What a beautiful Saturday, the snow is melting and the fields are starting to see water.
I added a couple 8-foot markers. One is nailed to the east fence and the other is nailed to an oak tree near the house. It doesn’t measure the river level, just how much of the backyard is underwater.
I heard on one of the local radio stations that the river may rise as much as 5-feet a day next week. Hopefully these markers will help follow the river’s rise.
The Trollwood bridge is now closed. The water is right up next to the road, will more than likely be flooded over Sunday. With University Avenue closed north of the airport and now Broadway closed, 10th Street is going to be busy come Monday morning.
Neighbor’s field underwater on 80th Avenue in north Moorhead.
Muskrat sighting! Oh wait, it’s a Murphy Muskrat.
