The storm swept in with not much wind, but made up for it with lightning, thunder and heavy rain. It also took power down for two or three hours in some areas around the lake. Below Consumers Energy crews were working on a pole on Hyde Road near Doyles this evening.
An extreme crack of thunder shook an area south of Jackson about 5:15 pm. It was loud enough to mimic what you would expect to hear from a large explosion.
Earlier, at the east end of the lake, a boat lift got loose, apparently propelled by what wind there was.
