As promised, I walked the one and a half miles (one way) down to the river today to get some pictures of the flooding. My legs and feet may not like me in the morning, but I had a fun time, particularly since today was such a nice day - with the sun shining and the temperature close to 50 - to go on a walk. I wish I had a pedometer or something to know for sure, but I figure I have probably walked about 4-5 miles in total today. I feel great!
Anyway, my photos are posted below. If you'd like to view all the photos in a single Imageshack gallery, click here. Otherwise, just click on the thumbnails below to see the larger version. I don't have any captions right now, but I should sometime in the future. Most of the photos speak for themselves though, so captions aren't really necessary for all of them.
Oh yeah, I should probably write that Grand Forks should be well protected for this flood. The water is predicted to only rise a few more inches from what you see in the photos, and the floodwalls and levees in Grand Forks still have plenty of room to spare in letting the water push higher. East Grand Forks is in a bit of a worse situation, since its floodwalls are shorter than the ones in Grand Forks. Still, that city should also be secure during this flood.
