The weather for Taste of Northfield 2012, Round 2 started out gorgeous on Thursday afternoon (it was rained out in June) and Bridge Square began filling up with hungry townsfolk.

But around 6 pm, a small but powerful thunderstorm drew a bead on downtown Northfield.

The storm sent the townsfolk running for cover. After the rain let up a bit, I rode my bike home, assuming it was all over for the night.

I returned an hour later, shocked to see Bridge Square packed with people eating and musicians performing. Women were bestowing their charms upon NDDC‘s Ross Currier in appreciation, his Alaskan donut addiction notwithstanding.  Once again, Northfield citizens had pulled together to defend the town.

    We were fortunate to have no raindrops falling on our heads during the Wear Purple for Maggie Lee event at 5 p.m. at the Showmobile. I want to thank those who participated on stage with me--Scott Richardson, Randy Ferguson, Chris Moen, Ed Kuhlman, Ann Etter, Joannie Johnson and especially Marilyn Sellars. Also WCCO-TV answered my call and televised a 6 p.m. news spot at Meows for Maggie sponsored by Prairie’s Edge in the Northfield News office. Hard to resist kittens and a story like Maggie’s long service here.
