Sunday Evening – back in G.R. after a trek to Chicago to see daughter #3 and hear the cello extraordinaire, Merrick Jones perform the Elgar concerto. I haven’t looked at weather since Friday night – but I see the temperature is up to 54 in Kalamazoo and 55 in Marshall. G.R. has 48 and Big Rapids is fogged in and 39 at 9 PM. Heavy snow is falling across central Wisconsin. Gusts to 77 mph with t-storms in SE Texas. I did get to the Saturday AM Van Buren-Kalamazoo Skywarn Meeting in Mattawan. I had 6 door prizes to give away, inc. a couple copies of Ernie Ostuno’s book on the ’56 tornado. Got to see Irish and Brad from Lawrence from the blog family. It was neat to see the fog forming over the snow cover from Chicago back to G.R. Lots of geese flying around N. Indiana right now and I heard a mourning dove.
