Severe weather*****Edited with photos!! Edited again!

Posted by   + Show Post

I'm in MN and we have flood warnings and severe storm warnings until tomorrow. Just watched the news and some parts by me have gotten over 4 inches in the last hour and that it takes 6 inches an hour to move a vehicle. Lots of roads are closed and were supposed to get inches more throughout the night! I'm not used to this kind of severe weather.....it's different than a snow storm!

And of course my DH is out of town for a couple more days!

 

****They are still closing roads and evacuationg people as the water settles! Moose Lake is closed, you cant get in our out. The St Louis River is crazy. CHeck out this link of the aeriel view of the river!

Cover your window in the kitchen with foil to help block the sun.


Quoting Luv2BaMommy9809:

Thank you, darling!!  I think I got a good handle on it.  The bedrooms, bath, and living room are not sun facing rooms.  I have three fans going.  One in each bedroom and one facing the playmat in the living room, although I am thinking about bringing in a second...when dh, and my oldest get home this afternoon, it is going to get crowded in here!  I also periodically pat them down with a damp facecloth:  neck, head, face, back, feet, and little sticky armpits, too!  I am not as worried for them as I was.

I am however, worried for myself.  Making dinner is going to be uncomfortable.  The kitchen does face the sun and adjacent to the tiny sun room and there is only a valance there.  It is a sauna in there already!  I am not going to fuss...I am thinking a salad (which I make every night) and sandwhiches...tuna sounds pretty good.  I am pretty sure I have all the fixings.  I better because I am not driving to the market in my little putt putt with no AC!! lol  Yeah, we're a mess!

Quoting -KJ:

Will be thinking of you! Hope it doesn't get as hot as they think!





Quoting Luv2BaMommy9809:

I am in the East Coast and we are in for record breaking heat for the next two days.  Air quality alerts have been issued and shelters have been set up for the elderly and other that need AC...

I hope we'll be alright with the three fans we got!!

HANG IN THERE, MAMA!!

Man, I'm in the cities, I'm so glad the worst didn't hit us. My best friend is in Duluth and told me the president classified it as being in a state of emergency!
