I am content with my friends

They showed up at the beginning of June and have been cavorting ever since.

This evening there were about two dozen of them flashing their lights in the front yard and another dozen in the back.

We have had hot and dry here and had a "Red Flag" warning last Thursday outlawing open burning. No sign of grass fires, so most everyone (except the people with fireworks) are being sensible.

Frazz from 31 May 2011

Note the reference to two department stores that no longer exist: J.L.Hudsons and Jacobsons.

Hudson's was originally out of Detroit, got bought by Daytons, who got bought by Marshall Fields, who got bought by Macy's.

Jacobson's had a big stores in East Lansing, East Grand Rapids, and other parts of the Mid West. After bankruptcy, someone bought the name and recreated a store in Winter Park FL.

Ganto's was another Michigan based woman's clothing store that has since gone out of business.

Last night's hail

We had the following hail last night during the thunderstorm.

Monday we got 2 inches of snow, which melted by when I got out from work. The NWS announcement is here.

This doesn't look like April.
