    This also looks suboptimal:



    I'm sure FEMA and other federal relief sources will spring efficiently into action.

        Oh right, I think that's been mentioned before. A sort of downriver backwater, right? Did I do that right? Or is "downriver" Detroit? I really have trouble telling flyover cities apart.

        I have been to Omaha, though. And Detroit, come to think of it. The reminded me of the Binghamton Greyhound depot.

        • It has been hot enough here since at least March that we haven't run the A/C at least partially during a single day more than 2-3 times. June was uncharacteristically dry here as was most of June, but the rains have finally come but the typicaly resulting drop in temps haven't been as consistent and therefore the A/C is still getting too much action for my liking. We'll see if the expected average highs of 30-32C from here until January ever materialize with or without the rain, which normally dries up by November. Ugh.

            Oakdale is a suburb of St. Paul, only about 3 miles from the city limits.

                  I have never been to Minnesota, which I greatly regret.

                  I want to go there, Wisco, the UP, and NoDak after The Plague and drink til I pass out with all of you, respectively.

                      • Got power back an hour ago. I wasn't expecting it back till tomorrow, so am happily surprised. FIL is bringing a chainsaw and trailer up tomorrow to help us clear the couple of trees down in our yard.

                        • What kind of a wind do you have to have to make waterfalls run in reverse???

                          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.

                          • Spent the day cleaning up my parents backyard... I'd have to say this was just an annoyance rather than call it an inconvenience.

                            Their yard has three trees in a triangle and each is about 40 foot tall. The wind seems to have ripped every single branch under 1" diameter out of them and ripped them to shreds. The yard was literally covered in 1000s of branches, finger width or less thick, and up to about 10" long. Way too many to pick up individually but too many to run a rake over without the branches getting all criss crossed and fouling up. It was difficult to move branches more than 18" with the rake, so you couldn't gather them into piles easily... Lots of bending over and just a massive time sink for the morning today....

                              • I've observed there are only two seasons in the Midwest:

                                2. "Not so bad without the humidity."
