Went out on the main basin of ML today to swim.
81.1 degree water temp. That is more of an early August water temp. It has been hot, for sure.
We were on Sugar Lake near Annandale last week and the water was chilly. But that is a 50’ deep lake.

I grew up across the street from sugar lake! It was a popular lake for sure.

Roughly 40 years ago a business acquaintance/friend of mine who was a muskie fanatic took me fishing on Sugar Lake. He puts on an oversized swimming lure, and first cast he hooks and lands a 5 1/2 lb. Largemouth Bass. I immediately think, this is going to be great! Naturally, neither of us got a fish, or even a strike, the rest of the day. :(

Really a nice lake though, especially for so close in to the city.

I was hoping to catch some walleye or some northern/Muskie while fishing with the kids. I bought a ton of leeches and minnows (including large suckers). We did catch 2 tiny walleye, but not one single northern.

Every one of my sucker minnows was eaten within 3 minutes of casting the big old northern bobber and every time it was a bass. We caught bass all week long on every type of live or artificial bait.

By the time we talked to a local who gave us insight on how/where to catch Muskie, the trip was over.

The combination of fireworks, no wind, and a bit of haze made it look foggy on the drive home tonight. The air smelled like sulfur and it wasn't moving anywhere.

This is all of North MPLS tonight. The fireworks and bonfires have died off at this point, but the smoke is just hanging.

Edit: I'm not complaining. Tonight of all nights, let it fly. MPLS isn't having a celebration this year, so go nuts. Our little guy was woken up a few times, but we can handle it for a night or two.

The lack of wind helps all the neighbors chainsmoking odor hang over my pool. It’s lovely.

I'm not a weather expert by any means, so I'm wondering why that tornado didn't have any more of an effect pushing or sucking in the folks that passed by or the dude taking video.

That was an incredible video, never seen anything like that before

I told Rube on FB last night that we must have missed it because I saw the sound and light show for about 2 hours straight but no rain. I went to bed around 11.

At 12:30 the Toddler woke us up due to what finally did hit us. I love a good overnight thunderstorm but this was insane

Was interesting for me where the early round went south of me, 45 minutes later, was both south and north of me with a pretty good gap in between. Then the third round went mostly overhead. Interestingly, I don't think I got that much rain at night. I was close to 1 inch from earlier in the day, and only ended up at 1.36 total since yesterday morning.
The constant rumble from about 10 until at least 1 was pretty impressive, too.

Weird storm. Usually they track east, so I was preparing to get hit in Woodbury, but it never really made it here. It just kind of stalled out over Bloomington/Richfield/Edina. I only got about a half inch of rain last night.

I THINK it was the 12-sh Severe Thunderstorm Warning that woke me up (they kind of blended together) that referenced "ping-pong ball sized hail" having been reported with the system in the Maple Grove area. While I wasn't actually watching outside, I didn't hear anything sounding like hail hitting the roof/siding/etc, and there's no signs of damage outside (not even branches broken off) so I don't think I got hail of any size in Brooklyn Park, at least.

I saw the same reports. I'm a bit of a night owl, so I was still up for it. There were some decent wind gusts, but didn't see the hail, thankfully. Went to bed around 2:00am when the rain and lightning were easing up a bit.

Lord I LOVE a good cracking thunderstorm! Last night was crazy in Uptown, very close strikes, constant light show for hours. It was a downpour, woke to 2 1/2 inches and an overflowing fountain in the backyard. I’m pretty sure we got small hail around 1:30 but I couldn’t really see it, the rain sound just changed to more pinging.

Yesterday afternoon it was torrential in Hopkins. Water was over the curb in the downtown area. Got another burst in the evening, but I didn't recall any hail in my area.

At our home in Plymouth we had very heavy downpours and lots of lightning and thunder after midnight until about 1:30am. With four skylights the hail made it sound like we were camped out in a tent; it was very loud. All the lightning and thunder and hail and made it impossible for us to get back to sleep until it finally subsided. At the storm's peak one lightning bolt literally exploded very near our home, and the booming thunder was nearly simultaneous...it had to have struck VERY close. No structural damage, except early this morning we did find that one of our TV's wouldn't display a picture. I called Xfinity and after about a half hour of troubleshooting they got it working.

Two years ago I was at my uncle‘a house in lake country. We had forgotten something in the car and during a lightning storm I stood under the front door overhang working up the nerve to sprint to my car. The thunder clap of a lifetime nearly made me shat my pants. I could not tell if the lightning flash game from my left or right.

After I ran into the house and waited for the storm to subside we went on a walk and discovered a nearby tree had totally exploded leaving portions of the trunk in branches of nearby trees and wood chunks in the lake about 50 yards away.

Very impressive and quite the adrenaline rush!

Different species of trees have different water contents in their heartwood. IE A Cottonwood hit by a big bolt produces a big explosion from all that instant steam. An Ash not nearly as spectacular. Ash just don't have the water content of Cottonwood.

That's only in MN, and it also would be GRAY here, not grey.

I've used grey since I was a little kid. Think my teacher did a good job explaining it was the more traditional/formal option and it stuck.

The tornado warning at 8:00 was for rotation about 3-4 miles from my house and hit while we were trying to put our Toddler to bed. We finally got him down after a trip to the basement but it wasn’t pleasant.

We put the TV on to watch the weather and he told my wife “I don’t want to watch this” which was about the only enjoyable part

We're without power for the second time today. First was this morning, but it wasn't weather related. A squirrel made an unfortunate mistake.

That was a pretty nasty cell that came through. Seeing reports of very large trees/branches down, so unfortunately, I'm not surprised there are some power outages from this.

On the plus side, should be done with weather for the night, so if it's not too widespread, they'll probably get things up again relatively quick. Fingers crossed for you.

The latest storm where I'm at in Plymouth was pretty uneventful. The sky turned this very weird color, a little bit of small hail, constant thunder from a distance, and moderate rain throughout...but that was about it.

Ditto here in Tonka. Sounds like the north got the worst of it. A couple friends' power is out.

You heard the sirens though didn’t you? I was a bit surprised by them, but unfortunately she got the emergency text so there was no avoiding a trip to the basement,

The sky was absolutely weird though like you said

I was sitting here figuring it would be like the series of storms earlier this week, but then suddenly I heard a very loud wooshing/rumbling sound. Looked outside and holy damn the trees were bending more than I have ever seen here before. Right then my phone got the tornado warning alert and I heard the sirens faintly under all of the wind noise. Got the kid up (we had just put him down for sleep as well) and went downstairs as I could hear sticks hitting our windows.

Channel five I know was showing footage of downed trees all over France Ave just a few blocks west of us. Good number of neighbor trees down, we got lucky. Some decent sized branches out of our maple, but they didn't hit anything on the way down it seems.

I was checking the radar, and it looked like a "buckle down, turn the lights off, here comes the show" and then, not really anything. I sat on my balcony for most of it.

As is so often the case, the actual damage is less than what's being portrayed on the news, as it happens.
(nor to say, the next time the warning and damage reports COULD be accurate.

It just hit the "heat island" (694/494 loop) and veered north. Lately it's been veering south. I'm on the western edge of the heat island, barely east of Ridgedale.

The Radar picture when they triggered the Tornado Warning was about the weirdest I've seen. Huge area that looked like it was "rotating" but it was large enough that I suspect it was a huge downburst, and a large area all heading back toward the radar site. Will be interested to see what the NWS says when they survey tomorrow. The way the trees blew down will tell the story.

I'm in North MPLS. They say the average is about 4 hours. Things in the freezer are usually okay for roughly a day provided you don't open it, but the fridge warms up pretty quick. Milk, meat, and eggs are the big three that can get you sick if they've warmed up to much, even if you get them cold again and cook them thoroughly.

Driving around this morning I think you're big downburst theory is correct. Most of the damage is downed trees and seems to be contained to Robbinsdale and North MPLS for the most part. Most of the trees appear to be laying ENE, base to top.

Maybe it’s time for Xcel to actually invest in their infrastructure. Bury the local power lines. Should have been done 20-30 years ago.

We're located in Plymouth and inside the 494/694 loop yet we don't have Xcel; instead we have Wright-Hennepin Electric Co-op. All neighborhood lines are buried, and as one would expect it is extremely rare to lose power.
