    Insanely Warm Michigan Winter


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     sailfish says she captured this photo overlooking Huron Lake, and explains that the lack of wintery weather has been upsetting because of its direct impact on tourism.
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    I work at a retreat/conference center where we rely on cold and snowy conditions to help people enjoy winter. Recently we've begun to wonder if our guests will be disappointed all winter. We have no ice for them to skate on, no snow for them to ski or snowshoe on, and we are getting worried. The area where I live is very touristy and we also need the tourism industry to pick up with snowmobilers soon. The warm winter has bummed many of us out this year. Maybe we should just get out our patio furniture and get ready to fire up the grill.
