Super Bowl 47 – Ray-vans win.

February 3rd, 2013 at 5:15 pm by under Bill's Blog, Weather

     I watched the game at a friend’s house and I’ll be back on the blog later tonight.  I’d have preferred that the Lions or Chicago (my home town) or the Packers (I lived in Wisconsin for nearly five years and because of Greg Jennings) were in the game.  For me it tipped to SF because I’d like to see Joe Staley get a ring (good family in Rockford).  I remember doing weather from the field before he and the Rockford Rams took the field a time or two when he played.  I’d be happy for Ralph Munger, a decent guy who’s run a very successful program at Rockford.  I didn’t see all the commercials.  I did like the Oprah salute to the troops and the salute to farmers from the late Paul Harvey.  We laughed at the Tide commercial (which really worked in a group setting like I was in with half the people for Baltimore cheering at the end of the spot), and who can’t like the Clydesdales.  I got to ride with the Clydesdales in the seat next to the driver and that was pretty special.   I kind of agree with the Yahoo Sports guy on the commercials.   Last year it was easy to pick the best “spot”.  It was the promotion or Storm Team 8 (NBC had the Super Bowl last year).

Updated snowfall totals as of 5 PM Monday morning:  Grand Rapids 1.5″ Monday, 35.3″ for the season, 17.1″ below average, 6″ on the ground.  Muskegon 1.2″ today, 52.1″ for the season, 14.3″ below average, 39.4″ at this point last year in MKG, 7″ on the ground.  Lansing 0.6″ today, 13.2″ for the season, 19″ below average, 2″ on the ground.  Kalamazoo as of 9:30 AM (from Dr. Bob Ruhf at WMU) 31.9″ for the season, 6″ on the ground.  Snow depth:  18.3″ just east of Grand Junction, 13″ Allendale, 11″ Hudsonville, 8″ Holland, 7″ Comstock Park and East G.R., 6″ Hart, 3″ Ionia.

    I just became a 49ers fan. It seems Jim Harbaugh, as a football player at the U of M, would visit my neighbor’s teenaged son who was at the U of M Hospital for last-ditch cancer treatment for leukemia. Jim would visit 2 or 3 times a week; bring other players along; and kept in touch after my neighbor’s son was brought back home to spend the last few weeks of his life here at Gun Lake. What a wonderfully compassionate person!!

    Well I am rooting for the Ravens because my friend is a big fan… But neither team really interests me. I would love to see the lions play in the Super Bowl sometime! But that would never happen!

    Just got back from a walk with the kids in Wayland, and there is easily 4-5 inches on the ground since this morning when we went to church. It just hasn’t let up here all day. We were in a snow measuring area, and I noted that the snow is up to my sons thighs, so that’s 18″, and that would be standing on several inches of snow pack. It’s beautiful.

  13. Stephen (North Muskegon says:

    How does Wednesday look bill? Gotta go to Dr Bohays office in GR to get my surgical splint removed and a cast put on. Would be around 9 am.

    1. Uncle sparkee says:

    Looks like another snowy week, and then a brief warm-up. Nothing like the last warm-up, only 1 day reaching barely 40 then back to a high of 30 for the following day. Winter may of been late this year, but is for sure making up for lost time.
