Storm warnings in Minnesota today--it's been a hot stormy summer so far--radar shows green, blue, red, orange and yellow patterns whipping along I-94 from Fargo toward St Cloud. It seems like most of our summer storms follow either that path, or they arrive from Nebraska/Iowa along the bottom of Minnesota, aiming at the twin cities.
THIS summer, we've had storm systems taking weekly turns at pounding us. Funny tho, how you can tell when theres a new weather person on duty at the radio station: they have trouble with Kanabec, Lac Qui Parle and Kandiyohi counties, and they include those "towns" that are only signs on the railroad or highway: Vawter and Gregory in Morrison, and Parent in Benton Co.
They're talking about weather that's trying to kill us, as Garrison says. Is it picky to want them to get the place names right? ☺
(BTW, Parent, Mn is between St Cloud and Foley on Highway 23. It was a town at one time, but now it's only a marker on the RR tracks).
