I'm a Fungi!

Talk about your rainy spells, man. In southeastern Minnesota, five people died in flooding overnight, whole houses are floating away, and cars disappeared into mudslides.

Here in Northfield, it was just a gray, wet day. We've collected almost three inches in the last two days. About the only thing worth noting is that the wetness has caused an explosion of fungus in the Arb: running today, I saw hundreds of tiny little toadstools, often in big wheat-colored clusters; some mushrooms with caps as big as dinner plates; and, strangely, lots of things that looked just like loaves of bread - but had the familiar mushroom innards when squashed.

Forecast: Significant blowing and drifting, with the possibility of heavy accumulation in rural areas.
