Yup, it had to rain..

Woke up to thunder and some wild lightening at 6:20. Yup, it rained again. Not much and I hope not south but I don't know if it is done yet. Crazy but there was just one big storm along the border and of course it had to stop here!

12 Things you should know about living in NW Minnesota

  3. Summer often is very hot and muggy.
