The most emailed to me story for quite sometime was news that the Grand Traverse Lighthouse is in the running for free new windows. Click over and vote! The rest was all events and me being too busy to post news!

Weather Resources

Bouy 45002 in Lake Michigan is located halfway between North Manitou Island and Washington Island in Lake Michigan. It provides wind and wave data. Also check out Michigan Sea Grant Coastwatch for water temps (the “early evening” images in their archive will give you a better idea of actual temps during peaks swimming hours).

Leland, Michigan Forecast from Ann Arbor based wunderground

Weather Underground is just about as old as the internet (the first net weather service) and is located in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Sometimes the above banner will show personal weather system data from Leland and sometimes it comes from a vineyard on Old Mission (it tells you which in the top left of the page it links to).
