Ridin' The Storm Out...

68° - rain - dark/cloudy at 10am

Late Friday afternoon (4-5pm) brought severe thunderstorms and funnel clouds to mid-Michigan - and a brief trip to the basement for me and my two boys.

Local TV went to continuous coverage. Lots of EAS activations with severe thunderstorm and tornado warnings. The sky dark. Wind. Rain.

Closest touchdown to our location was a mile or two away. After spending years in the Colorado mountains, this was my first tornado experience since the early 70s growing up in the Chicago suburbs.

It was a first for my two boys - the oldest who was celebrating his 12th birthday!

More from WILX-TV here. Lansing State Journal here.

Back to radio tomorrow.
