Today began with a heavy frost and clear skies. Since then, the winds have picked up, clouds have moved in with a little rain. The picture shows a waterspout near the Mackinaw Bridge from earlier today. Temperatures are unseasonably cold and it feels like a day in November. Some areas of the UP have snow cover, up to an inch plus. Most of us are not quite ready for that yet, but I don’t think that Mother Nature cares much. It is what it is.
