After it looked like things were going to be calmer than forecasted sh&t got real around 7:00 in Mankato.  Those winds were no joke at the head of the storm, thank goodness they only lasted a couple minutes.  They turned the sirens on for the winds which I don’t blame the county for that.  The storm really wasn’t much, some good rain with lightning and thunder but I didn’t hear any hail.

A lot of areas around my West Mankato neighborhood lost electricity and a few towns around did as well.  I drove around the neighborhood on my way into work this morning and I only saw a few small branches on the ground, that is surprising.

My normally overly anxious dog fared really good.  She is a very anxious dog already and storms usually put her over the top but she did really well.
