If you don’t like the weather in Michigan… wait a half day!

Yesterday my sweet daughter had her 6th birthday.  Unfortunately, however, as the day wore on, both the weather and the kids changed for the worse.  By the time we got home from dinner and playing at the arcade and bumper cars, both kids had tummy aches.  That all culminated with my son vomiting at 6:30 this morning, and my daughter having diarrhea (what I not so affectionately call a “runny tummy”).  So both of them are home from school today.  It is not as bad as some illnesses they’ve had in the past, but still a bummer that they don’t feel well.  Was it a virus, the greasy food or the spinny bumper cars?  Maybe all of the above.

Remember the spring-like photos from yesterday?  By late afternoon, it changed to this:

See the little bit of a “lake” that is now frozen?

But meanwhile, back in Upper Michigan, it was much, much worse.  It looked like this:

It was reported that some places got 20 inches of snow, and it still hasn’t stopped!  It could always be worse, right?
