My wife Kim and I live on a 16 acre farm in Solon Township in Kent County.
We are trying to get a beef operation going, but make some money with our egg business.
I love to restore old wooden motor boats. (DO YOU HAVE ONE THAT'S BEEN IN A BARN FOR YEARS?)
I love to fly radio control airplanes and the ones with strings that we all had as kids! Anyone have some of those lying around?
My best buck is a rather small eight point, but it is hanging in my office.
My best fish was a King Salmon I fought for 45 minutes on the lake. But it got away.
I grew up in Chicago and remain a dedicated Cubs and Bears fan.
A storm system will move across the upper Midwest today.
Ahead of this system, there may be some sun to start the day along with some strong southerly winds. Look for a hi this afternoon in the lo to mid 40's.
Once the cold front passes Monday night strong northwest winds will bring very cold air back across West Michigan into Tuesday. The rain will change back to snow before the Tuesday morning drive, and a quick freeze will ice up most roads.
With the new snow on top of the ice, we'll probably have a few schools close.
Another storm system looks to affect the region later in the week, and this could produce a period of accumulating snow across the area. Light precip Thursday evening and night could transition to freezing drizzle.
