As I pray for my friends in the Red River Valley, I’m remembering the 1997 Fargo Flood. I was living in Moorhead then. After 116″ of snow, we knew what was coming . . . and had a few weeks to prepare. This year they didn’t have as much snow . . . but apparently the ground was saturated from rains last fall . . .
Here are some pictures from 1997. First the snow piles, then the melting . . .
Above and below are pictures of one of the bridges connecting Moorhead & Fargo
Under other conditions, you can drive (or bike) under this bridge.
