    I am so saddened by the two deaths in Fremont. Some bloggers tend to make light of thunderstorms. They can be deadly or take away your home. I’ve been there. It is not LOL.

    Yes Hugh, very sad indeed.
    Watching the news last nite the neighbors talked about how they all worried about that particular tree though. GET A TREE COMPANY TO COME OUT AND LOOK YOUR TREES OVER! Let them recommend what should be done to make your yard safe..or at least safer…We have a tree guy come here to the neighborhood and look over the situation and then act on what he finds. One major HOLLOW oak right next to our house and one next to the garage have been removed. The one next to the house looked fine but in reality was an accident waiting to happen. Money well spent to save an accident that didn’t happen.

    DanielG, you are correct. Everyone should check and repair areas where there is a potential threat. However, one cannot know where lightning will strike with no trees involved. The power is there to destroy, even in a thunderstorm.

    I was getting some awesome radio reception yesterday and lots of Radio stations from the Lower Peninsula. I picked up 97.9 WGRD as they had a Metallica song on. Also picked up Z 93.3 out of Saginaw a rock station, 96.1 WHNN from Bay City, Mix 106.3 from Saginaw, 93.7 country station from Grand Rapids and then some Milwaukee stations started booming in. It was really cool, I think they call it a tropo inversion but that seems to happen every summer in Escanaba.
