Lots of stuff going on in Otsego yesterday – we had the Creative Arts Festival and the Otsego Band Invitational. You had to be creative to get from the east to west through the city as the downtown area was blocked off from traffic. My step daughter had a booth set up, she is a artist and crafter. Classic cars and antique tractors lined the roads which in itself was worth going to see.
After stopping downtown we had to get ready for a wedding being held next door. A little backstory: my neighbor Scott and I built our homes pretty much the same time at the end of a two track on the west end of Otsego. He is a local contractor and builder of residential homes. We watched each others kid(s) grow up down here. His daughter (and only child) Carly was great in soccer all through middle, high school and college. Anyway, she was married yesterday next door where she grew up. If you look at our south side web cam you can see the large barn that Scott built this summer where the reception was held. At the end of the wedding he shot off some large fireworks. What a great wedding!
Weather wise we are setting up for a roller coaster ride this week. We have an area of rain moving in for this morning which will bring in cloudy and wet conditions though the day. We could see a quarter to half an inch of rain today. Tomorrow the clouds will clear out and give us perhaps our last gasp of summer-like humid conditions with highs into the 80s through Tuesday before our next system moves in bringing in more heavy rains and cooler conditions the rest of the week. Highs will be in the upper 50s to low 60s with low temps in the low to mid 40s. I am thinking it will be time to shut down the air conditioners and check the furnace.
