    Talking watching the world turn

    so i got out of work about two nights ago and decided since i had the day off the following day i would set my hammock up in the front yard and sleep, i usually enjoy rain on my tarp (who doesnt) and here in michigan i was raining at the time (perfect i thought to myself) so i get in to my big bundle of down and the rain begins to turn to sleet which eventually turned to snow, yes it was snowing in MI its unheard of lol, but as i layed in my hammock i got to watch the world around me turn white, it was one of the coolest things i have ever seen, needless to say i slept amazing that night

    just thought i would share

    Excellent story. I just cleared an area in my back woods to do the very same thing. (except snow in MD isn't in the forecast anytime soon)

    Man, that's too cool. I'd love to see that happen around me.

    That sound like a cool thing to do. One day I'll do that but it will not happen anytime soon since I live in Florida and dont have any plans for a trip up north.
