Snow Living

The first thing I tried to search for when it was a possibility I was headed north was “living in the snow for dummies.” Then “living in the north for dummies.” Then “moving to the north for dummies.” And then, “moving to the north for southerners.” Nothing.

To follow is a collection of questions and discoveries, serious and funny, that occurred to me so I asked native Michiganders.

Special thanks to Amanda, Susana, and the Health Comm Campaigns Fall 2011 class, MIS faculty and staff, and the APRR department for all of your help and teachings!
