The Jungles of Minnesota (nagging humidity and slight severe T-storm returns Monday & Tuesday) | StarTribune.com
Friday was a head-shaking moment for me. After discussing climate change on TPT "Almanac"; how a 4 percent increase in water vapor is spiking summer rains & increasing flash floods (four 1-in-1000 year floods since 2004 just in Minnesota) I drove home from St. Paul - right into one of these super-sized severe storms I had just described: hurricane-force gusts, white-out conditions with waves of horizontal rain. Instant flood. Navigating around waves and downed trees, I was grateful to get home 2 hours late. Everyone has a story to tell about Friday evening's bow echo.
