I have lived in Michigan my entire life, and I have learned one thing growing up in the mitten state: never trust the weather.
I am not sure if other places around the world are like this, but Michigan can have three different types of weather in a single day. Once, we went from snow to sun to rain in the span of fewer than 6 hours. For a state that is shaped like a mitten, it sure lives up to its name. Our winters are crazy--usually really snowy and cold, but you never know what it is going to be like from day to day.
This past winter almost the entire month of January was sunny and we hardly had any snow. When we got snow, it wasn't just a little, no, it was a blizzard where we would get feet of snow to make up for all the other days that we were enjoying not having a very snowy winter for once.
Recently, there have been floods all over Michigan, because after having a gigantic snowstorm, Michigan decided that even though it was February (usually a very snowy, cold month for us) it was time to jump into spring, and all of our snow melted, and then it rained, causing all of our abundant water bodies to overflow. Both my hometown and my college campus seemed to be almost completely underwater! We had students canoeing to class!
Growing up in Michigan, you start to realize how resilient we are to these weather changes compared to people from other states. In the winter, as soon as it gets past 20 degrees, there are people who walk around in shorts and t-shirts because to us, that is a warm winter. We adapt to the weather with a moments notice, most noticeable by the number of layers we will wear in a day.
You know someone is from Michigan when we dress for at least two different types of weather in a day. On a typical day, I will wear a t-shirt with a sweatshirt but it has to have a hood because our weather could go from 60 degrees to under 20 and rainy in no time at all!
Despite being one of the craziest states weather-wise, Michigan is a pretty great place to live. Even though I give Michigan a lot of crap, I am glad I was able to grow up here. There are so many cool places to visit and the people are all pretty nice. We have names of cities that even people from here can't pronounce. We have a cool bridge surrounded by an awesome city that makes some really awesome fudge, and we are surrounded by some of the prettiest waters I have ever seen.
We don't really get extreme weather besides the occasional tornado warning, and the two random earthquakes a few years ago, and we have so many opportunities to get involved! Michigan has such a diverse community that fosters your love for just about anything. Education wise, I feel like our state has a ton of colleges and universities for being a relatively lesser known state.
tired cat Meme Generator
The Fastest Meme Generator on the Planet. Easily add text to images or memes.
What is the Meme Generator?
It's a free online image maker that allows you to add custom resizable text to images. It operates in HTML5 if supported, so your images are created instantly. Most commonly, people use the generator to add text captions to established memes, so technically it's more of a meme "captioner" than a meme maker. However, you can also upload your own images as templates.
How can I customize my meme?
- You can move and resize the text boxes by dragging them around. If you're on a mobile device, you may have to first check "enable drag/drop" in the More Options section.
- You can customize the font color, outline color, and outline width just to the right of where you type your text.
- You can further customize the font and add additional text boxes in the More Options section. Imgflip supports all web fonts and Windows/Mac fonts including bold and italic, if they are installed on your device. Note that Android and other mobile operating systems may support fewer fonts.
- You can rotate your meme, add scumbag hats or other custom images, and draw on your meme using the panel just above the meme preview image.
- You can create "meme chains" of multiple images stacked vertically by adding new images with the "below current image" setting.
Can I use the generator for more than just memes?
Yes! The Meme Generator is a flexible tool for many purposes. By uploading custom images and using all the customizations, you can design many creative works including posters, banners, advertisements, and other custom graphics.
Why is there an "imgflip.com" watermark on my memes?
The Imgflip watermark helps other people find where the meme was created, so they can make memes too! However, if you'd really like to, you can remove our watermark from all images you create, as well as remove ads and supercharge your image creation abilities, using Imgflip Pro or Imgflip Pro Basic.
