It's always fun to watch mother nature from a safe distance, But when it gets uncomfortably to close it really starts to make a person think why all this destruction. Why do these twisters also seen to find the small towns and hit them dead on? With miles of open land & countryside they seem so often to find those small towns and use their main-street as the path, Like again last night in both South Dakota & Minnesota. As well in the recent past of St, Peter MN an F5, Siren WI or just last year Ladysmith WI. Anyone here from Minnesota find water in their basements? Thank god we have lots of sand here in Anoka county, Even with the 5"+ of rain again last night we're still high & dry., I'm glad we have not received that 15"-20+" that just west/northwest of the twin cities has received in the past few days. Get ready for the onslaught of mosquitoes & westnile!
