That storm was really crappy. I wasn't at work that day but I drove up 77 next to the airport and Richfield (bordering the airport) was just pummeled. Trees down, power out everywhere, flash flooding. If there is weather, at the airport it is significantly magnified. Airplanes like wind, but not when they are asleep for the night.

As a matter of fact, we had a plane land at MSP shortly before that storm hit and were quite delayed getting out of MSP for TOL. We played that fake ATIS wav file for our Captain at MSP and he busted a gut laughing at it!

A side note here, at one point, MSP tower was reporting their wind meter was broken and, at another point, they were reporting a tornado touching down on the airfield.

Regos of the damaged planes would be HELPFUL.

I had a good feeling the weather was pretty awful up there. All three of our flights from MSP that arrive during my shift ran an average of 120 minutes behind schedule. Our 1905 arrival had to do a gate-return for fuel and didn't arrive until 2230. Many a misconnect got to spend the night in ATL last night.  Smile

I was on the last UAL flight from ORD to MSP on Tuesday night. Got in at 10:40pm just before they announced that the airport was under a Thunderstorm warning. It was an interesting, and a bit bumpy, flight in over MSP to land in the thunderstorms. The UAL pilots did a great job flying, however, and I got to listen to it all on channel 9  Smile.

On the radio freq. I heard many Pinnacle and Mesaba regionals trying to depart quick before the storm came in but I was glad to be in my Boeing 737 instead of a Saab 340 for that storm. It was horrible driving home, too. Flooded roadways, pooring rain, and very strong winds.
