So the huge storm the midwest is in, is technically a class 3 hurricane.
Last night, the local weather said the gusts all day had been around 70 mph, with consistent wind at 40-50 mph.
Im in Minneapolis/St. Paul.
Oh, and the wind isn't very strong, but only because the friction of the trees and slight hills. That's why 50 mph sounds wimpy for a class 3.
Also, IT SNOWED TODAY.
Weird. A hurricane in minnesota, with snow. It wasnt all snow, so thats why its not a blizzard.
Just thought I would share.
