I saw one of the true signs of spring in West Michigan Tuesday, and that sent on a mission for more. Here's the proof.

Yes, Snow Is In The Forecast For Friday Morning

I realize the forecast isn't yet heading in the direction we want, but look at it this way, most of Michigan just north of here is still under snow, and we're not, so rejoice, we're snow pack free!

That being said, on my bike ride home from downtown Tuesday, I saw a sign of spring: the sleeveless shorts guy! That's right, in line at the Frosty Boy was a dude in 50-degree temps without sleeves and wearing shorts! Summer must be just around the corner! And the Tigers opening day is Friday! We're almost there!

Until then, here are some other signs of Michigan, via social media.

The Ferries Are Running In The Straits Of Mackinac!

Albeit, not too well, because one went astray yesterday, but at least the ice has broken.

Hiking Trails To The South Are Looking Great!

The Sand At Silver Lake Is Visible!

The Bikes Are Almost Exposed In Marquette!

Okay, this is from two years ago, and they've had WAY more snow this season, so this might not be happening just yet, but there's hope!

The New Holland Boom Sprayers Are Out!

I honestly don't know what this means, but damn it looks spring-like!

The Ice Has Stopped Falling Off The Big Mac!

Well, almost.

Road Construction Has Shut Down Downtown!

Did you go see Elton John Tuesday night? How was that traffic?
