If you live in the north, the answer could be.... CROSWELL, MICHIGAN!I live in a small town about 4 miles from Lake Huron (hold your right hand up, palm up: just by your thumb knuckle is me!). Small towns have always fascinated me. One of the big factories in town is a (you guessed it!) SUGAR factory. Formerly known (ok, still is known as around here) as Pioneer Sugar, the Michigan Sugar Plant in Croswell, MI is up and running at full steam.
For those of you not in the know of sugar, in the north sugar is produced by sugar beets, not sugar cane. Giant brown potato looking things. Grown locally and then trucked to Croswell and dropped off to produce sugar.
With all that you'd think I lived in the sweetest smelling town in Michigan. Not so much. The odor is ODD. Very odd. Hard to describe, but it's not good. Worse on the days when the cloud cover is low.
So now you've had your sugar lesson for the week - you can go back to scouring the internet for other useless trivia and knowledge. And yes, I am trying to keep pre-occupied so the week goes fast!! Can't you tell?
