I am a teacher and I enjoy living along Lake Michigan. It is a beautiful place that makes me feel like I am on vacation all year long!

It is a sad truth here in Holland, MI that when a hurricane is in the Gulf it brings us pleasant, calm weather. I have hear it explained that the hurricane blocks the systems that meander their way from west to east across the country. It seems that the systems move more slowly this time of year and when a big low pressure is blocking them, the weather stays in a rather stagnant, non stormy circumstance for those of us in the midwest.
Our day today is hazy, warm and humid. The breeze is light and we have not had any measurable rain in our rain gauge for about a month. The weeds along the bike path are slightly wilted and the grass has a yellowish straw color from lack of rain. My daylilies have been blooming since early July and now are just about finished. A few blossoms are left to appear, but only a few. Tomatoes are ripening, sunflowers are just beginning to show a blossom, cosmos and zinnias have more leaves than flowers. A late frost will allow us to see their full potential.
Comments will take a few seconds to appear.
