Sunday saw lots of rain By Mark Anthony, Meteorologist Weather column: I hope you had a great weekend despite the fact that Sunday was basically a washout as heavy rain fell across the region. Some parts of the state even saw record rainfall for that date. Reports of one to four inches were common across much of Central and West Central Minne- sota. I heard from a listener that they received more than eight inches of rainfall near the Alexan- dria area over the weekend. Drier air finally worked its way back into Minnesota on Monday morning. A ridge of high pressure pushed the front further to the north allowing for a clearing sky and warmer temperatures return- 98 degrees! Weather fact: Rainbows are simply beautiful "multicoloured arcs of light in the sky." Rainbows occur when it's both raining and the sun is shining simultaneously. To see a rainbow, you must "stand with your back to the sun, other- wise it will not be visible." MN AT A GLANCE: Moorhead Low 71 High 88 Duluth Low 65 High 84 Central Minn.

Veterans rendezvous planned Central Minnesota veterans and their families are invited to Rendezvous for an afternoon of music, fun, and connection to fel- low veterans and the St. Cloud VA and its programs, from 1 to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 3, at the Circle Parking Lot on the campus of the St. Cloud VA Medical Center. "In naming this event, we chose Rendezvous for some of the sym- bolism it conveys, but the num- ber one thing we want to provide is an opportunity for veterans to connect with each other in a relax- ing, fun and welcoming environ- ment," said Brett Jagodzinski, a VA employee organizing the event. "During the fur trade era of the early nineteenth century, the 'Rendezvous' was an annual gath- ering where trappers traded their fur pelts for goods and supplies, and engaged in fellowship and camaraderie after a long, often lonely year spent trapping in the mountains," explained Jagodzin- ski. "In the military, a rendezvous point is often a prearranged meet- ing place where troops know they can meet up with one another if they get separated during battle. This event sort of blends both of those ideas together." Planned activities include live music concerts, food, and family games, Jagodzinski said. A variety of Veteran-focused VA informa- tion booths will also be available during the event. "The musical performers will be high quality, national tour- ing shows," Jagodzinski said. Per- formers will be announced on the St. Cloud VA's Facebook page at The event is open to all residen- tial Veterans, to Veterans through- out Central Minnesota, and their immediate families. Financial and volunteer sup- port is being provided by the Clearwater Legion Riders, Min- nesota Patriot Guard, Clearwater American Legion, Weber's Deck, and White Oak Realty.
