That was quite the storm that ripped through the north end of the Twin Cities, Saturday night. Straight line winds and small tornadoes pummeled areas from Rogers, all the way southeast to Hudson, Wisconsin. Other parts of the metro received torrential rain. I was taking a fare from Roseville to St. Louis Park as the brunt of the storm was baring down the Anoka area. There must of been some wind damage in St. Louis Park though, as there were scattered power outages in that area.
Luckily, the Twins-White Sox game at Target Field was a pitchers duel, that lasted less than 2 hours. The heavy rain that flooded a couple of streets in the downtown area hit minutes after the final out was recorded.
Several thousand customers are still without power, as of this morning.
I can't tell you how much I enjoyed my interview with IP candidate for governor, Rob Hahn. It's refreshing to talk to someone who lays out his agenda and says, here's who I am, if you like what you see, vote for me. Personally, I like some of his ideas, but I think he may be a bit too pro big business for my liking.
Again, I found myself having to play dodge-dummy on the roads, last Saturday. This time it was a semi, hauling for Ashley Furniture. I was trying to get over to the Little Canada Road exit from west bound 694 / southbound 35E. I signaled for the lane change and the truck sped up to block me from making a safe lane change. I slowed to let him go by me, but he slowed up as well. I had to floor it to finally end the cat and mouse game and make my exit. For my troubles, I got the single finger salute from this "professional" driver. I only wish others took their road responsibilities as serious as I do.
That's all I have for now. Have a great day.
