    Fall Color Report (Oct 2): We’re stalled at 40-50% color. There are some stretches with more advanced color – yellows, oranges, reds – and others that are still mostly green. All in all, it looks like we’ll see peak color beginning Columbus Day Weekend and probably continuing through the following weekend.

    From Absolute Michigan is an appropriate article for this windy season titled Winds of Change?
    A new report titled Michigan’s Offshore Wind Potential from the Land Policy Institute at Michigan State University says that Michigan has the potential to become a big player in offshore wind energy. At the same time, the Federal Government has also issued a report that investment in coal is now more expensive than wind.
