Uh-oh.. we're in trouble!

Living in Michigan has its ups and downs.. one of the downs is the weather, which seems to be constantly changing. This is mostly due to the proximity of the lakes, which often take normal, harmless weather and turn it into insanity. We're looking down the barrel of some insanity tonight! Earlier this evening we had a couple of storm systems pass to our north and south, almost at the same time. Close call, right? Well, look at what's staring us right in the face!! The black and white square that I've circled is about where our house is, and that giant storm system is moving northeast, right at us. Wish me luck that our house doesn't blow down overnight!


Update: We made it through the night with no major disasters, just a lot of rain. I get a lot more nervous since we moved into our new house, because it's a mobile home, and we have no basement if there are tornados. Our community has no shelter of any sort either, so we'd have to do some driving to find somewhere safe if there was a tornado heading for us. I've seen Twister too many times to think that might be a good idea!!!

Glad to hear that it turned out just to be rain. We're having rain here today which doesn't make my leg any too happy but we really need it so I'm just going to have to suck it up for the good of the environment!
