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.

After spending 10 days at Platte River, we noticed a big change in the leaves. There was almost no color when we drove up, but now much more especially in the northern portions of the state. Here at home there is a little. I guess winter is really on its way. Our weather over the past week has been sporadic with summer one day and late fall the next. This week will be the same with mid 80s expected on Tuesday and low 70s the rest of the week. I really hope the warmth lasts well into October. There was 1.70" inches of rain in my gauge so there was more rain here than what we received at Platte River. We only had one rainy day and that lasted only about 5 hours, then it became sunny. All in all, we had great weather. Unlike last year, we had no total washouts.
