Default Depressing Michigan weather

This sucks, I had to work on Saturday which was nice and sunny then off Sunday which was cold and rainy. I've got Memorial weekend off and its supposed to rain all weekend. Im thinking of trading in the powerplay for a cruiser. I hate to do it but i need some canvas and a windshield if im ever gonna get out on the water. Please send some nice weather to MI.

Not to steal your Michigan thunder but my boat's bottom is yet to get moist never mind in the water - the deck on the other hand will be growing moss soon. I'm afraid to put in the lake - I'd end up driving 3 hour round trip 2x week to recharge batteries for the bilge pump. The canvas top isn't beading water anymore, its water logged and isn't dry long enough to spray. Did I mention its about 50 degrees?
this season sux.

I feel your pain, it finally got nice yesterday at around 5 PM
I am sitting here looking out at rain and 12 flats of unplanted flowers. Mr P took the shrink wrap off the ski boat, which is now squeezed in the garage cause he has not been able to get the cover on the hoist yet. Not only are we missing boating but all the stuff you have to do in the late spring is getting put off also. Some memorial weekend to look forward to, mid 60's .

To feel better about MI weather, read the noise thread about LOTO at least we don't have that problem.

Guys, Guys, thats exactly the reason I left. After living in the midwest and dealing with crappy summers, and subpar winters (Chicago) I had had enough. Picked up and moved to AZ were the suns always shining and boating is a plenty!!! Just need the canvas to keep the sun off your back, not the rain!!!

It's only depressing if you want to do anything outdoors.
They make drugs for the "weather depression" thing,,,,,,,,,

yea I was looking at your weather there on the news,brought back some old depressing memories.Like idleing around in the rain in the boat drinking beer on Memorial Day ,was not going to let the weather deny me my day of boating.That was 21 years ago and was my last memorial day in Michigan.
