Gut Wrenching

13 posts in this topic

I spent most of my evening last night viewing videos and pictures of the storms in Hugo. My heart and prayers go out to all the people hard hit by the storms. I am a former Ramsey-Anoka-Coon Rapids resident, so I am very familiar with the area. I know several people in the area, my best friends aunt and uncle live only six blocks from the hardest hit areas. I am hoping the damage isn't too bad to my old neighborhood in Ramsey, even though I am up here now I still think of that area as my home. As I mentioned in an earlier post, keep an eye on the weather. Storms like these can hit hard and fast. Keep yourself safe.

It's sad to see. Part of summer in the midwest. I hope no one was hurt, that's the only thing that can't be replaced.

I heard on the news this morning that the parents and a sibling of the two year old are all in critical condition. I guess their house exploded in the storm. I would avoid Hugo today. This morning it was one big traffic jam.

One of my son's ex-girl freinds and her husband lost their home. He was in the papers, and that is how my son recognized him. frown

I work for the same organization as the Prindle Mother. We got an email today about this we can do to help. I know I'll being giving some vaction time that they turn to money for these folks. For those that want to help the Prindles in this huge tragedy and for others that lost their homes, here is some information I thought I would pass on.

A fund has been set up to accept donations for the Prindle Family: Money donations are being accepted by U.S. Banks - any branch can accept the donations. The account is called the Gerard Prindle Family Fund, In Loving Memory of Nathaniel. All funds will go directly to the family. For more information you can call (651)429-7758.

Finally, a financial donation can be made directly to the Twin Cities Chapter of the American Red Cross by visiting www.redcrosstc.org or calling their Financial Donation Hotline at (612) 460-3700.

Thank you for posting this Sandmannd. It is devastating enough to lose your home but a child too is almost too much for anyone to take. My prayers are with them.

    • We are heading back up to Isle Royale for the 4th holiday weekend ,,, Hope to have another video when we get back 
    •   My Father-in-law (a master plumber) always used to say you only need to know 3 things to be a plumber:          sh*t doesn't run uphill         payday is on Friday         the boss is an ahole      
    • I've been getting them at Costco,  I've checked slyvee and sams but never see them.  Although one of the butcher's at slyvee says he can get them which might not be a bad idea since you can have some fat cut off before you pay per #. I picked one up a couple of weeks ago and it was about 2.80 a #, which isn't too bad yet considering bacon in the store can run quite a bit more than that.  You making bacon or doing pork belly burnt ends moon lake?
    • Excellent summer fishing.  Charters catching strong numbers.  Jig/minnow or jig/leech and bouncers with spinners with crawlers or minnows still producing walleyes. When the wind is right for pulling spinners, they have been lights out.  Walleyes being caught in varying depths, 7-31' of water.  Some shallow shorelines still producing. Pike mixed in all over the lake.    Walleyes in the Rainy River with a better morning/evening bite.  Trolling cranks or pulling spinners a good idea to cover more water. Smallmouth bass are out and about along shorelines and feeder streams. Sturgeon fishing opens again Saturday, July 1st.     Up at the NW Angle, water temps are in the low to mid 60’s. Wind blown shorelines are giving up walleyes via leeches or crankbaits along the weed line. Crawlers on a  gold and/or orange spinner are producing fish out of the mud between 22 - 26 feet. On the Canadian side, bottom bouncers and spinners have been filling the livewells outside of monument bay between 24-28 feet.  Jigging near Skeet and Kennedy Islands have produced nice sized walleye and numerous perch. Great smallmouth action in Tranquil channel and the mouth of Johnston passage. Muskie fishing picking up with high 40” class fish being caught with a few 50's from shallow bottom bays or adjacent to them.
    • Busy time of year out there so if u get canceled it is hard to rebook especially with the smaller operations. Bummer though as it can be a lot of fun if they are biting. 
    • I understand that you never really know when the Warriors are going to fall off or if they even will.  Hopefully the Wolves can make the playoffs and gain some experience, maybe teach the rest of the team how to play defense, so that in a few years we are knocking on the door and can lure in a top free agent to put us over the edge.  Its just an awful tough time to be a good team right now with the Warriors so clearly heads and shoulders above everyone else.
    • I couldn't have said it better myself pikestabber!  We have to go out there and do what we can now and not try to set up for "when the warriors are old" cuz the way the NBA is going who knows what players may join forces to set up the next "Warriors" squad.  Heck maybe the Wolves will be that next team !!  I just really love the addition of Butler and from the sounds of it we are not done yet and I am excited to see what will happen in free agency and if we could really land the likes of Kyle Lowry one of the other PG's that are hitting the FA market.  Nice to see the Wolves making moves!!
    • I would ask Getanet where to get some good ones!   Pork Belly Stinks Started by Getanet, May 1
