    Storms

    A few nights ago we had a pretty wicked storm roll through West Michigan. I think the Chicago crew might have gotten the same one. We had tornado warnings in my county and I think 2 other ones east of me. I don't remember a storm like this ever...it was so much lightning. I took a couple videos. This first one was while it was still offshore over Lake Michigan, the second one is when it was pretty much right over us...not the greatest video because of all the trees around me, but you can get a feel for how much lightning there was.

    I will fill ya in when the Hurricanes blow on in! Last storm the water was 6 inches from coming in the house. I'm lucky I live on the water. When the water level gets high when the tide goes out so does the water around the house
