Friday Night.

We had serious problems with Dihydrogen Monoxide last night.

We had two thunderstorms rip through the Twin Cities area last night. The first one had high winds and a heavy downpour. Central Avenue and Monroe Street in NE Minneapolis were blocked by flooding under the railroad overpasses. The second thunderstorm included a tornado that crossed North Minneapolis and hit the city water intake plant. Water service was out for several hours.

Oh, and I cut my left thumb while slicing potatoes and had to go to the ER at HCMC for two stitches and a tetanus shot. Because Central Avenue had been blocked I had to walk over to Jefferson Street and cross under the railroad bridge at 19th Avenue, which was not flooded, in order to return home.

Time for a pizza.
