It was the end of summer vacation in 1977. Back then we went back to school before Labor Day, so there was about 2 weeks left of summer fun. It was about 4 o clock in the afternoon. My mom was laying down taking a nap, or as she put, "resting". Then there was a special report on TV.
As it's the 20th Whitecaps home opener tonight, let's go back 5 more years, to 1989. The elder Bush was President, we didn't have to eat broccoli, and the World Series was interrupted by the San Francisco earthquake. And a little baseball movie was released on April 7.
The polls in the East have closed, and ABC News can now predict the winner in Maine...It's Lobster for the State Crustation! Ha! But seriously, election day has ended. Here is the latest from Channel 13!
Remember PM Magazine? Remember Roaring 20's Pizza? Remember mustaches in the early 1980's? We'll get ready to jump into a West Michigan Time Machine as we feature a clip of PM Magazine from WZZM 13 from 1982 - and even take a peek at the great retro commercials, Featuring radio legend Andy Rent!
Flooding in Michigan Rivers, including the Grand River through Grand Rapids, is expected to get get worse in the next 72 hours. One to three inches of new rain is expected to send flood stages well above normal levels by the weekend. The area has already experienced above average rainfall totals, combined with average winter snowfall totals, swelling the Grand in many places.
Watch out! It's always the way it is. In the national media (Networks, The Weather Channel) when WE get a foot of snow, it's a "little storm over the Great Lakes". But when that storm hits the East Coast...STOP! The entire world has to hear EVERY little detail like the planet is close to blowing up. No, no media bias here!
I'm here to tell you, this was one of the hottest summers I can ever remember. Sure we complain about the Michigan weather often, since it's SO lovely and average. (Please note the dripping sarcasm) But really, like for real, this has been one of the hottest summers ever in West Michigan.
