Weather forecast for tonight: dark. ~ George Carlin

I awoke to rolling claps of thunder this morning that seemed to resound thru the heavens forever. The rain was drumming down on the roof and lightning flashed and lit up the bedroom. I can not remember ever waking up to a thunder storm when I lived in Oregon.

Yesterday Dear Hubby and I took a drive to West Bloomfield early in the morning. He has been a bow hunter for many years and had heard about the Detroit Archers club, one that Fred Bear, a legend in the archery world, had been a member of. There was a pea-soup fog and it was 44 degrees as we left Livonia. We didn't see much of the surrounding countryside during our drive. We could barely see 10 feet in front of us. But once we got home the fog lifted so quickly it was hard to believe it had ever been here. And within a short span of time it was 82 degrees.

Since arriving here in Michigan, natives have been telling me if you don't like the weather, wait. It'll change in 5 minutes.

You know what? They're telling the truth

Sounds like our spring here too. I guess soon it will warm up for real.

We're subject to changeable weather, too.
I wonder what it will be like living in our sixth floor suite.

So much to learn about a new environment. Enjoy and marvel at all of your new discoveries. :)

Same goes for Kansas. We've recently had temperature in the upper 70's or low 80's, the next day it was barely 50's. That was last week. One day the air conditioner feels good, the next we turn on the heater. Have a Blessed EASTER.
