Sweet pics! I had my best bass bite ever immediately after a big thunderstorm cell moved through.

I just heard that there was an unfortunate loss of life during that storm system in ST Paul over the weekend. Thoughts and prayers to those people.

Good shot of the storm though.

About 30 miles south of me is where it hit bad [Parkersburg Iowa]Several dead and alot of the town is decimated to flat rubble.

We were in the basement for awhile,but got lucky.

A friend who lives in Prairie du Chien Wisc found some tax papers in his yard from someone in Parkersburg where it hit-about 150 miles away.

The guy who is working on my house right now said he was out in his yard last night and an aluminum rain gutter from a house just fell out of the sky and landed next to him. It wasn't from his house and he lives in the country with no neighbors nearby. Amazing.

yeah its the only pic i got, we got off the lake fast, it went from dead calm to whitecaps in less than a minute, from dry to huge fat raindrops very quickly. So no pics of that, after we got off I got a pic when it stopped raining, then we turned attention to fishing smile wish i'd taken more though.

very sad to hear about the homes and lives destroyed, hopefully the communities hit by these storms can rebuild and heal quickly

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
