoor in at least three weeks. So the cold has accomplished something good. I'm amazed at the people who actually find things to do in this weather; skiing, ice fishing and the like. Winter Fun is an contradiction. The only activity I enjoy in winter is waiting for spring.
