  • Grand River meets Lake Michigan

    Posted by Tim Barron

    From Allen Bryant of Delhi Township:
    This was taken on Monday April 22nd and shows the discharge of the Grand River into lake Michigan at Grand Haven.  The Grand River watershed encompasses the entire Lansing area.  That means that the portion of rainwater that runoffs off anyone’s property in this area eventually makes it to the Grand River, and subsequently to Lake Michigan.

  • Tim meets girl from Boston Marathon
