    That community is already in the process of dissolution where each man begins to eye his neighbor as a possible enemy, where non-conformity with the accepted creed, political as well as religious, is a mark of disaffection; where denunciation, without specification or backing, takes the place of evidence; where orthodoxy chokes freedom of dissent; where faith in the eventual supremacy of reason has become so timid that we dare not enter our convictions in the open lists, to win or lose.

      Minnesota has over 10,000 lakes ten acres or larger. I don't know what Wisconsin has but I know they have more. It's not like Minnesota said, "HEY WE HAVE MORE LAKES THAN THAT SHABBY STATE WISCONSIN"

          Aren't duck sloughs better than lakes? The pothole region is heaven, after all.

            I didn't know that, actually. Just trying to stay loose for next season by throwing a little shyt your way.

              Yeah a quick google search showed me that most sites think it's Minnesota by a long shot. We have the standards- Wisconsin counts puddles.

                            Huge trees down in sw MPLS and Edina- seen a few where the sidewalk was ripped up along with the roots. Also seeing friends with bad tree and home damage in Blaine and maple grove

                              The norther metro area got smashed pretty good. The hail piled up ankle deep in some photos I've seen, plows and skid loaders were called out to clear the streets. The local NBC news showed a tree going into a family's home with a small fire at the top of the house or tree - it's tough to see. The home owner said that a similar tree was down in his neighbor's yard.

                                My hometown of Coon Rapids was one that had to get out plows to clear the hail. Leaves and twigs acted like filters on the storm drains, letting water eventually flow through but not the hail. Hail drifts two feet high in some lawns.
