Up here in Michigan it’s been unseasonably warm. I’m loving it. In the 80s today, tomorrow’s high will be in the 50s. I guess all good things must end.
The changing weather created an interesting sky and I ran over to a local park to watch.
Our weather is, however, nothing at all compared to what’s happening in Florida, Georgia and Alabama right now.
Hurricane Michael, roaring up from the Gulf is going to go right over the top of most of my siblings. They live many miles from the coast, but this storm isn’t slowing down even now that it’s reached land.
They’re hunkered down and I’m sure all will be well.
But all of that weather sure makes me appreciate my relatively calm Michigan skies up here.

I am here in the FL Panhandle and Michael struck to the east of me. Three hours away by car, but the damage to the part of old Florida is awful. Heading onto the mainland, it is still going strong. My heart breaks for everyone’s loss. I hope your siblings are OK.

I think it’s east of Columbus GA now…I think 2 of them dodged a bullet. The other one is in Charlotte NC.

Thanks, Dawn. That shift to the east put us in the clear. Sadly, not for the other part of the Panhandle.

I know. It looks bad.

We’re so lucky to be out of the path of hurricanes. When I lived on the Mississippi Gulf Coast, I went through several, and it wasn’t fun, especially the cleanup afterwards. Oh, and the inconvenience of power outages and debris everywhere. Prayers that your family is okay and that the thing will wear itself out before doing too much damage. Lovely shots here, Dawn!

The two hunkered down at the Alabama/Georgia line dodged a bullet when it went slightly south and east of them. The one (and his family) in Charlotte just got rain. We were lucky. This hurricane looks like a tornado to me, moved so fast and left such destruction even when it was past the water. Seems like people didn’t have time to get ready like they usually do with a hurricane. That felt like a tornado too.

Beautiful pictures. Hope all your friends and family are safe.

So far I think everyone I know is OK. But oh there was a lot of destruction! I’m lucky all my friends and family ended up outside of the worst of it.

Hurricane Michael ushered in cooler weather. This Alabama summer was miserably humid and I’m rejoicing in the 46’F nights!!!

Beautiful images. I hope Michael wasn’t too destructive to your people. What a terrible storm he turned out to be.
