On Wednesday, we seemed to be in “the sweet spot.” As the line of thunderstorms and severe weather approached, the line broke in two as it reached us, with the worst storms going north and south of our location. We had some squally winds at one point and some very hard rain, but most of the day was just cloudy, warm and incredibly humid.
We stayed aboard the entire day but never saw the forecast gale-force winds. That’s okay. It was nice, for once, to have the winds lighter than forecast! However, areas to our north and east did not escape the severe weather. It was a day with many tornados over a large area and 10″ of snow back home in Grand Rapids!
