As I sit in my office I hear a crack of thunder outside. The sky is dark, and with the tinted windows of my office building, it feels like it is night. This is the second storm we’ve had in a couple of days. A storm on Sunday left us with piles of hail that required snow plows in some cities. I got caught driving in it, while my wife was running and trying to find shelter, but that’s a story for another day.
Maybe it’s my liberal brain wanting to see what it wants to see, but it feels like our weather has become more unstable in the past few years. Storms feel more violent, and temperatures swing wildly. It makes me wonder where we’re going to end up when all of this settles down. Minnesota could be a very different place, weather wise, by the time my grandkids inherit it.
