The National Weather Service is predicting a strong storm late Sunday night and into Monday. They are predicting a storm very similar to the one around Thanksgiving that knocked everyone's power out and flooded everything. Up to 60 MPH winds are possible and up to 3 inches of rain is possible. We are in Michigan, so no wind and no rain is also possible. But please prepare for a strong storm during the day tomorrow. Please secure anything the wind might affect, and make sure alternative power sources are ready to go. Hoarding toilet paper will not be necessary.

Hi! My name is Maura Glynn, and I am a student research assistant at Michigan State University. For my research, I am part of a lab studying social media in Michigan residents aged 50+ who have at least one social media account. We have put out a survey to study these relationships, and it would be great if you could distribute it to your group members, as well as anyone you know aged 50+ in Michigan. We are trying to get as many people to take it as possible, especially Parkinson's patients, if you can distribute it to support groups as well. Thank you so much! Also, as an incentive, when anyone completes our survey they will be entered to win one of five $20 Amazon gift cards from the MSU College of Communication Arts and Sciences! The link is as follows: http://bit.ly/SocialMediaMSU If you have any questions or concerns, please let me know. My email is [email protected], or feel free to Facebook message me. Thank you, Maura Glynn
