Watching most outdoor sports require the use of snowpants and mittens. Even in the summer months.

I grew up in Empire and Traverse City. Petoskey stones were a common find on the beach. It is easier to see the honeycomb pattern when the rocks are wet.

I used to get Agates on the shore of Superior and occasionally found a Petoskey stone in the mix. They haven't much specific value other than being a piece of Mother Michigan Nature.

My mother-in-law (from Kentucky) still does not understand the UP. She always asks why can't we just say Upper Peninsula.
I tell her, when Kentucky changes it's road signs from "Fallen Rocks" to "Falling Rocks" she will understand.

You know you're from MI when you wear shorts, flip flops, and a hoodie!

I moved to Ky about 6 years ago and when people ask where I'm from I always hold up my hand and point at Petoskey. Every time, without fail, they get excited and say "Oh, the UP?" Umm...no.
