According to a tweet posted by the White House today, Minnesota has 138,702 miles of public roads - 11 percent of which are in poor condition and Minnesota has 13,137 bridges - 12 percent of which are considered structurally deficient.  They go on to say that if Congress fails to act, here are the very real consequences for Minnesota: 11,094 jobs will be jeopardized and 1,911 active highway and transit projects will be slowed or stopped. Our neighbors to the east, in Wisconsin are sitting at about 21% of their roads in poor condition and our neighbors to the west in both North and South Dakota are far better at just 6% of roads in poor condition.

Summer is the peak season for one of the nation's deadliest weather phenomena--lightning. Though lightning strikes peak in summer, people are struck year round. In the United States, an average of 51 people are killed each year by lightning, and hundreds more are severely injured. Here are some lightning safety myths and facts:Myth: Lightning never strikes the same place twice. Fact: Lightning often strikes the same place repeatedly, especially if it’s a tall, pointy, isolated object. The Empire State Building is hit nearly 100 times a year. Myth: Rubber tires on a car protect you from lightning by insulating you from the ground. Fact: Most cars are safe from lightning, but it is the metal roof and metal sides that protect you, NOT the rubber tires. Remember, convertibles, motorcycles, bicycles, open-shelled outdoor recreational vehicles and cars with fiberglass shells offer no protection from lightning. When lightning strikes a vehicle, it goes through the metal frame into the ground. Don't lean on doors during a thunderstorm.Myth: A lightning victim is electrified. If you touch them, you’ll be electrocuted. Fact: The human body does not store electricity. It is perfectly safe to touch a lightning victim to give them first aid. This is the most chilling of lightning Myths. Imagine if someone died because people were afraid to give CPR!
