Comments: Affliction

I must dispute your snow assessment, Senor Kepple. While we may have only had 13 or so in a day, it could do that easily 3 or 4 days a week from December through March. Yes, it isn't as cold, Lake Michigan is good for something besides Warren Dunes State Park. However, I would venture that Kalamazoo gets a great deal more snow in total inches than Mancheztah. You're right though, I forgot how windy A2 is. Remember that time freshman year when we walked from the bus stop at the Chem building to the Red Hawk Grill when it was -40 wind chill? We could go about 10 feet as I recall before we ducked behind a building and prayed for deliverance. Those were the days.....You mentioned it snowed on October 23rd. Did it ever snow on the 12th???????????? (cough cough).

Wow, you make Michigan seem like a tropical paradise. Especially the wrong-end-of-the-time zone stuff. Most everyone here hates the dark; many believe the holidays come along now so the lights can cheer us up. I'm sending this piece to a lot of my friends "not from here." Thanks.
