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!
