When Will You Be Ready For Snow? [Poll]


It’s only a matter of time.

Exactly when is up for debate, but the snow will come.

When will you be ready for snow?







I don’t really do winter sports, but my kids do.  They make winter fun.  Sledding.  Snowmen.  Snow angels.

I can do without driving in snow, otherwise it’s fun.  But I’d be happy waiting until mid-December. has some info on when that first snowfall may come and what to expect this winter:

William Marino with the National Weather Service in Grand Rapids said is the likelihood of temperatures being at-times markedly colder than last year, with abundantly more snowfall expected periodically.

The Grand Rapids area’s first substantial snowfall of the season is but mere weeks away, and Marino said the question now is when will the distinctively Michigan weather hit.

“This year, I think it’s going to be equally distributed. When we get below normal, it’s going to be severely colder than it got last winter,” Marino said.

The “normal” temperature range for Grand Rapids is 24.9 degrees to 27.1 degrees Fahrenheit. Anything above or below is abnormal, Marino said.

“We have had, in the last 10 years, … two winters that are below normal,” he added, “one winter where it was above normal and the rest were near normal.”

For those of you who ARE fans of snow.  Check out the new video from Pure Michigan that promotes our winter activities.  For everyone else, the video further down will have to work.
