Highest windgust I've seen on the weather station here has been 32 mph. I didn't get to it in time to read the big one earlier.

Been up since 0500, Station 1 is out on a tree and live primary on a roof. Still no Edison crew on scene.

Hmmmm...
Let's see, it was 72 in my cave when I went to bed.
It's 72 in here now.
I expect it will be the same in my office cave.

Yup, it's still Michigan outside.

I am not sure what jelled means, but I am guessing it's not good. How did West Branch fair in the winter storm yesterday?

Jelled-- frozen fuel...

Not bad mostly ice snow mix fell here about 2 to 3 inches. sun is shinning the AM. Expect some drifting today. North of us got it worse. I see Roscommon County they are asking people to stay off the roads

Great! It should be a fun ride up north this evening. I might need to call Gman to rescue me.

theres nothing quite like 500 gallons of fuel that now looks like jello in the tank and flows at the same rate. I have a huge blender tool that we used to stick in the tank to mix up the additive. the folks who drive up from down south are the ones who bring the problem with them, their fuel isn't treated for the cold.
