The first 60-degree day

March 9, 2009 - Blaine Hyska
There are a lot of people who try to make folks in the Upper Peninsula jealous.

They’re vacationing in Florida, Arizona, or some other warm climate. Or they may be old school chums living in areas far south of the Menominee River.

Regardless, their monologue is the same.

“Boy, it’s really nice out,” they’ll boast in the middle of January. “I was thinking about golfing. How much snow did you say you have?”

You can sense their fake concern over the muffled laughter.

There’s not much you can say in response.

Not until now. This is the time of year when the days are getting longer and the snow is melting.

Sure, Florida, California and Nevada may not have snow, below-zero wind chills, or St. Patrick’s day blizzards.

But they’re missing out on something else — the first 60-degree day after a long, hard winter.

And that, my friends, is what God’s country is all about.
