Here we are at the end of meteorological summer. I will let Slim our great statistician give you the standings and comparisons to how we stack up against previous summers but it isn’t hard to deny we had a warm one indeed. August ended our dry spell – we had 6.67 inches here in Otsego which is 2 and a half inches above normal.
The feature image is the NAM NEST guess for the Labor day weekend (beginning today) – Rain and thunderstorms will be an off and on feature beginning after midnight tonight through the labor day weekend with the main threats being heavy rains, lightning and wind. It would be a good idea to keep your weather radio handy if you are out camping. We will not see all day rains. A cold front will stall over Michigan over the weekend and into next week so this generally means storms will fire along the front during the afternoon and evening. We are not sure where it will stall, in fact it will probably meander north and south so it is anyone’s guess where the rain and storms will form. Keep you eye on the interactive radar if you are out and about.
Labor day weekend announces the beginning of my favorite season when the pigskins are launched across college football stadiums across this great land of ours. I am sure you know I am a Michigan fan, have been since the days of Bo Schembechler who coached the Wolverines from 1969 to 1989 with a record of 234 wins, 65 losses and 8 ties.
Michigan starts out with a tough game against Notre Dame tomorrow at 7:30pm. Michigan State begins their season tonight at 7pm against Utah state – Western Michigan plays against Syracuse tonight at 6pm (go Broncos) and Central Michigan plays Kentucky tomorrow at 3:30pm. Bill’s Badgers play at Western Kentucky tonight at 9pm.
The Lions start out against the Jets on Monday 9/10 – they have had a bad preseason winning only one out of four games.
