We hit a deerJuly 14th, 2014 at 12:20 am by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Weather
We hit a deer at the Hudsonville exit on the way back from Chicago around sunset Sunday evening. Unfortunately, the deer is now among the deerly departed and there is some damage to the front of our car. My wife was driving and she is very fond of deer and a bit shaken, but we are OK. This is a first for us, though I’ve had some near misses. My middle daughter has had at least 2 car/deer accidents. My wife also hit a hawk (in our other car) and another bird earlier this summer.
The overnight NAM (car.) gives G.R. .04″ of rain today, then a high of 65 on Tues. and a high/low of 67/47 on Weds. The NAM MOS gives G.R. a high of 80 today and 65 tomorrow, the GFS MOS has 79 and 68. The GFS has the chance of a (mostly PM) shower/t-shower at 54% today and the NAM has 42%. We are not in any severe weather outlooks for this week and there is still no sign of our first 90-degree day. It looks sunny and pleasant for the 2nd half of the week (slight chc. shower inland on Weds.).
