Minnesota Weather - Sheesh! - luvnit - 06-18-2010

Well first off, thank you Sharon for calling to see how we were last evening. Sorry, I think our phone went out during the last bit of our conversation.

Mostly the storm went right over us. We had some high winds and rain. No hail. But other parts were reporting 4 1/2 inch hail.

As the storms left our sky and faded into the horizon I snapped these pics of the 'wall' that had left us.

If I woulda had a panoramic camera, you would be able to see that this wall of storms spanned completely across the entire horizon.

Haven't heard any news - sounds like bad weather in your area. Glad all is o.k.

Before those clouds got to you they were here! Those storms really were awful, we were so luck to escape all but some heavy rain, wind, and the thunder and lightning. I just feel so bad for all those who lost so much.

I'm glad you and your family are all okay - did you get a bedfull of kids last night????

Now that I think about it, you all must have gotten the storm that went through the straits early in the week. Man, you should have seenthe ships come into port to wait it out. Horrendous swells.

I guess I need to turn up the news and see what you guys are talking about.

I'm glad everybody is okay, though.

We've got white caps on the little lake that would deter a lot of good sized boats from going out on the water!!! Sheesh.

We usually get at least a couple of big, nasty storms in June but so far, so good. Fingers are crossed... I'm glad that neither of you had any storm damage to deal with!

I just heard about the storms out that way. My gosh I am so glad everyone is ok!!!

Vicci it looks like the storms could be heading your way! Duck if they do.

I think the horrendous 30+ mph sustained winds with higher gusts was really tough to deal with, especially after the tornadoes.
