We are slowly making the rounds to visit family and friends.
It is difficult to catch up with everyone and spend equal time with each person/family. We just have our oldest son and his family (which the grandkids probably won't even be around), our youngest son and his family (which grandkids are supposed to be around), my best friend Annne and her hubby Mike (no kids, just pets) and I THINK that about covers it.
A couple of nights ago, the weather was very bad in this area. In fact there were 72 mph winds. In Schoolcraft, at an RV dealership, several RV's were destroyed due to the winds. We were without power for about 3 hours (no big deal; slept through that part!). Where we are staying between Mendon and Three Rivers (in our 5th wheel), was about on the outskirts of the worst of the storm, but we DID beat foot it over to my sister's house for about 45 minutes during the middle of the night. That man on the NOAA weather radio told us to seek shelter immediately, danger was eminent.
And there is a possibility of severe weather today...let me think....didn't we drive like crazy to keep ahead of the storms??? And then we get here and have this. Oh, well, this IS Michigan! And these April showers will bring MUSHROOMS!!! And of course, mosquitoes.
