We can all agree that this is some bullshit. It's going to snow tonight ... and tomorrow. It is April.

Thanks to Southwest Airlines, you might be able to GTFO for the price of a pothole tire repair or a weekend of binge drinking to numb the pain of realizing that living in Michigan is a choice and you have made that choice because you are a masochist.

Book an outgoing flight by April 19 to take advantage of the deal. The tickets are nonrefundable and are only valid for domestic travel from April 24-June 13 and August 21-October 31.  Blackout dates include May 24-25, August 31 and September 3. Oh! Also, you have to purchase tickets 21 days in advance.

To Atlanta - $85
To Baltimore/Washington - $94
To Chicago (Midway) -$81
To Dallas - $113
To Denver - $135
To Nashville - $95
To St. Louis - $128
