I knew it! This is why we have so many breweries, to chase away the gloom.

WOOD-TV meteorologist Ellen Bacca posted this list on her Facebook page, which listed Grand Rapids as the cloudiest city east of the Mississippi and the sixth cloudiest city in all of America!

Which is appropriate because we really haven't seen the sun since the day after Thanksgiving, and that was the first time in three weeks before that.

Good news: We may get a glimpse of the sun today, but only if you're good.

 

This means we need a city slogan appropriate for our new found fame. How about this one, "Grand Rapids: We have so many breweries because we have to drink away the gloom!" That's snappy, isn't it?
