We had a round of storms move through quickly late yesterday afternoon that knocked out power to 600k households in the state and then we had another round that came through from round 2:00 a.m. until maybe 6:00ish this morning and we're now at about 700k without power.
Looking at the outage map in Metro Detroit, it looks like our neighborhood is one of the few without losses but everything to the east and south of us looks affected. I didn't notice much in the way of trees down on my run this morning but I could hear the hum of the generators and there was a lot of flooding out there.
I predict this will be the hottest September on record for Ohio. Not sure about Michigan, because of the UP, but it wouldn't surprise me if it's in the Top 5.It's still summer and will be for a while longer. The warm weather will likely continue into early part of September, but sometime around mid September we'll feel a disturbance in the Force and note that a seasonal change is beginning. Maybe it'll be a cool morning or an outlier maple tree with a few leaves starting to yellow, but you'll someone silently register the change is definitely coming.
