RE: rain?

Talk about rain, now we won't need to drag hoses around for a few days.

We had hail, but not very much and I don't see any damage looking out my windows. We had very small hail thank goodness.

I'm in Ramsey. By this time the first round had already come through and was actually much scarier for us than round two. The second wave was just a lot of thunder, lightning and rain (about 1" when all's said and done). At 9pm they were talking rotation just to our west....and my DH is out of town. Why does it always happen that way?

No hail here but I suspect Andover got hit yet again. And my dad in Blaine had hail piling up all over the place.


RE: rain?

No hail in South Minneapolis but 2.11 inches according to my electronic rain gauge (a great gizmo, by the way) and a lot of water in my basement.

Hope everyone's homes, trees and gardens were okay.
