October's Beautiful Sunsets in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:17 PM GMT on October 03, 2015

Some of the best sunsets happen on a cloudy day.  This was from last night after we had basically little sun all day long.  I didn't think that we would have a nice sunset because of the clouds, but I certainly got a surprise.  This was taken at peak color, but the sky was ablaze for about 10 minutes.  Today will be much like the last two except we won't see as much sun and the winds will be much too strong.  The rain forecast that was previously given h...

August-Like Weather in Northern Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:49 PM GMT on September 23, 2015

The campground is unusually busy this week, probably due to the unseasonable weather.  Many are taking advantage of this August-like weather while it lasts.  My son is coming up today, his last vacation for the year.  We are just so grateful for this unbelievable weather which is supposed to last the whole time that we are here.
Right now (9:15 AM EDT), out temp is 60F, the humidity is 84% and winds are calm.  Skies are cloudy and our dew point is 55...

It's Beginning To Feel LIke Autumn in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:27 PM GMT on September 11, 2015

This morning is chilly and cloudy and the feeling of fall is really in the air.  Although this isn't expected to last, we certainly know that summer is ending.  Highs today are expected to only reach the mid 60s, but the 80s will be back again next week for a few days.  I know that it will not last long but personally, I like these cooler temps.  Looking out my window, the golden rod is brilliant this year and so pretty.  I am beginning to see color on so...

A Pink Lanscape At Sunset To Finish Our Day - Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 5:28 PM GMT on September 04, 2015

After a continuous round of thunderstorms that moved through the state yesterday, the result was a rosie sunset.  Everything was pink for about 5 minutes, and fog really accentuated it.  Low pressure was parked right over our state and just sat there.  It is moving very slowly to the east today but is continuing to give us a chance for more showers and thunderstorms.  My area only received 0.28 inches but many areas of Michigan had well over an inch which ...

Rain and Fog To Start Our Sunday - Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:10 PM GMT on August 30, 2015

Yesterday was wet and yucky for a late August day, but this week will be a big improvement for us.  Above-normal temps are expected most of the week and plenty of sun.  It was very foggy this morning but now the sun is beginning to break through and it should be a nice day. 
Right now (9 AM EDT), our temperature is 68F, the humidity is 99%, and winds are calm.  The pressure is 30.06 in and rising, and visibility is only 2 miles.  Skies are mostly clo...
