Labor Day Weekend So Far: Wind, Hail, and a Beautiful Day

Sunday, September 1, 2013. Labor Day Weekend. It's been a beautiful day here: not hot, a welcome change of pace from the rest of the week. We've had a heat advisory and then some storms. Here's part of what I saw on the weather page for Sauk Centre:

Minnesota counties involved in the heat advisory, Thursday afternoon. August 29, 2013.

Saturday afternoon, storms coming. August 31, 2013.

They were moving fast. August 31, 2013.

The storms had 70 mile an hour winds, and hail. I haven't seen more than a light sprinkling of leaves and twigs on streets and lawns here in town. I hope the much-needed rain didn't come at the expense of crop damage, or worse.

Labor Day weekend is the unofficial end of summer around here. I'm looking forward to a nice, comfortable autumn. What we actually get: we'll see.
