More Wind, Rain for Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 2:06 PM GMT on November 18, 2015

Yesterday began with cloudy skies and the promise of rain . . . . which never happened.  In fact, the sky cleared in the afternoon and it turned out to be a lovely day.  Radar showed all of the showers either skirting us to the north or falling apart before getting here.  The same with last night.   Which was more surprising was that our temp never dropped much below 60° overnight.  Unfortunately, it was much too windy to have the wind...

High Wind Advisories For Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 3:30 PM GMT on November 11, 2015

We always seem to get the "gales of November" about this time of the month.  Beginning tonight, our weather will take a plunge and high winds and possible thunderstorms are predicted.  The Watch begins at 6 PM tonight and all day tomorrow.  I'm glad that I don't have to go anywhere.  Like Pat Murphy, I hope that our power remains intact.  We do have a generator but it's a pain to use it.  This morning is the quiet before the storm, with mostly clear skies and ...

The Colors Are Fading Fast in Mid Michigan

By: chatcat, 1:07 PM GMT on October 23, 2015

I have noticed that our colors haven't been as brilliant this year as in the past.  The reds were more of a brownish red as were the yellows.  After the strong winds a few days ago, many trees are already bare, especially the soft wood trees.  The maples and oaks still continue to have a lot of color but not for long.  There is frost this morning although mainly away from buildings.   Dew on the cars near the house just appear wet, not frozen.  Yesterda...

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...
