Here are a few pictures of the 09 flood. The pictures are from a few days before the crest.
|this is the Red River from the Main St bridge.|
|Trying to get to Moorhead from Fargo was a nightmare. This was the interstate and the ONLY road with a bridge open. Traffic was at a standstill most of the day|
|Sandbagging at my friends parents house.|
|That group of trees is what surrounds the barn. To the right was all water from melted snow on the fields and overland flooding. It was sucky.|
The company I work for has a few large buildings that they rent out to the city of Moorhead to store their sandbags after they are filled. I think I overheard them say that there are 400,000 sand bags being stored there. We went yesterday to have a look. It’s unbelievable to see all of them. Here are a few pictures from the farm.
|This is a building connected to thes shop it's 80x300 ft and filled up with rollaways.|
|The ladder I climbed up to take a look. I think it was a 6 foot ladder.|
|This building is 100x200 ft and filled from one side to the other. I walked across all the sand bags to get here.|
So heres to hoping that we don’t flood as badly as we did in 09!
