It felt like spring was here!
And then it wasn’t.
But then it was!
And then it went away again.
Such is the way of the false-spring-starts in northern Michigan. Just when we think we can finally put the snow boots away for the season, we’re pulling them out again. But we tough Michiganders, we get it – we know this has to be the way of things. Because when we consider the pay off? Well, springtime in northern Michigan is just about the best thing there is!
The days are already longer, the sun shining brighter, the sky bluer. We’ve noticed little pops of green in the flower beds and on most mornings, the birds are singing outside our windows. Sure signs of springy things to come!
April 7th was National Beer Day and we celebrated by raising a glass of Short’s Brewing Space Rock. Mr. Joe Short might be riding a snowmobile-space rocket on the label but the beer itself sings of spring: floral and orange peel-like hop aromas finished with citrus rind and dandelion leaf flavors. We caught ourselves making beverage plans for future sunny picnic and beach trips!
Despite the still-chilly weather, fellow locals seem to have a noticeable spring in their step (wink wink!) and our TCYP crew is no exception. In addition to our changing wardrobes, our music choices seem to warm up around this time of year, too. We’ve created a mixtape that’s sure to turn your thoughts to warm spring days and put a smile on your face!
