The State of Minnesota in general has been experiencing some flooding lately, due to heavy rains. Since there are a lot of rivers and towns on rivers, when they overflow, it does some localized damage, and when that is happening all over the place it does some damage. We expect some river flooding in spring but it is abnormal this late in the summer.
One community that we knew was affected by the flooding was Stillwater, a town on the St. Croix River across from Wisconsin. I posted up a picture of the historic Lift Bridge at Stillwater yesterday, which was closed due to high waters. We went to see the flooding and take some pictures on June 28th, here are the best ones.
