Detroit Moxie's Weekend Roundup

The Nain Rouge?For the love of Al Gore, this summer weather in March in Detroit has been glorious! But something must be askew, no? A mild winter leading into a summer-like spring just can’t be right.

I predict that Mother Nature will have the last laugh and will hit us with a big, bad snow storm in April. And what day would be the absolute worst for that to happen? The weather for the Detroit Tigers home opener is almost always less than perfect. I’m also leaving on a jet plane that day so it would be horrible timing. I really hope it doesn’t happen and please don’t blame me if it does but... you heard it hear first.

Now, get out there and enjoy Detroit!
