Ed, the town is Hibbing, MN up the road... That makes him a Ranger... Be gentle to your friend... his whole family is under tremondus stress right now... I live 23 miles away from Duluth... 35 miles north of me the city of Floodwood is also under water and 35 miles south Moose lake is under water. Everything is underwater I just posted a pic of my house... the river is not receding very fast, I can't even get near my house.. No ones ever seen this before
Tom, talked to my boss who is from Duluth. His folks (Vecchi is their last name) still live there. Their original homeplace and where he grew up is on London road on the lake. Steve's dad (my boss) had a large architectural firm there in Duluth. Originally from Hibbie (sp?). He had other siblings there as well.
Well the water is flowing over the dam at about 25000 feet per second and the sun is out, it's a new day, I'm thinking that has to be worth a positive outlook. No roads open yet.... Maybe I can get to the house tomorrow if it doesn't rain
