Being in downtown Grand Rapids, we don't see a ton of wildlife. For some reason, though, in the last few years, we've had some ducks that like to hang out outside of the station. I don't know if it's the same ducks year after year, but they're all cute and friendly and it's kind of nice to have them around.

Turns out one of our ducks now has some babies! (Or at least one baby.)

Power Restored On Grand Rapids’ East Side

This morning I woke up in the dark, which is normal, since we don't generally sleep with the lights on. But, it was really dark. No power. Turns out 5,000 other homes on Grand Rapids northeast side were in the same boat. And now we know why.

Consumers Energy is saying that this morning's outage was likely caused by a raccoon that crossed a switch. As of 7:30 a.m. power had been returned to all that were effected.
