    Bumping this to the top again....
    on light duty due to illness; please contact my assistants for forum issues. They are Siu Blue Wind, or CbadRider or the other 3 star folk. I am currently at home recovering from a couple of strokes. I am making good progress, happily.

    No problems here. Rochester only ended up with a bunch of flooded basements. West of here, it's a disaster! I believe Rochester only ended up with 10-12 inches or rain, where the town just 60 miles west of us ended up with 17... OUCH!

    We were actually at our camper along the Mississippi river all weekend. It takes a while for the water to raise the Mississippi so we didn't realize how bad it was untill we went home on Sunday.

    Here's a link to dozens of pictures of the flooding.

    Good. I'm glad you're unscathed. Now we need GregCavi to check in.

    I love that area down there, and used to scour rushcreekrealty.com to look at cabins. No one remembers the place flooding out like that ever*.

    I'm right in the thick of it. My parents had to stay the night at my place on Saturday cause they couldn't get to their house. All the creeks turned into rivers, mudslides covered the roads, and trees we're laying everywhere. Otherwise, we're all doing ok. Its gonna be a few weeks before things get back to somewhat normal.

    I'm sorry B Piddy! I didn't know you were one of the Northern folk! I'm glad you're OK. Clean-up is going to be a total mess.
