This is the kind of item that gets a professional surveyor excited.
The DNR's Matt Dontz found this original cedar survey post in a stream near Atlanta, in Montmorency County recently. The General Land Office of the U.S. government did the survey of Michigan's townships in 1850. The post was set to mark a section, or quarter corner and were driven into the ground each half-mile. It was preserved by the water, Forestry and Surveying experts agree the find is extremely rare, even with today's GPS technology.

Tornadoes touched down in three states on Sunday, ripping roofs off homes and turning trees to matchsticks, as severe weather swept over the region. A large "violent and extremely dangerous" tornado was spotted on the southwest side of Wichita, Kansas, the National Weather Service said.
Warmer spring weather is finally here, and with it comes the reality of tornados, thunderstorms and severe weather. Of course when it comes to covering severe weather here in West Michigan, nobody’ s better informed than Storm Team 8.

The more you watch it, the funnier it gets. Thank you DIRTYCURT.
Not every recipe in the book is made with beer, but as Uncrate.com reminds us...they all taste great when paired with beer. ($13) offers up instructions on how to cook everything from appetizers to desserts, including some stuff you'd expect — like pub-friendly foods and barbecue — to some you wouldn't — like cupcakes and ice cream floats. But hey, it's all beer-friendly, so it's all good...especially if you're lucky enough to live in BeerCity USA.
