Minnesota weather.. if you dont like it..
« on: June 20, 2012, 06:57:34 PM »
Well after a long time of near drought or full out drought in areas of our state we are now getting that rain we asked for..

Only one problem, it is coming to fast, and it just is not stopping!!

These are photos from the north eastern part of our state.

The tail of that system is kickin it here right now. Torrential rain, lots of sky sparks and wind but we are high enough flooding is no concern much right on the farm. Buddy is cowering under the table. He hates storms or loud noise of any kind.

In fact I pointed my panels flat to the sky so they get flushed off.

Great corn growing weather. Rain, humidity and high temperatures and we have had all three this week..

Yeah, thats what they said in Duluth too Tom.
(Most of those pics are from Duluth. )
The zoo there has massive destruction, and many animals are now out roaming.
I heard both seals got out, the polar bear, and more but I don't have the details.

Duluth? Jeez - my missus doubted your little Fishhook River in MN would be doing all that.

I grab 24-hour loops, often stitch together week long loops.

Road conditions yesterday from our dashcam. This is basically the best couple minutes I could pull out that was not mostly snowy white out to the camera
Music might be a bit much, but had to take out the conversation, so I dropped in a youtube supplied audio track

Where is the fun in avoiding the drifts?

It is every drivers duty to bust as many of them as possible yaknow!

Row row row your snow.


Fishing opener is on  May 11th here, and it looks like we will have to go out on hovercrafts, bring a chainsaw and cut holes to fish.
The ice will still be a foot thick ( or more) at this rate.

We had that sudden warm up, shocking in fact, made it to 68 F here, but there is always a down side.



Flood map, we are in a watch.
A lot of hubbard is starting to flood, but thankfully thanks partially to a lot of tractor work moving a lot of the snow away from vital areas, and a little luck our property is not flooding at all this year, yet.

We had a similar weather change here.
Attached a snip of yesterdays weather.  I spent the day moving a bit of water with
pumps. Have to say you couldn't have wiped the smile off my face with a 2x4.

Btw, do not believe the rain number.  It's due to a malfunction.
