Question

Well the weather still stinks here got more snow again. enough already I am looking for spring time.

Well it's good that you guys are getting the Cars and trucks taken care of. Down here the dealers turn over in Staff prevents anyone from know anything about the vehicles. Unless you bring it to them signed from a higher power they are dumbfounded.

Okay I got the Voters thread up on the Contest for Sunup and Sundown.

Good morning guys.

First day of spring is next Wednesday - only 9 days away! We're suppose to hit a high of 38 degrees today and then gradually warming each day to a high of 67 on Thursday.

Pic of the Day - Kitch-iti-kipi, which means 'big cold water', is located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula and is the State's largest natural freshwater spring. It is 300' x 175' in surface size and is 40' deep. The spring water flows out of limestone fissures at 10,000 gallons per minute and at a constant temp of 45 degrees. A self-operated 'raft' guides visitors out over the water with a totally clear sight to the bottom.

Good morning guys.

19 degrees this morning, going up to a high of 46 today.

Pic of the Day - Pictured Rocks National Lakeshore, sandstone cliffs located on the shore of Lake Superior in Michigan's Upper Peninsula. It also includes beaches, sand dunes, waterfalls, inland lakes and deep forest. It extends for 42 miles, covers 114 square miles and can some of the cliffs can reach 200' above the water. The streaks on the face of the rock come from groundwater leaching out leaving streaks of red (iron), manganese (black/white), limonite (yellow/brown), copper (pink/green) and other minerals. In the winter, it is an ice cave, ice formation and ice climbing destination.

Good morning guys.

50 degrees this morning, going up to 60 today. Chance of thunderstorms, possibly severe, this afternoon and evening. Yesterday was sunny and broke 50 degrees as well - cracked the windows in the car on the way home and opened some windows in the house - nice to get some fresh air.

Pic of the Day - The Grand Hotel on Michigan's Mackinac Island. Built in 1887, it has been family owned for three generations. It sits on a hill overlooking the Straits of Mackinac and the Mackinac Bridge. The hotel has 397 rooms (no two are the same) and seven of which were designed, and are named after, seven former First Ladies of the U.S. The front porch is the longest in the world at 660'.

Wow I enjoy the History of the these old buildings. Meanwhile back in NE the weather is F******** F******* up. yesterday we lost all the snow we had when it rained and now the flooding has begun to shut down roads. And right now the wind is over 45 mph and it is Snowing. Mother Nature is P*ssed for sure.

Good morning guys.

I agree Dean, Mother Nature is pissed.

We had our first severe weather of the year move through last night about 7-9 pm. We were under a tornado warning at one point for a radar indicated tornado warned cell that passed 5 miles south of us - this one was never confirmed. There was a confirmed tornado touchdown 35 miles North of us that went through the Durand area - this tornado was witnessed by multiple people that shot pics and video (see below). An estimated 70 structures in the area have damage. NWS will survey the area today.

Unhappy Anyway if you read this and you pray save one for these brave folks.

Well the weekend has brought some nice weather and much needed Sunshine. Got into Lincoln, NE on Friday did some much needed supply shopping. But for the part of the State that is 50 miles north of me. those folks are going thru a huge set back, flooding is terrible. Sunday AM I got a call from a lady I have known for about 10 years and she is not able to get to her home, she figures water is inside the house and she has a horse that is at her house and has not seen her since last Thursday.
She was waiting for a call that the water level had receded enough to get home.
She was describing what it might look like to me inside her house and it was a tear jerker for sure.
Yesterday a fleet of trucks from the HYVee chain was able to get food and supplies thru to Fremont, NE who had not seen anything for a week they had been surrounded by water.
the NG, NHP, and the NDOT got then thru. great job!!
Anyway if you read this and you pray save one for these brave folks.

Good morning guys.

Dean, those pictures are nuts. The weather really has been crazy in recent years and seems like it's just getting crazier.

The NWS actually confirmed four tornadoes during our severe weather outbreak last Thursday: three EF-0 and one EF-2. All four of those were just North of us in Shiawassee County. And there's a remarkable story with the EF-2 tornado: an elderly woman was sitting in her living room when the tornado hit - it moved her house off the foundation and dropped it into the basement - she was found afterward by her son unharmed. The story on it is here (starts at 1:00):
