4. Driving through that yesterday was a real trip...

Descended from the North (Hale) to Green Oak township, meeting up with our daughter to drive to Richland (near Kalamazoo, kinda) for my great-niece’s first birthday. Returning, traveling across I-96 we drove (or should I say dove?) straight into that freaking mess.

There were times you could not see more than 50 feet in front of you the rain was that hard. Cars were pulling off to the shoulder to wait for a break in the downpour which never came quickly.
On the road most cars were traveling with their emergency flashers on creeping along at about 35-40 mph.

Wasn’t the worst rainstorm I’ve ever driven through but definitely ranked as number two.
Got back safe and sound to Green Oak…going back to the friendly North country in a couple hours from now. Hope we received at least some of this rain in Hale getting kinda “crunchy” up there.

I know we got a little portion of the storm, hope it puts a dent in the drought, oh Hale yes.
