Ah, Spring and You Know What Happens

We had sustained heavy winds.  Gusts topped 62 MPH here in the county.  Large portions of the state lost power.  Reinforcements arrived to help local crews restore electricity.

Locals theorize that it was an out-of-state crew that drove onto the shoulder to let another vehicle pass and that’s what caused the furrow beside our road.  I’m not sure, but it did leave a large scar.



In another sign of spring, the turkey buzzards are back since last week.  I enjoy watching them soar around the neighborhood.

While you might see them around here anytime of year, I was also glad to see a flock of 14 adult turkeys this morning.  I was in the car and had no camera.  Oh well, life frequently works out like that.

  1. Life frequently works out like that, and like this.

    And because of that and this, and all these unknowns, there lies our hope.

  2. It seems as though we are surrounded by ponds and ponds of water this spring….about twice as much as a year ago. Also, the early arrival of the Robins has impressed me!!!

  3. Good news about the turkey buzzards. We have lots of them around here. I need to start watching for them now too.

  4. It appears that you have had lots of moisture this spring. No Michigan crew would leave the big ruts with which you must deal. We all know that everything Michigan is wonderful. : )

    • We have had lots of rain over the winter, which was especially mild. Spring has brought a lot more rain. Michigan is a great place to live.

  5. Who would ever take a camera with them? One might have to take a picture to prove something as a fact. :stars:

    • I do have a camera in my cell phone, but I don’t have a data plan. That means there is no way for me to retrieve phone photos. It’s no big loss.

      • Do you need data if you have wi-fi? You do have wi-fi up there, don’t you? Or go old school with a cable.

        Those turkeys had Grace concerned the other day. She spent a long time keep her eye on them.

        • With my old-style phone I do need a data plan to retrieve those pix. Those turkeys are huge. I can understand why Grace was nervous.
