First of all thanks for all the opinions on the state of congress yesterday – as always your opinion matters, this is a free country and we are all allowed to think and form our own opinions as long as they are educated notions on what is going on. Generally I stay away from politics on here as it can be an inflammatory subject so I will leave it by the wayside and let it rest.
MDot has a new interactive map on the state of the roads as you travel from place to place – it contains current travel speeds, locations of incidents, highway webcams along with snow plow cameras. https://mdotjboss.state.mi.us/MiDrive/map# – I will eventually try to figure a way to insert it here on the web site.
Below are the current snow fall amounts from NOAA as of yesterday – all of Michigan saw at least some snow, but the lake effect belts were hit particularly hard as frigid air passed over the warm lakes.:
We will remain cloudy today with a few peeks of the sun if we are lucky – this is the season when we generally see more clouds than sun in Michigan especially along the lakeshore counties. Temps will remain below normal – mainly in the mid 30s right on through the weekend. No big storms are predicted through the next several days so the snow pack will gradually melt away, with the exception of Bittersweet where they have been making snow. Bittersweet is about a mile away from my house – to get there you take M89 west out of Otsego to Jefferson Road and follow the signs.
