September 28


It's been a wild day here. The wind has been blowing, with gusts of up to 58 mph registered. After work today, a friend and I drove to Grand Haven to see what was happening at Lake Michigan. We had a hard time even getting pictures, because it was raining and the wind was blowing the rain and sand so hard, it was difficult to walk.
We managed to snap a few pictures although we came home soaked and covered with sand.

Mari, watch what is going on there now on the live cam. Is that a boat being blown up?

Hi Mari, I love this picture so I keep coming back and looking at it. However, I don't think I would have been as brave as you and actually gone there. I am glad that you did.
