Why oh why

29 posts in this topic

Why am I up at 2:00 AM? We just had round after round of some of the worst storms I have seen in a long time. Funnel cloud spotted by Wabana lake around 9:00pm, that's only 2 miles from me. I was out fishing and thought I heard thunder, but couldn't see the clouds. At least not until I got off the lake and was headed home. This is a shot of the clouds as the first storm was rolling in. Torrential downpours, pea size hail 3 different times, continuous lightning, and I was just able to finally get on the internet. Satellite stinks.

We had one storm roll through in the middle of the night. We rushed down to shut windows and after it was all said and done for, we got 3/10ths of an inch of rain.

The gold ruler...in August is fine unless Jim needs it and then I'll let you know. I doubt it though. Too bad we couldn't get much use out of it on Saturday. frown

Didn't get to use it on Monday either, the one walleye I did catch snapped my line right at the boat. Was probably about 16 inches.

Barb you can just give it to Lisa at the GTG in Aug. Too bad about the walleye cause that one was a perfect eater.

My family is coming up for the weekend this weekend so I hope the weather holds. I don't think we'll fish Winnie tho since I don't have avid fisherpeople on my side of the family. There are ALOT of mosquitoes up there!! mad

That one definately looks bad, and down here in the SW corner of the state (The Windtunnel) we get some bad ones.

What I want to know is what the heck is going on here! I moved up here because I heard they don't get a lot of severe weather in this area, did someone lie to me?

Give me a hurricane over a tornado any day. At least I have the option of leaving.

Hey I used to live right by that lake in Grand Rapids. Glad I wasn't there lastnight, looks like some scary stuff! I kinda miss the Grand Rapids area, but only for the fishing. Hoping to get up there in August and catch some bass and Northerns! And maybe have supper at Forest Lake. That would make for a nice weekend.

personnally i would take a good old blizzard before any kind of summer storm because of the risk of a whole lot less damage that summer storms create. sure you may have to shovel a bit but for the most part you dont need to repair/ fix things like summer storms can do.
