That was a pretty hilarious headline on the cover of Tucson's Arizona Daily Star newspaper on Saturday, after the area picked up a couple inches of snow.  A hat tip to Lisa Aukee, who posted it to Facebook, for letting us share it here.

Now we're going to put on our big kid snowpants and get ready for another round of real winter weather, and while our season total of roughly 40 inches so far in mid-Michigan doesn't compare to Marquette's incredible 200+ inches of snow this season (by the way, that's more than 16 FEET of snow); in fact, 40 inches isn't even as much snow as we had at this time last season (65+ inches), it's still more than we typically get in a season.  

For the record, on average, we pack about 32 inches of snow into a season, according to measurements taken in Flint.

So what about this system that's moving in tonight?
