Looks like it's skirting north of the Twin Cities proper. They are saying 75 mile an hour straight line winds though. I want to go out and look, but it's coming down pretty hard.

Seriously (not that I haven't already been), here in California we had huge lightning strikes last night (dramatic, huge, great big massive lightning strikes out of a dark sky to the ground nearby, ongoing over many hours), then a rain storm.

This morning it was like the humidity and air temperature environment of Miami in July at dawn...thick air, hot and still, everything soaked and still damp. Very unusual for CA, even when it's rainy.

The storm activity is whirling around from the hurricanes in the Gulf out to the southern pacific to the west and then looping around to us in the northern west and then across the nation northernly...the storm "chain" going on right now is affecting everyone.

I'm just glad that the droughts in many parts of North America are now over. Really don't like the droughts.

epador and all...this is definitely one of those nights before the night before when it's best to joke about the intensity, since the worst of it will be here soon enough. Rita is another monster.
