Rochester, Minnesota to Ann Arbor, Michigan

Let’s quickly take a one day trek from southeastern Minnesota to southeastern Michigan. The drive is a a 587.8 mile journey, which we will cover in 9 1/2 hours on Christmas Day. I suspect there will be traffic everywhere, but nothing pparticularly dense anywhere. If you don’t want to do the math, the mph measure will be 62.6. Let’s get a move on. It’s a big day!

By the early afternoon, there will be a tendril of wet snow moving into central Minnesota on Christmas, but if we play our cards right, we’ll be in southern Minnesota by the time that happens. Skies will be partly cloudy as we make the trek through Chicago and northern Indiana, with some increasing clouds in lower Michigan, where precipitation will have been much more recent. They are expecting heavy rain in eastern Michigan, so don’t be surprised if there is some fog as we arrive in Ann Arbor. Merry Christmas, everyone!
