A couple of weeks ago all of Mackinac's elementary school teachers spent the weekend at the Michigan reading Association's annual conference down in Grand Rapids. The conference was great, but getting home didn't work out quite so well. (If you enlarge that photo above you can read the warning sign for the Mackinac Bridge.)
We'd heard it was foggy in the Straits, but when we hit the Mackinac Bridge we knew we weren't going anywhere.
It was so foggy we still couldn't fly
over to the island Monday morning.
Or Monday afternoon.
Or Monday night.
Or Tuesday morning.
(Thank goodness I packed extra undies!)
Finally, by mid-day on Tuesday, there was a break in the weather and we were able to hop on a plane to get back to the island. I've got to say, it never felt so good to be home!
