Re: Rare white deer

The photo was snapped at Kensington Metropark, just west of Milford, near the Oakland/Livingston line.

I have no idea what the hell "M-155" is, but I know for a fact no signed state highways run through Kensington. I-96 does traverse the south end of the park, though.

Re: Socialism fails in Ann Arbor

A new article published today on MLive said undisclosed "family issues" are responsible for the closing of the four stores. One of the owners is quoted as saying personal family issues outside of the business became too overwhelming to allow for adequate devotion of time to run the stores properly.

Re: WOOD TV Hires New Meteorologist

He was likely shown the door due to budget cuts. We've already discussed that here.

I like Kyle, and I think it sucks ass his contract was not renewed.

17 follows the same course as 8 when it comes to hiring young people for weekend weather duty.

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation

If they do indeed file an app for a new permanent TX site, my gut feeling is that it'll be located in Cannon Township.

Re: My 2 Cents on WLLZ

This stupid radio station plays "My Own Worst Enemy" by Lit and "Santa Monica" by Everclear several times a week but never touches White Zombie, Tool or even Megadeth.

iFart's rock programmers are a joke!!!

Re: Clueless meteorologists in West Michigan

I would like my crow bbq'd please.

(Everything tastes better that way!)

I tip my cap to the professional weather geeks. Other than for a few hours of mid and high level clouds this morning, they nailed it! I - on the other hand - was way off the mark.

Re: Clueless meteorologists in West Michigan

Latest vis sat shows rapid clearing in southern lower in last 30 minutes. Thrilled that the skies have cleared and temps have warmed. Day is still young. We will see who is proven correct once the day is through. My guess is the high temp will be warmer than I thought but not quite as warm as the TV...

I may have to eat my words!!! (That won't make for a good Easter dinner...LOL.)

South end of Metro GR has seen decent clearing within the last hour.

Clueless meteorologists in West Michigan

They're all going to get today's forecast wrong by a mile. The mid level drying illustrated on the models isn't going to materialize. There is little to no surface ridging. There is a disturbance approaching from the northwest. It will be mostly cloudy at best most of the day in the G.R. area. Might...

Re: 2018-2019 Pistons

Half of his 12 points came during garbage time.

The deficiencies of the back court were also on full display for everyone to see. Man, it's awful.

Thirteen straight playoff losses for the Pistons. Ties the all time NBA record!

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

Salem would wipe out WJR's news department, would eliminate all non-political programming (except for Paul W. maybe), and would load up weekends with reruns and paid programming.

TERRIBLE idea!!!!

Andre Drummond is a pile of useless horseshit. Cannot defend mano-a-mano worth a shit. Looks and plays scared on the offensive end of the floor. Has zero aggressive post moves against Lopez and the Greek Freak.

Re: WLAV Tower Relocation

Nope. They definitely are on the 107.3 site still. Crystal clear signal in Ionia County. Listenable signal as far away as west Lansing. Yet another fuck up by Cumulus engineering. Is anyone surprised? I'm sure not!! I don't think the FCC monitors STAs very closely, so I doubt there will be repercuss...

Re: March Nielsen numbers are out for Detroit radio

PPM encoded streams show as a separate line item in Nielsen ratings reports.
