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

Mother Nature is finally being kind to us this week. We are having seasonable weather for the first time in about 5 months. I see folks out there with no coats although that's stretching it a bit in my opinion, but the sun really does feel very warm in spite of the chilly breeze. Late yesterday, the sky looked like it was trying a brew a shower or two but nothing happened. We are happy for that because we certainly don't need anymore water to add to th...

Today really seems like a March day with rain, clouds and wind. It isn't very nice for being outdoors but after what we have had, 40 degree temps seem balmy indeed. We continue to lose a little snow each day and even much of the ice on ponds and lakes. There was 0.17 inches of rain in my gauge this morning and light rain has continued since then. The sun has peeked out once but has since disappeared again. I don't have much hope for seeing many rays today...

With the position of the sun, our day does have a look of spring to it, but unfortunately the temps aren't following. We are still far below where we should be for early March but it feels quite nice in the sunny areas. The sun is warm enough that it is melting some of the snow in spite of below-freezing temps. If we didn't have so many icy spots on the road, I'd venture out for a walk this afternoon. Hopefully, I'll be able to do that soon.
Right now (1:...

Yesterday turned out to be not as bad as was predicted. We received no freezing rain as the precip began as all snow and quite heavy at that. The first squall that passed was moderate to heavy leaving about 1/4 inch which melted right away. Then a little later, the rain set in and was quite heavy at times. We received 0.49 inches. Around 9 PM, we had some thunder and lightning but that storm passed to our west and we just received a few sprinkles. We los...

We received a llittle wet snow yesterday morning but it seemed to melt right away. We have sun once again this morning with mostly clear skies and that makes for a very cheery landscape. One local meteorologist is warning that we have another significant snow event coming which could drop up to 5 inches of snow early next week. Oh no! The good part is that temps will be in the mid to upper 40s following that, so what we get will melt right away as well as most ...
