Our Town is Flooded and Very Busy…

2010 September 24

Quick note: I haven’t mentioned that Northfield and much of the southern portion of Minnesota is flooded. September 2010 Flood I’ve coined it…ok so it’s not clever but is to the point. I took some shots outside of our apartment building (on the fire escape) of the Cannon River and put them on my flickr account. It’s very high and our car gets to rest on the street for some time until this passes. Sweet but getting around the looky-loos is difficult.

The National Guard is a presence today and the water is higher as of this Saturday morning. I can’t imagine the damage some of the shops and restaurants have now. Ouch.

Back of our apartment building-flooding. That area used to be a sidewalk along the river.

    Oh no! I hope that nothing of yours was damaged, and I’m glad that you are safe. We had some bad flooding in Austin a few weeks ago…it can be scary!

      The water is rising behind our apartment building more and the National Guard is out today. We were lucky that nothing of ours has been damaged but restaurants and stores will have problems opening again. I hope the town has a quick recovery!

    My good, dry thoughts are with you.
