Living in Michigan can be exciting. We can have every weather condition known to man happening in the State at one time.

What a difference a day makes. Yesterday brought summer-like temps but today is completely different. We sat outdoors last night until about midnight enjoying possibly the last of our warm temps. It was 70F when we went to bed. Winds picked up shortly after that as the cold front moved in. This morning feels and looks like autumn. Severe weather was expected but it all remained well to our south. We did, however, get some heavy rain. There was ...

We haven't seen many days this summer where it actually felt like summer. But today is one that does. Not only are there warm temps but it is quite humid and muggy feeling. Any one who loves summer weather will certainly be happy today. More heat is in our forecast for early next week, and we could see the 90s for the first time this season. It would certainly be nice if this weather carried over into September. We have had clouds most of the morni...

Our week in Indian River is now about over. It seems that the dry spell is about to come to an end here in northern Michigan with rain moving in from the southwest. The Indian River area should not see it until later this afternoon, but it is already showing up on radar in the southwest portion of the state. We were supposed to go home tomorrow but we may just pack up and leave today with the wet forecast that we have. I never did like packing up in the...

Although the brunt of our storms amounted to heavy rain, some hail and strong winds, my area escaped the worst that Mother Nature dealt out yesterday afternoon. Areas just north of Detroit seemed to be hardest hit with many large trees falling on houses, lightning strikes and street flooding. A few areas in the thumb region also had many trees down and other property damage done from strong winds. Needless to say, there are many without electricity this mo...

Our Sunday morning is beginning with very warm temps. Our 9:30 AM temp is already 73F. We had more heavy thunderstorms move over the state overnight giving us 0.53" of rainfall. Some areas received over 2 inches. I notice that some of the leaves on my flowers are turning yellow, probably from being overwatered. We didn't receive any severe storms but rain is something that we don't need anymore of for a while. We have already received 3.18" of rain t...
