Aren't those just from jet planes? I'm confused. I don't see that and I'm in Michigan.
If I know VV
He's saying that those contrails are chemtrails

I was born in 1962 and have lived in Michigan all of my life. Growing up right up to the early 80's our weather was the same as it has been since recorded Michigan history.
We have harsh winters with lots of snow and hot humid summers. Until sometime in the 80's it all changed. We suddenly had very minimal winters and spring and fall had disappeared it would go from winter to summer without any transition, this has been going on until about three years ago.
The change in our winters the past 25 years has been weird enough. These past three though have been really bad. The winters suddenly became really harsh. Very long with record lows and record snowfall.
Whats worst is the past two summers have been very cool. Last year it didn't feel like summer until early July, after a really long harsh winter.
This year summer still hasn't quite set in we should be having heat int the 90's with hot arid nights. It has been so cold at night you can see your breath. The days are in the 50's to 70's with mostly rainy days. We have had some leaves changing color in our backyard that are in the afternoon shade of our house! They started changing color last week.
Too many strange anomalies have been going on to even begin to explain here. Our weather has become intensely erratic to the point that its becoming a bit alarming.

I think that a measure of "alarm" is warranted here. The weather is "out of its tree" so to speak. I am in Iowa. We are a bit luckier here I suppose. If I was a planetary doctor (which I am not) I would say take a holistic approach. In other words, let us consider many of the factors.
Do you remember the last time that your local meteorologist showed you the jet stream? Thought not.
Extremely lazy person, so you will have to do your own research but let us consider:
Land rising overnight in Alaska
African rift appearing in minutes
Many new Earthquakes
Large tornadoes in northern places
Anomalous tides in Puerto Rico and Maine
Extreme heat in Texas, Oklahoma, and Kansas, not to mention Miami
Well, there you have it. It IS extremely weird right now. Next step, let us figure out why...
I think that we are witnessing a jet stream that is very extreme north to south, coming up behind the plains and diving down before it gets to Michigan.
Oh, and go Hawkeyes, the Wolverines are toast this fall just like 85!!!
Best to you!

Anyway, this is Michigan. If you don't like the weather, wait 15 minutes...

I'm in SE Michigan too, about 45 min south of Detroit. I remember a couple of years ago, it snowed the beginning of May. I remember because it was on my daughters Birthday. It seems to me that the cotton from the neighbors cotton wood trees fell late this summer. Everything seems to be out of whack.
Also, last year, I didn't get my garden started until mid June. I usually get it going the last week of May. This year I was able to get things out 15 May.
