These mega storms gotta be tough on farm critters,I was in central nebraske one summer day as a monster wall cloud approached,small town sirens going off etc.not far from our location in north platte we watched a twistee touch down as we flanked it,soon after the storm passed we drove thru the raveged farm lands,barnes/homes shreaded,cattle were bloodied around the eyes from large hail stones,cars/trucks looked like a midget beat them with a ball bat,windows blowin out,bad deal.

some of these small towns I pass thru ppl have adapted to these ravaging storms,steel roof's on every house,not sure if that's the cure all as my pole barn steel roof with a lifetime warrenty got beatup pretty bad couple  years ago big time hail,dang warrenty from menards didn't cover replacement,tennis ball size hail did the roof in.

Don't car dealers make out OK with hail storms?

A) They have insurance coverage.

B) They still get to sell the cars at a discounted rate.

Always wondered if the insurance plus the profit on the damaged cares was more than selling cars without damage.   :confused:

We had hail that started out as quarter size, then ended with pea sized. By the time it was said and done, the ground was white with ice.

Good question steve-o,I doubt car dealers would disclose how they make out financally with ins claims,I remember years past dealers having "Hail sales" buy as is,bet these dealers collected ins claims and rolled the dice for profit.

few years back a white bear lake dealership had a new vehicle damage sale,seems the white bear lake had a massive fish fly bug hatch,1000's of these flies dropped on the new vehicles and died,acid from these dead bugs ate into the vehicle clear coat leaving pock marks "buy as is" was the slogan.

Same thing happens to our personel vehicles,summer travels we collect a mass of dead bugs on our vehicle grill and nose of the hood,over time the acid from these dead critters loosens the paint,creating spots down to the sheet metal,rust eventually starts iffin one keeps their vehicle long term.

Those weather guys sure do like to forecast Armageddon.   And now with such a wide broadcast area and team coverage everywhere, they are bound to get real-time footage of the worst of the severe weather every time it happens.  They look like bloody savants.

no I don't think so, mother nature does what she wants when she wants..  it is some what early maybe but I don't think so...

The earliest reported tornadoes in Minnesota were the three tornadoes that touched down on March 6, 2017 . The next earliest verified tornado in Minnesota occurred on March 18, 1968, north of Truman in Martin County. The latest reported tornadoes in Minnesota were on December 15, 2021.

just found this...

Check out Fridley Tornadoes on MNopedia. First week of May, 1965. I had hitchhiked to downtown Minneapolis about 5:00 that evening. Hitchhiked back and had to walk a few miles to get home about 9:00. From up on a high hill I could normally see lights of the northwest suburbs, including highway 100 and Btookdale Shopping. Center.  That night it was pitch black with the only lights visible being from the gas lanterns that people used to have on posts in their front yards. Lots of destruction in Fridley, Spring  Lake Park, and Moundsview. .
