Troubled Times, They Have Come!

A line of storms looms over Duluth's bay.
Duluth, MN is in a spot of trouble right now. We have been hit with over 9" of rain in 24 hours. The ground can't hold it anymore. Therefore, the water and Mother Nature are now kicking our ASS!

Our thoughts go out to the homes and businesses that are damaged and the lives that are turned upside down right now.

Hang in there, the sun will come back. I know it!

A culvert under the driveway where I work. No kids allowed in the swimming hole today.

A little creek I cross on my commute to work every day.

Same creek pictured above. Merritt Creek.

A big climb/descent on my commute to and from work.

Same road as pic above. I'd say it's ruined.

At this point I figured out why I had to go past a road closed sign.
The previous pics were what I saw when I rounded this corner. Yikes!

A close up of the water just running through the woods. This isn't a stream or creek, just water!

Amy standing over Merritt Creek which eventually flows to my place of work.
Typically, this is a small stream.
