Snow here too; everything was covered when I got up this morning; there are still a few patches here and there that haven't melted yet, and I have quite a bit on my porch where the sun didn't quite reach today.

According to our local paper, there were 5 people in one of the mobile homes when it flipped over, and they made it out with only minor injuries, and those are the only people I know of that were hurt. A local business here in town lost their roof too.

Now they are saying the damage was from straight line winds, 75-80 mph, only lasting 3-5 minutes. It's hard to believe how much damage can be caused in just a short amount of time.

We had a scary storm here in Big Rapids last night, around 9pm; no watches or warnings, it came up rather suddenly and blew through here fast. Knocked the power out too; mine was out from around 9pm until 10am this morning.

I didn't realize how much damage the storm did til I went this morning; there are 4-5 uprooted trees in my neighborhood, and once the power came back on and I was able to get on Facebook, I learned the power was out for the whole town, trees down all over, and roofs damaged. In one part of the county there were also 2 mobile homes flipped over. It hasn't been confirmed yet, but I suspect we may have had a small tornado.

There's no place like home...there's no place like home.
We are still in Florida but I am getting excited to be returning to Northern Michigan in two weeks. I miss springtime there. The air is so fresh as the snow melts off. Bud springing up and waterfalls of melting snow. The cracking of ice as Lake Michigan ice turns to floating iceburgs.
Did not miss winter this year but do miss spring time.

Just had some flurries today. I just Can Not wait for spring to come. Looking forward to longer walks with my dog. Really want to try couch to 5K this spring and summer. Took a ride to the beach (Lake Huron) to see the ice. Wow. It's on it's way down towards the river. Our beautiful Lakeside beach park will be getting a complete makeover within the next year. Love our Michigan beaches!

The play was good! It was sexier than I expected, but that made it fun.

Today I have nothing on my schedule! So I can do what I feel like doing. I love days like this!

Tonight is date night with hubby. We're going out for dinner and then to a play at Meadowbrook Theatre. Tonight is Lysistrata Jones. It's a comedy about the battle of the sexes. Sounds cute. We've been buying season tickets for about 4 years and have really enjoyed the performances.

I'm enjoying the sunshine! My driveway is finally cleared of the ice that's been stuck to it for so long!!

I never have, but it sounds cool!

We had about 8 inches of snow from that last storm, but it warmed up to 43 here today, and a lot of it has been melting and dripping off the roof.

The sun is shining, it is 37 degrees in Taylor and ice is melting. This morning I had ice over the front part of the driveway from the dripping off the roof and gutters overnight, it's gone now.

Hopefully will not have a repeat of that tomorrow.

I have no idea where ants would be coming from this time of year either, but that would freak me out. I have a phobia about ants, even the teeny tiny ones.

We had some brief light snow flurries here too late this afternoon.

Our Dairy Queen has already open at least a couple of weeks, and surprisingly, even doing business on the days we have had wind chill advisories.

Very light snow flurries outside my window this afternoon. It was nice to see the sun most of the day yseterday. Dairy Queen opens March 1st....Spring is coming!

I am seeing carpenter ants and wonder where the heck they are coming from. There is still close to twenty inches of snow on the ground around our home. This is a sign of Spring that I could do without!

Last night we returned from a weekend with friends in their beautiful Gladwin, MI home. It overlooks a large snow-covered lake and we could see all the crazy ice-fishermen out there hoping to catch dinner! It really was a beautiful sight (from inside the warm house!)

Tomorrow we leave Michigan for a week in San Diego. We will visit my son who is stationed there and take a run up to Huntington Beach over the weekend to visit my brother! Can't wait!

It's freezing, but the sun is shining which always gives hope to Spring at some point!

Feeling a bit "blah" today and not quite sure why other than Winter doldrums. I will hop on the exercise bike and pump up the volume on my CD player with some good "workout" music and see if I can chase those away.

Have a safe and happy Weekend!

I've noticed the streets falling apart, too! This Michigan weather is tough on pavement! I'm not a bit fan of having salt spread everywhere, but sometimes I guess it helps.

Called City Hall yesterday to ask if something could be done about the profileration of potholes on my street. They've gotten so bad if you swerve to miss one you run into two others. I was told a program was already in place for April. APRIL????? sheesh!

I wonder if I can get the mayor to shop for and deliver my groceries until then?

So far today, cold and clear with 3-5 inches of snow coming tonight into tomorrow. At least for now we seem to be past the below zero stuff.....HOPE SPRINGS ETERNAL....in more way than one LOL!

OH man there was a kitten bowl? I totally missed that !

Spent an hour yesterday chipping ice off the front sidewalk. My knees and back are letting me know it this morning. I will still get in some fitness, just not overly strenuos ones until it's heald again.

Hoping the sun today melts off more of it.

I'm enjoying a quiet day at home today; it's only reached 21 so far, but some of the snow is starting to melt on the roof with the sun shining.

Looking forward to watching the Puppy Bowl and the Kitten Bowl later on today.

Happy Super Bowl Sunday! We don't have any plans or parties to attend, but that's fine with me. I'm really looking forward to a quiet day with my hubby.

The snow is absolutely beautiful today! I'm actually looking forward to getting outside to shovel the driveway and maybe take a little walk around the neighborhood.

Stay warm!

It seems like we all talk about the weather LOL....must be Michigan!

On tap for today is general housecleaning, laundry is already started and bathrooms are cleaned. I plan on losing myself in my Kindle for at least an hour this afternoon.

Super Bowl Sunday fare at our house (it's just my husband and I) will be a roast turkey with mashed potatoes, peas and sf/ff chocolate pudding with bananas and RediWhip.

IF he stays up late enough to watch the game (doubtful) we will have apples to munch on.

Have a great weekend everybody!

I am laughing about that Christmas greenery donation hitchhiking on the Purple Heart truck!

We did get out of the house yesterday and today the weather is going to be great until later in the day when some more snow comes.

Almost the end of the month and well on track for my 40 hours of fitness in first 40 days of 2014 (FB challenge I joined) at 35.5 hours for 29 days.....thank you SparkPeople!

Make it a great one team!

The Purple Heart truck came by today to pick up a few donations that we had. He backed into our driveway and hit one of our pine tree branches which was hanging too low. As he drove away a huge chunk of tree branch was stuck to the side of his truck! I got a good chuckle out of that! I'm sure he'll be surprised at his next stop to see that we also donated a tree branch!!

A little warmer today, but, not bymuch, I know it has been cold for such a long time. I went to Card Ministry this morning and then did some Grocery Shopping.

I have to say I was so happy to leave the house today and get back to work. The roads were ok but the temp is still low. My kids are still out of school today. They want to get back to normal. Since I don't have a scale at home I use the one at work and I am down 1.7 lbs from last week. YAY for snow shovels.

I know what you mean Susan! I honestly don't remember the weather being so cold for so long before! It's getting very old. I think I'll be making a run to the store today, too; just to get out of the house.

On the bright side, the sun is shining today emoticon

After getting all the way to -9 this morning, it's now a balmy 6+ in Taylor, MI this afternoon. Going to 0 overnight and then I think we are better the rest of the week.

We are all getting cabin fever and snapping at each other, really need to get out in the sunshine tomorrow, even if just for a ride to the store!

Thanks Rosie; I am anxious to get it and see what all is on it; I was so surprised and excited that I won that I didn't really get a good look at it before I confirmed my address, lol. I didn't even notice the DVD on the wheel before I spun it, so it really surprised me when it popped up.

From Warren, MI. Snow and cold here as other parts of Michigan. I had my snow shovel exercise yesterday and looks like we will have a bit more today. I am trying to focus on getting more protein in my diet. I finally lost that stubborn holiday weight gain and one more pound besides! I just want to continue to chose healthy food choices and hopefully that will help me achieve my goal someday.

According to reports on the weather site I check online, we ended up with 10 inches of snow in Big Rapids since Friday morning. That's the most we've had within a 24 hour period in quite a long time.

Some good news for me though, I won a Spark exercise DVD on the Spark wheel today!

Hello Janice and thank you. We live in Manistique. I usually don't air my personal life, but this week has been rough on us. After reading the first post my heart sank for that lady and I guess I had a moment of weakness, unlike me. :-) Where are you from?

I used to work with a woman who LOVED snow, whenever we got a bad storm, we blamed her for doing her "snow dance" lol.

I got out for groceries today; it was still pretty cold out, but better than it was earlier in the week. The store was busy, I think a lot of other just got out today, for things other than work.

Thank you Rosie and Janice. emoticon

I was scheduled for chemo tomorrow, but my oncologist and his nurse are not coming up here because of the weather. His office is in Grand Rapids, but they come to our hospital's specialty clinic for the patients here. I'm glad to be able to wait til next week.

I did have to go out today and move the car for the plow, but thankfully, the snow brushed off of it easily, and I was just thankful it started!

Rosie I have not been to Beaver Island since I was a kid but the locals say it has not changed much. The boat leaves from my hometown of Charlevoix. Each year the 4th graders from school go there in the spring. My grandgirls said it was interesting.
We skipped out of Michigan for the winter and are now in Florida. No snow but freeze warnings are up for tomorrow night.

Rosie, I wish I were able to get out and work, but I can't because of my health issues related to my cancer. I also need to use a cane when I am out, so that makes it challenge for me to get around when the weather is bad too.

It's been snowing here lightly, but steadily, for about 3 hours now. There will probably be just enough for me to have to move my car for the plow.

I've never been to Beaver Island but have heard it's real nice.

Hello Michigan. I have not stopped by this group for a long while so thought I would drop in. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

I am ready for some good changes in life. Christmas photos yesterday I do not like. I have taken some backward steps and now time to reverse and move forward. Good by to the holiday treats. They are now off my list of munchies. Hello to veggies and fruits again.

DPRYER, I live in Big Rapids!
I've only been in our Aldi a couple of times so far; I have found a few things there I like, but they don't have everything I need, and with my health issues it's too hard for me to shop more than one store in a week, so I usually just go to Aldi once per week to stock up on some of my favorites there.

ROSIE, Aldi is discount grocery chain; they don't have a lot of variety, but they have great prices. They save money by having the customers bag their own groceries, and to use a cart, you have to put a quarter in it for a "deposit", but you get the quarter back when you return the cart to the corral. This way, they aren't paying for employees to go out and collect carts.

We go to Big Rapids when we want to go to the "big" store. Checked out Aldi, it is nice but too much eye candy for me. I know what I need to buy at Save a Lot and Walmart but get totally distracted in Aldi not to mention hungry!! Love the Meiijer's but the prices are only good if things are on sale or you have the m-perks.

What would you attempt, if you knew you could not fail?

Snowing again! Good morning to everyone- looks like we will be having our white Christmas. Our family tradition is to go sledding on Christmas day. Lasy year that didn't work out too well and before I couldn't go because of gout. I think I may actually get to sled this year.... well maybe I'll just go :)

All of the Carters stores up around here all went out of business a long time ago, too. there was not one here, in this town, though. The closet Meijers and walmarts up here are in Gaylord, Houghton Lake has Walmart, but no Meijers.

Other than the Aldi, we have Sav A Lot, Meijer, and Walmart.
We use to have a couple of nice grocery stores, but they went out of business years ago when Meijer came into town the Walmart became a Supercenter. I really liked our old Carters grocery store; they had baggers that would take the groceries out to the car and load them for you; a lot of the elderly people shopped at that store for that reason.
