The time has come for me to be honest about my story and its effect on my life
We just got in from our one mile RunKeeper walk before Winter Storm "Al" hits

Getting ready for a big Michigan snowstorm today


Hawk Island on Tuesday morning.
There was no snow yesterday when we walked at Hawk Island. That's changing in the next couple of hours, forecasters say.

 Is today's snow warning here in Lansing, just another weather false alarm?  Forecasters say this is going to bring up to a foot of snow.  We've checked our pantry, our fridge, our car's in the garage, have wood for the fireplace and have a few DVD's picked out.  My snowblower is accessible and I have plenty of gas.  We are ready.


Looking out our kitchen window.
Looking out our kitchen window this morning. No snow yet.
