I live right in the middle of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Our Great Lakes protect us from much of the extreme weather in other states.

Once again, all of the storms passed either to our north or to our south. But I guess it's a good thing because there was a lot of damage done in the Bay City area and well as the southern sections of the state. We did, however, receive 0.10" of rain overnight. On the positive side, the grass has finally quit growing. Today will be much cooler although temps will still make it into the low to mid 80s. Tomorrow will be our real relief with temps only in the upper 70s. Thursday night our AC went out on us around 10PM. It was a miserable night trying to sleep. So yesterday morning, we immediately called our service company hoping that they could make it out right away. They did well by showing up at 1 PM. The good thing was that we had to go to Detroit early in the AM so by the time we got back home, it was fixed. My youngest son was home when they arrived. Needless to say, it took all day for the AC to bring the temps back down to a comfortable level as hot as it was. Our high reached 96F and the overnight low was 70F.
