An Overnight Thundershower Gives Way to a Sunny Morning - Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:02 PM GMT on August 13, 2015

We sat outdoors last night until about 1 AM looking for the meteor showers but didn't see much. I guess they become more frequent around 3-4 AM, but who wants to be out there at that time of the morning. I sure don't. At any rate, they weren't very impressive. I woke to the sound of thunder around 4 AM and realized that there wouldn't be any visible meteor showers anyway. I checked the radar on my iPhone and found a storm which was moving from north to so...

Near Perfect Weather in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 12:48 PM GMT on August 05, 2015

We have had wonderful weather since Sunday and it should continue for another few days at least.  Our highs are only in the mid 70s to around 80F, and nights are in the 50s.  That's perfect weather for me.  I always love it when we can have the windows open and air out the house.  Today is expected to be dry and close to perfect for a summer day.  There are no complaints from me.
Right now (8:45 AM EDT), our temp is 60F, the humid...

Finally, Some Normal Summer Weather in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:13 PM GMT on July 22, 2015

The past few days have been very nice with normal temperatures for a change and plenty of sun. Hopefully, it will be a while before we have anymore hard rain. My husband sprayed the yard for mosquitoes and that seemed to have taken care of that problem. I can't remember when mosquitoes have ever been as bad as this year. The next few days should be sunny and warm but Saturday brings another chance for rain. Hopefully, it will be light if it happens at all...

Another Lovely Day For Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 12:40 PM GMT on July 16, 2015

We returned home yesterday and had beautiful weather all day.  Temps were in the low 70s with light winds.  It was perfect in my book.  Today will be about the same, then there is more rain expected over the next few days.  Monday brought some big storms to this area and we received 1.5" of rain Monday and Tuesday.  There was very little up north where we were.  Today will be spent mowing the lawn and getting ready for the next ra...

Anther Excessive Rain Day in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:02 PM GMT on June 27, 2015

Of course, since my husband mowed the lawn yesterday, we have to get another bout of heavy rain.  Yesterday, it was said that most would miss our area, but that isn't what I'm seeing this morning.  I already measured 0.22" at 8:15 AM and it has continued to come down quite hard since then.  One of the Detroit stations showed that we could see up to two inches of rain before it is all done tomorrow.  Yippee!!!  Is there no end to this?&...
