Out fishing with Annie on his lap, a cigar in one hand and a ginger ale in the other, watching the sunset.

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.
