WTF is this? Now all of SE Michigan is under a tornado watch until 2AM after record setting temps virtually all over in the 60s.

It has happened before. I remember it being in the 70s on New Year's Eve 1n 1964, and again, Christmas Eve, 1982. And other times in other winters, too.

I got off of work this evening, it was dark out, and there were people out in shorts and t-shirts around Campus Martius. People out on runs in light clothing too. I was on my bike and overheating in my winter coat! No skating rink tonight...which made me wonder that I thought the rink could function up into the 70s (degrees). ?

This is insane. I'm just chillin watching the LSU game hoping they stomp OSU, and the little tornado watch graphic pops up. I thought it was a glitch but then looked at the radar and saw all the mess coming our way.

I saw a handful of motorcyclists sporting short sleeved shirts going up Woodward today too. Somebody told me the golf courses were thriving as of today too.
