Summer in Michigan = Finding Weird Things in the Lake
You never know what you'll find in a Michigan lake, during summer.
Between Flint and Brighton, just off US 23, is Lobdell Lake. Earlier this week, two young girls were playing in the lake, when they found something stuck in the sand. Turns out it was a practice bomb from (according to MLive.com) World War I. (I may be wrong - but aerial bombing wasn't too common in World War I, so maybe it's from the World War 2 era. And, yes - I watch WAY too much History Channel)
The Michigan State Police's bomb squad confirmed it was safe and were about to take it with them, when the families involved asked if they could keep it. So, now the girls have one of the coolest summer souvenirs - ever. Here's the story.
The other incident making news this week is the discovery of a saw blade sticking out of the sand on Duck Lake in Interlochen State Park. It's a relic from the Wylie lumber mill that operated there more than a century ago. I don't know if that saw blade is still sticking up out of the sand there or not, so - watch your step.
