Springtime in Ann Arbor

I feel like I shouldn’t even write this next sentence, because it’s just so inherently obvious to everyone, but – Michigan weather is crazy. This should be no surprise to me, as I’ve lived here most of my life, and yet year after year I find myself annoyed by it. Like a week or so ago, well past the midway point of April, when I woke up to snow flurries. Great job, Michigan.

Suffice it to say, I think winter dragged on for way too long this year, and I’ve been waiting (and waiting) for sunnier days to arrive. On Tuesday, I finished taking a final and walked outside and suddenly: springtime! Now, you can never be too sure in Michigan (I wouldn’t rule out having a snow day tomorrow, quite honestly), but I think the weather has finally turned for good.

Whenever I can’t handle studying any longer, I take a walk. And so this week, I have been taking lots of walks, and because the weather is nice, my walks have been lovely. The air is warm, the flowers are in bloom, and seemingly every house you walk by has a porch filled with drunk frat boys hanging off it (ah, undergrads!). Springtime is here, and we’re all pretty pumped about it.

In celebration of the season, here are a few iPhone pictures, snapped on my daily walks.

So for all of my fellow mitten residents, are you excited it’s finally spring?!
