The storms have begun rolling through mid-Michigan.  The National Weather Service has issued a Severe Thunderstorm Warning through 4:30 in Ingham, Eaton and Jackson Counties; 5:15 in Shiawassee County.

The rain has been pouring down here in Ingham County for the past while, along with the rolling thunder and lightning flashes.  I did check the basement - so far, so good - no water yet!  I can't help but think of all our fellow Michiganders in southeast Michigan and the hell they went through last week with the flooding there. has this to say about the rest of the afternoon and evening forecast.
