A few days ago, an article appeared at mlive.com stating, "The entire Great Lakes system has gained an incredible amount of water just in the first 12 days of April". This really surprised me because Lake Michigan has been slowly receding from it's recently highest in 2015. Since then, many areas in Harbor Country began seeing their beaches come back, where in some cases it had disappeared all together. Grand Beach comes to mind.
