Some here know about real winter

I noticed a brief in the paper this morning about the upcoming retirement of county library director Mike Wirt.

It seems like we have been announcing his impending retirement since the 1990s. But I digress.

Mike is one of those folks in our midst who have every right to roll their eyes when they hear someone complain about our long, hard winters.

He grew up in Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. And in the Lower 48, the Soo is in the major leagues of winter. That Great Lakes city knows snow and cold

So congratulations on your retirement, Mike. I'd ask if you plan to move somewhere warm. But the truth is, from your perspective at least, you did that when you came to Spokane.
