Jenison/Hudsonville is getting whipped by this storm, just one dark red "blob" on the radar followed by more red "blob".

My kids are so afraid they cleaned out the shoe closet (the only place with no windows) and brought their little sleeping bags and pillows in there. They are playing their handheld video games until it passes while I check for weather updates every few minutes.

Thats funny about the kids.
I cleaned out a dark corner for our dog, who is a big baby about storms.I hope all is well in your area now,i am in N.E. G.R.and its calming down,finally. They (ch.13)say we have some more coming in the next 2 hours.
So at least your kids will be out of your hair for awhile longer,and you will have some peace and quiet,lol

This has been a great night of storms. I love it! I have watched quite a bit of this system come through GR from the vantage point of the roof of the building I am working in. What a display... Better than any fireworks celebration I've ever seen!

it continued on and on and on-the kids, dog, and I couldn't sleep, but the husband supposedly slept like a baby. It's not fair!!! haha

Thank goodness everyone for the most part is safe this morning, and we all still have a roof over our heads.

Put some pontoons underneath and throw a 5hp outboard on the back and you've got yourself a house boat.

This bites! I LOVE Storms and North of Grand Rapids didn't get it, Cedar Springs had the lightening show from GR and was able to see what was going on all the way from there. We could hear the thunder. My kids were afraid as well, but we didn't get what you all got. They were anticipating the cracking and booming with each lightening flash, but just rumbles from the south.
Looking at Radar, we are going to get another round earlier then in the evening.

I hope everyone who was affected by this system and got flooded, and power out, are ok. Yes, WZZM can stay on and talk, and talk, and talk about the same things, kids missing Nemo, but the weather can change in an instant, and they did a great job keeping everyone informed. It was actually funny watching them all excited. I bet when they got home they got busy with their spouses.

And it's typical Michigan, bright and sunny this morning with a light breeze. It will probably be another hot, muggy day. Heavy traffic on the bikepath this morning with people getting their exercise before it gets too hot.
