I told my readers to "come back for a dish of either gossip or food, I haven't decided which" at the end of A 'Grand Canyon' crosses the surface of Pluto's moon Charon. Sorry to disappoint them, but I'm serving neither this morning. Instead, take a rain check, literally, as I write about the weather, specifically Hurricane Joaquin as viewed from Michigan.
First, WOOD-TV takes a serious view of the storm in More rain, flooding forecast along soggy East Coast.
Unrelenting rain across the East Coast showed little sign of let-up early Saturday, with record-setting precipitation expected to prolong the soppy misery that has been eased only by news that Hurricane Joaquin is no longer a threat.Good news! The hurricane won't make landfall! It will still soak the east coast.
Of course, what's really important to a lot of people in Michigan is what effect the storm will have on today's Michigan-Maryland game. WXYZ reports on that in Game time changed for U of M vs. Maryland.
Game time changed for U of M vs. Maryland due to hurricane threat.Americans demand their entertainment. Therefore, the game, like the show, must go on.
