News from the Week

Stories we looked at this week include the new M-22 Fall Color cooperative marketing site and a bunch of events. Big news today though about the relighting of the South Manitou Island Lighthouse on Saturday!

The Week’s Weather

Fall Color is coming on strong!Fall color stalled this week at 40-50% color.  Some stretches had more advanced color – yellows, oranges, reds – but most remained mostly green. In true Northern Michigan style, the weather went from 80s to 40s over the course of the week. I wonder if there’s any room in the bailout package for a few extra days of that 70+ degree weather??
