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

Too Much Rain in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 12:22 PM GMT on June 18, 2015


We received another 0.42" of rain overnight giving us a total of 4.72" of rain since June 1.  I think we have had enough.  There is more on the way for this afternoon so they are saying.  I found out yesterday that an EF0 tornado struck during Monday's storms just southeast of Durand.  There were no watches or warnings at the time.  Although pictures of it looked quite impressive, it was quite weak and didn't do too much damage.  ...

Our holiday weekend is turning out to be very nice.  Yesterday was wonderful with temps in the mid 70s and clear skies all day.  Anyone traveling this weekend in Michigan haS beautiful weather.  All of my kids are at home and we had a campfire in the yard last night.  My younger son's birthday is Tuesday, so we're including that in our celebration this weekend.  My oldest son has to go back home today because he has to work tomorrow, and the Indianapolis ...
