Snow this weekend; Mighty Good Coffee owners respond; new documentary about Ann Arbor's Commie High


Happy Friday!

In true Michigan fashion, a few more snow showers could fall before April is over. That's right, there are chances of snow in the forecast this weekend as temperatures dip into the low 30s. ❄

May is just around the corner, so we have that going for us, right?

Have a great weekend.
