BLOOMFIELD HILLS, Mich. -

As inconvenient as the road closure was along Halsted Road between 13 Mile and 14 Mile roads in Bloomfield Hills, it positively paled in comparison to what happened to a Washtenaw County man.

The man was struck by lightning near Cassidy Lake and Waterloo roads in Chelsea. He's going to be OK.

It has been a long, gray and dreary week in Metro Detroit. Moreover, it has been cold.

It was round two of rain Thursday night. Dante Cochran was thinking positively, at least. He was wearing a parka, and a pair of shorts. Wishful thinking or bad planning?

"I was looking forward to warm weather today. I'm a native to Michigan but I'm still not used to the weather," he joked.
