The radio is reporting that a record storm with winds topping 60 mph has swept over Minnesota overnight, leaving trees down and power out for tens of thousands of people. A full blown blizzard is raging over North Dakota and much of northern Minnesota. There are snow flurries in Minneapolis and temperatures in the 30s.
They are calling it the amazing “Land Hurricane of 2010.”
Here my windows are wide open as the morning sun warms our desert home. Sometimes I miss Minnesota, but not today. Yesterday someone at the Grub Shack was actually complaining about how warm it was overnight. Not me.
One thing that especially warms me is that there are friends Up North who will be thinking today about making a visit soon to sunny and warm Estrella Vista.
Their weather is my friend, too.
