We've had a nearly relentless series of thunderstorms rolling through this past week. The good news is that we haven't had enough rain yet to persuade the ducks to come paddling through our yard. That actually happens two or three times a year. So far, only the driveway is ponded. We've had quite a bit of lightning, too, but not enough wind to knock big branches out of the trees.
Not everyone in Michigan has been so lucky. And elsewhere in the Midwest, sharks may be swimming through yards at this point.
