Welcome to Michigan.

Sounds like your going to be in the UP. A Yupper!!

Got to learn the Yupper creed. Anyone from the Lower Peninsula is a troll.
Because Troll's live below the bridge.

Me, I live just 5 miles north of the Indiana / Michigan state line in rural Berrien county

Welcome to the mitten state.

Here is a gem of interesting true crime history if you want to understand some of the seedy stuff:

You will come to learn when a Yooper says "When ya leavin' " he means he's glad to see ya eh.

Michigan tends to be overlooked A LOT as a place to retire. Some costs are high but land/housing in the rural part of the state tend to be among the lowest in the nation.  $500k in rural Michigan will buy you a palace compared to anyplace out west.

Welcome and you will really enjoy the UP.  Beautiful country and with good people.  Winters can be brutal but you will adjust fairly quick I am sure.  If nobody told you yet make sure you keep a winter kit in your car (blanket, water, flashlight, etc).  If you get stuck in a snowbank up there it could be a while before someone comes by, and cell service can be spotty at best.

Beautiful property!

Welcome!

I grew up in the EUP and have a second home there now. Currently live in metro Detroit, but I spend as much time up north as possible.

Man it's so good to have you! Great to hear how much you appreciate the beauty in the Yoop, California is no joke in that category. All though we live downstate (that is the correct term) deer camp is near Pictured Rocks and we have some land up on the Huron Bay as well, all our recreation time is spent up there. Do you fish or snowmobile? Looking forward to hearing from you as this chapter unfolds. Congrats on your excellent choice.

I think we're better classified as Michiana than Michigan.  Living near the border isn't a bad thing.

Enjoy the mitten!! I’ve spent the entire winter working on a few different projects on Mackinac Island, the state just seems to get better and better as you go north!

Has the snow melted up there yet ?
Link Posted: 5/24/2021 12:42:49 PM EDT
Dad was born in Hancock, one of the most beautiful places on earth. Until too many people moved there and built the place up. Still beautiful though. Grams last house had the best view of the bridge.
Dad used to tell the story of his dog running in front of the snow plow and breaking the snow plow. Big dog. Aunts confirmed the story. They weren't given to exaggerations.
Speaking of snow plows.....

Diary of a Snow Shoveler

December 9: We woke to a beautiful blanket of crystal white snow covering every inch of the landscape. What a fantastic sight! Can there be a more lovely place in the Whole World? Moving here was the best idea I've ever had. Shoveled for the first time in years and felt like a boy again. I did both our driveway and the sidewalks. This afternoon the snow plow came along and covered up the sidewalks and closed in the driveway, so I got to shovel again. What a perfect life.

December 12: The sun has melted all our lovely snow. Such a disappointment. My neighbor tells me not to worry, we'll definitely have a white Christmas. No snow on Christmas would be awful! Bob says we'll have so much snow by the end of winter, that I'll never want to see snow again. I don't think that's possible. Bob is such a nice man. I'm glad he's our neighbor.

December 14: Snow, lovely snow! 8" last night. The temperature dropped to -20. The cold makes everything sparkle so. The wind took my breath away, but I warmed up by shoveling the driveway and sidewalks. This is the life! The snowplow came back this afternoon and buried everything again. I didn't realize I would have to do quite this much shoveling, but I'll certainly get back in shape this way. I wish I wouldn't huff and puff so.

December 15: 20 inches forecast. Sold my van and bought a 4x4 Blazer. Bought snow tires for the wife's car and 2 extra shovels. Stocked the freezer. The wife wants a wood stove in case the electricity goes out. I think that's silly. We aren't in Alaska, after all.

December 16: Ice storm this morning. Fell on my ass on the ice in the driveway putting down salt. Hurt like hell. The wife laughed for an hour, which I think was very cruel.

December 17: Still way below freezing. Roads are too icy to go anywhere. Electricity was off for 5 hours. I had to pile the blankets on to stay warm. Nothing to do but stare at the wife and try not to irritate her. Guess I should've bought a wood stove, but won't admit it to her. God I hate it when she's right. I can't believe I'm freezing to death in my own living room.

December 20: Electricity's back on, but had another 14" of the damn stuff last night. More shoveling. Took all day. Goddamn snowplow came by twice. Tried to find a neighbor kid to shovel, but they said they're too busy playing hockey. I think they're lying. Called the only hardware store around to see about buying a snow blower and they're out. Might have another shipment in March. I think they're lying. Bob says I have to shovel or the city will have it done and bill me. I think he's lying.

December 22: Bob was right about a white Christmas because 13 more inches of the white shit fell today, and it's so cold it probably won't melt till August. Took me 45 minutes to get all dressed up to go out to shovel and then I had to piss. By the time I got undressed, pissed and dressed again. I was too tired to shovel. Tried to hire Bob who has a plow on his truck for the rest of the winter; but he says he's too busy. I think the asshole is lying.

December 23: Only 2" of snow today. And it warmed up to 0. The wife wanted me to decorate the front of the house this morning. What is she...nuts??? Why didn't she tell me to do that a month ago? She says she did but I think she's damn well lying.

December 24: 6". Snow packed so hard by snowplow, l broke the shovel. Thought I was having a heart attack. If I ever catch the son of a bitch who drives that snowplow, I'll drag him through the snow by his balls. I know he hides around the corner and waits for me to finish shoveling and then he comes down the street at a 100 miles an hour and throws snow all over where I've just been! Tonight the wife wanted me to sing Christmas carols with her and open our presents, but I was busy watching for the goddamn snowplow.

December 25: Merry Christmas. 20 more inches of the #$%ing slop tonight. Snowed in. The idea of shoveling makes my blood boil. God I hate the snow! Then the snowplow driver came by asking for a donation and I hit him over the head with my shovel.

December 26: Still snowed in. Why the hell did I ever move here? It was all HER idea. She's really getting on my nerves.

December 28: Warmed up to above -50. Still snowed in. THE BITCH is driving me crazy!!!

December 29: 10 more inches. Bob says I have to shovel the roof or it could cave in. That's the silliest thing I ever heard. How dumb does he think I am?

December 30: Roof caved in. The snow plow driver is suing me for a million dollars for the bump on his head. The wife went home to her mother. 9" predicted.

December 31: Set fire to what's left of the house. No more shoveling.

January 8: I feel so good. I just love those little white pills they keep giving me. Why am I tied to the bed?
