The National Weather Service has issued a Winter Weather Advisory for much of West Michigan. It includes these counties: Mason-Lake-Osceola-Clare-Oceana-Newaygo-Mecosta-Isabella-Muskegon-Montcalm-Gratiot-Ottawa-Kent-Ionia-and Clinton. This is for 3-7″ of new snow, along with snow covered and slippery roads, brisk winds and perhaps some drifting snow.

Sunshine this Friday morning – Yippee!

After having roughly 17 TOTAL minutes of sunshine in the last 11 days, most of us FINALLY got to see a little bit of sun Friday morning.

Here’s some snowfall totals from Thursday. Snowfall Thursday totaled 11.2″ five miles west of Allegan, 9″ at Fennville, 7″ S. Haven, 4 1/2″ at Hastings, 3″ Grand Haven and Holland, and 2-3: in Grandville.

NOTE: I had the pleasure of hosting the local Math Counts competition at GVSU downtown Friday. There are sure some smart kids ouit there!

I’m taking to the air for a weekend trip. Come back here to the blog Saturday late evening to see where I’ve landed.
