Squint Shot 040809
You would not have to look very far around the Fowlerville area to find a "Michigan Basement," the walls of one such basement shown in today's squint shot. A Michigan basement, also sometimes called a Long Island basement (guess it depends on where you live), is a basement that has not been finished, usually having a dirt floor and stone, cement, or cinder block walls (or a combination), and is quite often damp with a unique odor of dampness, dirt, and musty mildew.Not necessarily a very pretty description, but a Michigan basement has its own charm and history. This particular wall can be found in the low-slung basement under Shear Image.
