    Not much rain here. According to the radar we got a lot. I could hardly believe they showed dark green and some yellow in the radar so that should mean rain for sure. We got a short sprinkle was all, so far.

    If the sky turns greenish, all hell is about to break loose.

    Thankfully those storms all went south of us but I feel for those who got hit. A friend who lives east of Flint said one went through about 7 or 8 miles from him but did not know about damage.
