I just got word from the Mackinac Island leadership council: The islanders have voted to join our alliance! #zombie #zombies #zompocalypse

I think this new leadership council will help the Mackinac Island survivors maintain their independence this time around. They've learned.
11:09 AM #
For example, they've specifically asked that we send more probationary refugees and "second-chancers" their way. #zombies #zompocalypse

It's an insightful request. They know that, as an island, they are at less risk to Reaper fifth-columnists gathering intel and slipping away

For their part, the Mackinac Islanders get something they desperately need: Enough population to fight off zombie and raider incursions.

They're also talking about slowly cleaning Bois Blanc of tens of thousands of zombies they think are on the heavily wooded island. #zombies

It may take years to reclaim Bois Blanc Island from the dead. Rotating new arrivals through the job will be a good training system, I think.

The Mackinac bridge between upper and lower Michigan will be used for the same purpose. We're returning control of it to Mackinac Island.
11:27 AM #
Some of the modified attack boats that were used by the pirates that had Mackinac Island under their thumb will be returned to the island.
11:30 AM #
The rest will be split between our allies on Washington Island and the survivors at the Point Beach nuclear power plant, at least for now...

I say "for now" because I don't know what will happen to that survivor enclave, Dent is trying to get new orders from Homeland Security.
11:36 AM #
The rest of my diplomatic convoy will work out the details here. I have another side trip to take care of before winter takes hold. #zombies

@centralwisco Normally my tweets go out through The Anomaly, the weakness between worlds that brought the zombie plague, back in Wausau.

@centralwisco When I travel, I have to bring a mini-anomaly with me (long story if you haven't read it) and use my phone under cell towers.

@centralwisco The towers don't work, of course, but the mini-anomaly lets my tweets through to their analog in your world.
