You're making me homesick with your Pure Michigan commercials. And the Grand Rapids one, that was just plain evil.

Ah,the grass is always greener on the other side. I live in Muskegon,Michigan. The four seasons are extremely sporadic and the summers last from the beginning of May to sometimes the middle if October. The summers are full of extreme heat&terrible humidity.for an asthmatic it's horrible.fall happens for about a month then there's winter that usually hits in November and lasts til about the middle of april,little bit of disgusting"spring" and then boom...summer again. No state is perfect but 39yrs of this mess and I'm more than ready for a whole new mess.

I grew up in Michigan. I am familiar with it's frequent bipolar shifts. What I can no longer stand is 110 degrees for 9 months out of the year and absolutely no green at all. Desert landscaping means that literally, the grass is greener on the Michigan side.
