Soggy Tigers

I haven't started posting about our trip back to Michigan (we were enjoying our families and then I was in Omaha, NE for training and am just starting to get things back under control). Let's start from the beginning.

We flew out on Thursday afternoon. Our flight was at 1:10pm. We had a straight through flight (which I believe was my first one - AWESOME). We landed in Detroit around 8:00pm. Everyone started turning on their phones and we started hearing about the BLACK OUT. San Diego (from Arizona to the coast, from Orange County down to Mexico) was having a big black out. We were told that the power went out around 3pm and no flights were leaving San Diego (because they couldn't do security and everything like that). Looks like we just got out in time.

Friday morning we had to take Quincy (one of my parents' dogs that was attacked by another dog) up to the vet/ doggy-dentist in Ann Arbor because part of the appliance that they put in his mouth was breaking. After that we met up with my dad in Monroe for some lunch, went to Scoops for some ice cream and then were on our way to the Tigers game. The weather was pretty pootsy, so thankfully we had stopped at Meijer earlier in the day and picked up some ponchos.

The game was delayed for about 45 minutes, but then started right up. It was rainy/ drizzly on and off for the game (not to mention the torrential downpour on the drive up there), but we still enjoyed ourselves. The Tigers were down 0 to 4 in the first inning (we thought it was going to be a LONG game in the rain if it continued like that), but they came back and won it 8 to 4. I think there were 3 or 4 homers. We even ended the night with fireworks.

Some pictures from the game (PS It was Ryan's first Tigers game):
