Electric Power in the Michigan

Does anyone know if there is any power in Mich. anywhere, or when it will be coming back on? Is the Woodward Ave Dream Cruise still on?

Hey Kitkar
Sorry I didn't see this thread untill I posted another on same subject. I managed to have a intermittent conversation with a friend in the Detroit area, the latest info he has is that the cruisers are still able to cruise Woodward but the power is not on in many areas. That means gas is hard to find and resturants arehard to find as well. The official Cruise activities are postponed until Saturday. Things are really messed up there. The cops are going to shut down the crusing at 8 pm tonight according to local radio stations there.

HEY KIT:

People in Michigan need to spend some of the money they are saving from buying electricity on new roads They have the worse roads in the USofA. They like to beat the wheels right off my street rod. On one trip my tires were rotated and I never even stopped my car....Maybe that is why the call it "Dream Cruise" Your car dreams it was home.....DAVE

Jim;

I talked to people in Troy. They said the weather has pretty much cleared up, and is supposed to be cooler and sunny Saturday. There is little to no wait at the tunnel or the bridge, but 5 min. to 1/2 hour coming back into Canada. I'm heading down at 4:30 in the morning. I filled both gas tanks on the truck and two jerry cans in the back. I'm taking two coolers of ice and water, too.

Our power has been on and off since midnight but we're stocked up on everything, so it's not too bad here.
