She's 5'11" (I really, really love tall girls! Inside joke...) and I believe she's now 25 (math isn't my strong suit anymore...). She's on that other place, #4634.

My problem's with the upper midwest weather started when I spent many years in the mid-Altantic states, Virginia and North Carolina. They will spoil you forever for upper midwest winters. You just get to missing blue skies so much...
I also spent a year or so in Minnesota. Now that will make Michigan seem almost like heaven, except for the blue skies thing.
