    About the only argument to that is, in comparison to us in Ohio, at least they have a real winter.

    My buddy MiamiDave visited me one winter and after flying in said, you could tell in the plane when we were over Ohio.
    There was no snow, everything was just gray and dead!!

    My wife is sick of me telling that story ��

    20 yrs ago I tried to turn a new leaf and accept our winters.
    Tried skiing.

    Problem was, I had just spent 2 wks in Portland and skied on Mt Hood.
    Ohio only has ski hills, no mountains.
    So 7hr drive to real skiing.
    Which meant, a $500 weekend, same as a weekend on the boat, at the time!

    Then I thought about a sled like my friends have.
    Similar to skiing, no good sledding in Ohio.
    So, 7 hrs to the UP of Mich or Canada.

    So now I need a trailer, a sled, a place to stay, $$$$.

    That was about the time I moved to Fla the first time!

    You just explained why Southern Michigan (south of US 10 basically) winters suck ass.

    It's flat, muddy, slushy, and bitter cold with minimal snow fall.

    I lived in Marquette (college years) and the winters were awesome, waist deep snow on the ground that never melted from Christmas - easter, plenty of snowshowing, skiing, snowmobiles, jeep rides, ice fishing, etc to keep you busy with out sloshing around the the southern michigan (ohio) mud slush and garbage.

    Not to mention the 300' tall ski hills down here that make "snow" (what they really mean is they grind up ice with the snow cat pushing it around and call it snow)......

    Even the 500'-750' elevation hills in northern michigan are 'better' but not really all that fun once you've been out west......

    Michigan's true charm is the lakes, beaches, and summer weather (in my opinion) - I can do with out December-March.

    My experience with Ohio is similar, he lake erie shoreline is nice, the hocking hills area is nice, the rest reminds me of central/lower michigan - flat farmlands with out much to offer.

    New York State's Hudson River, Mohawk River, Champlain Canal, and Erie Canal system is a 500 mile one way adventure that connects 6 lakes. Only salt water is from NYC north about 30 miles of Hudson River.
