Ron Rademacher discusses what's going on around Michigan.

COLOR UPDATE – Effect of unseasonably COOL weather and lack of late season

moisture.

A group of Northern Michigan residents and outdoorsmen gathered at the Nahma Inn to

talk about color and the weather. They concluded that while color is okay, it hasn't burst

out due to lack of moisture and no frost event since August. The very best color so far

seems to be north and east of Grayling.
