Mackinac Moment

If I had to sum up yesterday in a word, it would have to be "blizzard." It wasn't particularly cold (it was 10 degrees, which was warmer than the day before) but it was blowing like stink. We had 40 mile (about 64 km) an hour winds pretty much all day. Two of our teachers, who had left the island early in the morning to go to a professional development class in Sault Ste. Marie, ended up turning around when the driving conditions got really bad. The farther north they drove, the worse the roads got; less than halfway to the Soo they turned around and headed back south. Things got so bad the State Police closed I-75 and US-2 due to poor visibility, and the Mackinac Bridge Authority closed the bridge due to high winds. So glad I was safe at home...

We have been encased in fog for a week, with brilliant sunshine at higher elevations. I am listening to the fog horn right now.
