The Alpine Township Blizzard of 2011

The Alpine Township Blizzard of 2011

Alpine Township experienced the Blizzard of 2011 along with its neighbors.  There was lots of snow and cold temperatures, and the Township office would probably have been closed except for a few brave employees with four wheel drive, and a Township Treasurer who drives in by bicycle.  Treasurer Jim Townsend has been biking it to work every day for the past year and he did not want to see his string of continuous days terminated because of a little snow.  Fortunately he lives relatively close to the office and witnesses report that he pushed, not rode his bike in this morning.  Jim is an enthusiastic biker who got over a hundred miles in even this past month.

Fall storms bring several school closings

Comstock Park, MI - Violent winds and rain are expected to reach the West Michigan area shortly but many schools, including Pine Island Elementary and Kenowa Hills Public, have already closed in anticipation of the foul weather.

Conditions similar to storms that struck the area in the fall of 1998 are expected to last through Wednesday evening with the heaviest winds occurring Wednesday afternoon.

Autumn Colors

In addition to the beautiful weather, it is time to enjoy the beautiful fall scenery and you don't have to go far from home.  For instance, you can stop by the Alpine Township Sonic Drive In, find a good parking spot, and almost see the fall colors change in front of your eyes.  Or drive a mile down the road to the Brechting Farm on Six Mile, just West of Alpine, and add some orange pumpkins into the sea of color.  All this just minutes from Downtown Grand Rapids.  READ MORE
