I wasn't even aware there were storms in the area. At least not that I remember....

Two of 'em! Neither touched down, though one was probably only a hundred feet off the ground. This was passing north of the St. Peter's Rec Plex, so you would barely have seen the front, much less the funnel from your part of town. They were the really long skinny guys that don't do much damage even if they do hit. Very cool to watch, though.

The funny part was that we'd been watching the one that was closest (maybe a mile north) for about 15 minutes when it dissipated. Almost within seconds of it being over, the sirens went off. Thanks fer nuthin' FEMA.
