    Batten down the hatches! Big storm coming through..calling for up to 50 MPH winds and large hail...i am north of Detroit.
    i am home alone, husband drove his motorcycle up north this morning, just me and the furbabies. I am so thankful that my dogs are not freaked out by storms!

    Stay safe Watterstide. My kitties hate storms, they look for places to hide.

    My daughter is in the SW corner of MI and is without power right now, so it's coming your way.
    Go down to the basement and turn your music up loud.....you won't even hear the wind as it whizzes by.

    It's real windy in the southern UP right now but the skies are clear. The worst of the storm that we were supposed to get is going south of us now. I hate storms at night, in hot, sticky tornado weather!

    If you go to the basement, make sure you take your sewing machine to keep it safe too!LOL Put a cooler in the basement ahead of time with drinks in case you're down there a while too. And don't forget the furkids!

    All good here this morning..no damage. the sirens went off last night..but i was watching the news, and the weatherman said they will go off when winds reach 60/70 mph.
    didn't know that.
    i crawled in bed with the dogs, and we watched the weather, the patio doors are next to me bed. the wind was really something! not much rain..i think they said we only had 1/2 inch here in wayne county.
    unfortunatly,1 fatality. a tree came down on a moving car, killed the driver, the passengers are ok. lots of lightening and fires, a few houses burned down. one in Saline,but not near me.
    more storms heading to Kentucky..Blessings to all in harms way..
