Cheeseburger Festivities to Open with Gale Force Winds
Caseville, Michigan – Workers are frantically working on setting up for the opening of 2012 Cheeseburger in Caseville festival are undaunted by intermittent wind and rain that has been hitting the Upper Thumb today. During our run into Caseville this afternoon we saw that main street is now lined with hundreds of vendors and sidewalk cheeseburger cafes.
The National Weather Service issued a Gale Warning effective at 10pm this evening through Friday. Sustained winds of 29 knots with gusts to 35 accompanied by 10 foot waves coming in to Saginaw Bay from Lake Huron. The warning is set to expire about the time that Jimmy Buffett tribute band Johnny Russler and the Beach Bums takes the stage at 7:30pm Friday night.
