Not just Michigan, either...most of the Midwest will be devastated. They just don't get that it spreads out into everything.
We are ok for now but we no longer own our own home, which is emotionally so scarring for us. And the hit on my DH's self-esteem has been ENORMOUS. His job is tied to the Auto Industry but not at a Tier 1 level, more like Tier 2-3. He does tech support for the software engineers that contract to the Big Three. So the less engineers there are to support, the less tech support that's needed. He's just working his butt off and we're praying and praying.
Anyway, to the OP...I'm sorry to hijack. I just couldn't read this thread without responding, too.
((((hugs to all))))
