A Dark And Stormy Night In Cheboygan, MI

So you might be wondering how our Wep Ronpet weekend turned out. Well, my wife and I left our home on Thursday afternoon. When we got in the car, we randomly decided to go north. We ended up driving all the way up to Mackinac City, where we got to see the beautiful Mackinac Bridge at night.
Well then my wife decided that she needed some Tums, but we couldn’t find a store in the area that was open. So we had to drive back south for about an hour to Cheboygan. We figured this would work out just as well, since all the hotels seemed to be booked in Mackinac. Well, we figured wrong. While driving to Cheboygan, we got caught in a sudden thunderstorm. The rain fell so hard that the road looked like it was boiling, and there was this crazy mist all over the place. It made it seem like we were in a real-life horror movie!
(The worse part was when tiny little frogs started leaping out on to the road. My wife asked, “Are we running over tiny little frogs?” and I lied and told her no, because I wanted her to be able to sleep that night. That turned out to take much longer to arrange than expected, however, since all the hotels in Cheboygan were also booked for some reason. We had to drive another hour south to Gaylord before we finally found one hotel with one vacancy at 1:30 in the morning. We’re not complaining, though; it was actually kind of fun.)
The following is a video in which I managed to catch some of what we saw.
