Question

It was ultra windy here yesterday there was a 20 Car pile up on I-80 the NSP shut 1-80 down and every one was rerouted to nearby roads.
Here are a few photo's I got from facebook. I am not sure who the pilot was taking them( maybe Stringfellow Hawk)?. The wind was nuts.

Good morning guys, can't believe May is here.

Made it up to 72 yesterday and today shows a high of 81. We have a red flag warning for this afternoon/evening - high fire danger I guess.

That's crazy. Reminds me of our lake effect snow up here in Michigan. Same effect... clear one second, can't see 20 feet in front of you the next.

Good morning guys.

Already 75 degrees this morning, going up to 80. Made it up to 85 degrees yesterday - just 1 degree below the record at Detroit Metro!

The 2018 tornado drought was broken yesterday in Kansas, first ones of the year they've seen. Also reports in Nebraska and possibly one in Oklahoma. More severe weather moving up through the Plains, Midwest, Great Lakes and Northeast through Thursday. Be on alert!

Good morning guys. Got the yard cut last night for the first time this year. We had some pretty good storms move through last night too - lots of lightning and heavy rain. Looks like more severe weather moving up through the Plains, Great Lakes and Northeast through tonight. Be on alert!

Good morning guys, 15 days til our Spring Meet!

We're clearing up today and are under a high wind warning, as we could see gusts up to 60 mph, and a slight thunderstorm risk.

Pretty cool news - the Detroit Zoo is considering building a big aquarium in Downtown Detroit along the river. It would be the largest aquarium in the State.

Mel, good to hear from you! Glad to hear you are doing better. My mom had a fight with cancer twelve years ago that she unfortunately did not win. Just curious, did you find a new home for your Monte?
