Good news gentle readers, well at least those of you who do not reside on the Eastern Seaboard. I just checked in with NOAA and it looks like Michigan will be spared any tropical storm force winds. Our neighbors to the east in Chatham-Kent, ON may not be so lucky: they have a 5% chance of tropical storm force winds in the next 120 hours. Our thoughts and prayers are with them.
Here's a trivia question for you gentle readers: when was the last time Michigan was hit by a tropical storm or hurricane? Also, in honor of Hurricane Sandy, here's Polaris (AKA the Pete and Pete house band) playing their hit song "Hey Sandy" (AKA the Pete and Pete theme song). Enjoy:
