    A Hot One in the Midwest

    Yeah, it's nice and hot up here in the Midwest. Right now in Minnesota it's coming up on 8:00pm and it's still in the upper 90s. It's actually warmer here in Minnesota right now than it is in Iowa. It's supposed to be a bit cooler tomorrow, then it looks like temps will be up in the 90s until Saturday when it's going to be about 78. Last night I glanced at my Lenovo alarm clock a couple times and it was the middle of the night and it was still in the high 80s. Honest truth is I'd rather have the hot weather than the freezing cold that we had here when I moved up here.
  2. Supposed to be a good hot one in the upper Midwest tomorrow. Here in Minneapolis it's supposed to be up close to 100 tomorrow. In Iowa the various cities are opening up cooling centers and are advising residents to be careful about the heat. One of the local stations asked how well prepared the Minnesota power grid is for the heat. In other words Minnesota won't be as fornicated as Abattoir land was or is when extreme weather hits the power grid.

    Is this spring?

    When I lived in Iowa the joke was that one wanted to experience all four seasons in one week they just had to live in Iowa for a while. Sooner or later they would have such a week. Seems to be the case up here in Minnesota as well. After a stretch with with highs in the 70s to 80s even up as high as 90 it's been fairly cool out the past few days. Supposed to warm up again over the week and be up around 80 by this weekend. So far the plant collection seems to be tolerating the cold snap fairly well. If it was getting too much colder I'd bring them inside or cover them up. I had to turn the heat back on this morning because the place finally got cold enough to need the heat on for a while. I'm not my aunt or uncle who would keep the home in the mid 60s and where sweaters at home when it's cold out. I have been wearing all my heavier long sleeved stuff lately just because once it warms up again I probably won't need them again for a few months.

    Haboob Hit The Midwest

    There was an intense dust storm that moved through the Upper Midwest (IA, SD, NE, and MN) Thursday. And there is actually a name for what happened too. The NWS said they can occur anywhere but usually occur in the Southwest.

    More Spring Weather "Fun"

    Xcel is still out cleaning things up and more bad weather is expected this evening. They had said earlier that Washburn and 55th had been blocked. The neighbor's shelter tent that just about went flying off last week during a storm was ruined. She said it got tipped right over the fence in the wind. Otherwise she said there was no other damage and I didn't see any other damage. Had a couple co-workers that had to make alternate arrangements for working today due to power and/or internet being out at home. Right now it's nice and sunny out but who knows how long that will last. It is nice to be able to have the window open at home now even with all the airliners on final approach.

    Meanwhile in Minneapolis

    Yeah we got hit up in the Twin Cities this evening; I got home to find the joint still intact and with electrical power so I'm relieved.
  7. It got up into the 80s yesterday. We had some storms though and some hail. Glad my vehicle was in its parking spot in the garage when the storms came through. For the rest of this week we're supposed to see lows in the upper 50s to highs close to 90 with some storms in the mix. Got the windows wide open now even though I live under a final approach for MSP.
  8. Spring may finally be arriving up here. It got up above 70 today. And not only are yards turning green, but various plants are finally starting to bud as well. Once trees and other plants start budding full leaves are not too far off. I was able to go out today without a jacket and felt fine. Supposed to be nice, warm, and sunny up here in Minneapolis tomorrow. Sister and brother-in-law picked a good weekend to visit. We’re planning to go see the Twins tomorrow.
  9. Nice and warm today up in Minneapolis. It's close to about 70 degrees up here now. It was raining out earlier today but it's stopped so I've had the window open for a while today. First day it's been warm enough to do that. I had the bedroom window open for a while but I decided to close it since if it starts raining suddenly I'm not in a position to move fast to close that window. I ❤️ my place but of course I could do without being under the final approach for MSP. Still not the end of the world though. I checked the conditions down in Iowa and it's in the low 80s down there. Of course being the upper Midwest it's not going to last. It's supposed to only be in the low 50s tomorrow then a few days with temps only being in the 40s. Same down in Iowa too.

    MS Outlook

    I glanced at Outlook and it said the high was gonna be about 58 tomorrow and 45 Saturday. Oh nice. Or would've been nice if I lived in Washington, DC. Which is where Outlook somehow got it in its head where I was located. In Minneapolis they're saying 16 tomorrow. Saturday looks to be a bit better with highs projected to be in the 30s.
  11. And I don't mean hammered as in getting drunk either. NWS is expecting about a foot of snow around here. Right now it's not doing much of anything out. Just cold and windy. It'll be a good day to stay in tomorrow and just camp out at home.
  12. Today was fairly nice out, with mostly sunny skies and the temp getting up to about 45 F. Looks like we're about to pay for it though. Both with more snow and temps nose-diving. I'm glad my new gig is 100% remote since it'll enable me to just stay home the next few days.
  13. It's supposed to get really cold in Iowa tomorrow, even before any wind chill is factored in. They're saying that once wind chills are factored in the temperatures will feel like more than -30 below zero. Minnesota is going to be about the same. With wind chill it'll be down as low as the -40s below zero in some parts of Minnesota. A bunch of places are cancelling school tomorrow in Iowa because of the weather. Down in Dubuque the public schools are calling off classes. The Catholic schools are right now going on as scheduled but there won't be bus service. We'll have to see if that lasts or if they decide to call off too tomorrow.

    Cold weather on tap

    Yeah it's supposed to be really cold here in the upper midwest over the next few days. For the Twin Cities the NWS is saying mid 30s tomorrow before the temp drops down close to zero Wednesday and Thursday. Brrrrr

    Snow totals

    We wound up getting about three inches in the SW Minneapolis area where I'm staying right now. I talked to my mom this morning for a bit and she said they got a couple inches yesterday. Down in the Des Moines area where my sister lives they got about a foot of snow. Even though it snowed pretty much all day yesterday traffic was humming right along up here. Not like other areas of the country where so much as a dusting is enough to shut down an area. It's sunny out today up here but the temperature is only in the teens. Doing some laundry right now then I'll probably head downtown for a few hours later today.
  16. We're in the process of digging ourselves out of the snow. Dad said we had a little over four inches at the farm yesterday. Looks like a lot of places here in Iowa did get that six inches the weatherman promised Friday night. Couple spots even got close to 8 inches. Brother backed out at the last minute on taking me to church this morning so mom did. Which caused issues cause they wanted to go to their own church at the same time. Mom wound up taking me and dad met her at their church at 10. I don't know that I would have gone otherwise but this is my last Sunday as a regular member of the church and I said I wanted to serve one more time at the altar. I had been there about eight years. There was only 12 of us at church today with most people backing out due to the weather. The roads are getting better but still kind of covered. I walked to a brewery after church and it wasn't too bad. It was just about one mile. Mostly flat and even a bit downhill. Buildings acted as windblocks and I was layered up so I didn't freeze too bad. It's only 10f as I write this. Brrr....
  17. It looks like the heavier stuff is going to stay to the south, which now forecasters think may see more than six inches of snow. If today's forecast is accurate then we'll get anywhere from a trace up to four inches of snow tomorrow. Of course in reality it'll be anywhere from nothing up to several feet of snow. Sometimes they predict a snowpocalypse and nothing happens and sometimes we get caught by surprise. We picked up a take and bake pizza for tomorrow night and will just have that. The take and bake place was pretty busy today with people getting pizza for parties along with some probably getting tomorrow's dinner.

    Active New Year's Coming

    Looks like this weekend will be snowy in Iowa So we appear to be in the 4 to 7 inch band. Southern Iowa it looks like they'll get almost a foot. Of course in reality we'll have anywhere from a trace to 99 inches of snow. Right now it looks like we'll get hit on Saturday and it'll be clear out on Sunday.
  19. It started snowing shortly before 10am central here. By noon we had 2.5 inches of snow on the ground and it's still coming down pretty good. There's a heavy band of snow moving through eastern Iowa right now. We'll probably have four inches by the time it's over later today. Of course Iowa drivers can't go more than a few months without forgetting how to drive in winter weather. Including this moron was was clocked going 111 mph this morning.
  20. Looks like we'll be due for a couple inches of snow this morning. And it looks like we'll be getting more on Wednesday. We've had a few winter weather events over the past few weeks but nothing too major so we'll have to see if this turns out to be an actual winter system or another case of the several inches promised by a weather person being a no-show. I hope the weather is cooperative Friday night into Saturday because I do want to go to my cousin's New Year's party since I'll be moving out of CovidKimIsStan the following week.

    December Aftermath

    We got through the severe weather where I am in Iowa OK. We didn't lose power and so far we don't have any real damage here to speak of. Family got through it too OK. There's quite a bit of damage in other parts of Iowa. Floyd County was hit by a possible tornado yesterday. One person was killed in Benton County when high winds toppled their semi truck. As of 8:20am on 12/16 there are about 48,000 power outages reported.
  22. It's supposed to get down into the mid 20s for lows over the next few days with highs only in the mid 40s. Finally pulled the window unit out of my room at home this evening, I think I won't need it anymore for a few months. It's supposed to be nicer this weekend so a bike ride into town to go to church may be in order and have my brother bring my car in with the bike rack to give me a ride home then.
  23. Over the past few days we've had multiple seasons in a week. We've had days where the temps got down in to the upper 40s for lows and low 60s for highs. Then this weekend it got nice and warm again. It was in the upper 80s yesterday afternoon around here and some spots in Iowa were up in the 90s. It was still warm out today around here with highs in the upper 70s. According to the NWS they're expecting us to be in the 70s and 80s next week. Might be seeing rain tonight and tomorrow then clear most of the week. I'll have to see what the weather does tomorrow after work if I'm gonna ride or not.

    Fall preview

    We're having our first preview of fall's coming attractions today. Right now it's 63 degrees out and it's been down in the 50s for lows. It's been raining most of the morning but it looks like most of it is sliding on out to the east now. I had a bit of an internal debate about whether I should take out the window air conditioner in my room now or wait awhile. Yeah, think I'll wait. It'll probably be a thousand degrees in the shade sometime in the next couple weeks if I take it out now. Maybe wait until the end of September or early October then pull it out.
  25. Seems like the worst warm weather stuff always hits right in August. We just had some bad storms roll through the area. Here's a screenshot of the NWS radar from about 45 minutes ago. We had wind and 1/4" hail here. No major damage that I can see to anything. Thought we were going to be without power and internet for a while but it came back before too long. Lots of electrical lines and trees down in the area. The worst of it was up north of where I am, such as up in Fayette county where there were collapsed buildings and roofs getting peeled off. Lots of people without power here. Temperature dropped 20 degrees over the past hour.
