Couple weather-related gratitudes:

     Rain most of the day today, but that only made us feel the more startled when the tornado alarms went off downtown this afternoon. And not once, but twice. A tornado actually struck downtown Minneapolis (I work in St. Paul, the other of the 'Twin Cities') and though it did damage to the roof of the convention center where over 2,000 people were gathered, and damage to a few other places--thank God no reports of injuries!

     After all that hoopla with rain and storms, I was expecting to come home to a real mess. But thank God--only the closet was flooded!

Emotional Status:
annoyed bracing for more rain tonight

Thanks for passing along that article--I had no idea what was going on in the convention center at the time!

Glad to hear that there were no injuries reported! Stay safe, and as dry as you can. I assume that is the worst of it gone by?

Just been rainy today and probably a little more of it tomorrow, but hopefully the surprise tornadoes are all behind!
