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.

Our week in Indian River is now about over. It seems that the dry spell is about to come to an end here in northern Michigan with rain moving in from the southwest. The Indian River area should not see it until later this afternoon, but it is already showing up on radar in the southwest portion of the state. We were supposed to go home tomorrow but we may just pack up and leave today with the wet forecast that we have. I never did like packing up in the rain. So this may be our final day here in this lovely place. We certainly cannot complain about the weather that we have had. It has been perfect. If only it could have hung on for one more day.
Right now (9:30 AM EDT), our temp is 68F, the humidity is 82%, the dew point is 62F, and the pressure is 29.95"and falling. Visibility is 10 miles. Winds are calm Yesterday's high was 80F and the overnight low was 56F. We have cloudy skies this morning.
