It only snowed once, and that was on the first of the month. Every other year in the last 5 its been a total blast.

RA is much more likely to be crapped out weatherwise than Grattan. The sun shines in Michigan. In Wisconsin, probably because of bovine methane and cheese fumes the sun is much more particular. I've been to RA in August when it was colder than Grattan in April. No kidding!

I dont know. Im hoping the methane emissions out of all the cows asses helps to heat Wisconsin for an early spring.

Im concerned that the warm Wisconsin air will mix with the cool lake air and create a lot of condensation leading to a downfall of snow over the state of Michigan.

Now, I dont wish snow on any of you, but this is my concern that early in the year.

Nah, that's what Indiana is for! Lake effect snow falls in Lake Co., Indiana.

I've camped at Grattan in April, frost on the tent in the morning. Highs in the mid 40s in the day, no hot water in the shower......good times!

I think I used to run 36s on my 400(58hp)
