Flood 2009

I'm sure that if you are from North Dakota, or even if you've watched the news in the last week, you know about the flooding that is happening all around our state. Our eyes are glued to the news to hear the latest reports on what's going on where, especially for our friends and clients in Fargo. If you'd like to check out some amazing photographs from the flooding in Fargo, go to ::

Luckily in Grand Forks, the Red River is predicted to crest between 50-53 feet, which is under the 60 foot levees we have. Today Kory and I took a walk down to the Sorlie Bridge in Grand Forks that has been closed because of flooding. It's about two blocks from our office.

Here's the bridge and river ::
Metal plates were placed in between columns on DeMers Ave.

Stairs down to the new swimming pool ::
I've never been able to stand in the middle of the Sorlie Bridge before.
This marker shows where the river was during different floods over the last 100 years. The top was in 1997, when the whole town of Grand Forks was flooded.
And here we are, freezing in the wind and snow (but looking rather happy?) ::
