How high's the water mamma?

10 posts in this topic

So how is everyone doing with all of this rain? Anyone having any flooding problems? I just took a drive around Rochester and there are quite a few spots that look bad. Sounds like it is much worse to the east of here. Looks like fishing will be out of the question for a while eh...?

I grew up by Lewiston and checked with my parents and they said they got 17"!!! They have one of those digital rain gauges. They have 3 inches of water in their lower basement, but they're not complaining too much because there are people who have it a lot worse and there are also 6 confirmed deaths due to this flooding.

I also have a cousin that lives in Goodview and he had about 2 feet of water on the main floor of his house as well as a basement full of water.

My thoughts and prayers to those who lost a loved one to this disaster.

Johnny Cash says it's flying through the Falls and Hammond.

Spent the day in Hammond moving stuff to higher ground. I made a trip to Ponderosa, Macs, The Green Bridge, The Falls and Hammond. Yikes!

The Zumbro goes through our back yard. We are up on a small cliff. The river was way out of its banks last night behind our place and about seven or eight feet up the cliff. The water was over some of the roads west of Mantorville.

When we go out on the deck it sounds like a train roaring through the trees below.

      I can not think of any lake in the Ely are that would have 5" of ice. Even the beaver ponds in the Tower area barely have ice on them! Cliff

      Took a ride around to look at a few lakes today in the Duluth area today.  Needless to say I did not like what I found.  Mostly open water is what I came across.  Any thin ice I found will not be able to hold up to any kind of wind or heavy snow fall.  Come on colder temps...   As always, Take care, Tom (BD110)

      Someone is already fishing on 5 inches in Ely. Look up rough fish on google, then go to the first result, then go to "recent forum topics". Neat stuff.

      I took my last casts of the year today on the Cannon River, just below the dam at Alexander Park. Now I'm waiting on ice, fingers crossed for Dec 17th as it's a long weekend for me.
