Fargo Flood: 03.26.09 in the AM

I went out again this morning to photograph photos of the Fargo flood fight. I plan to go out again after I post his blog, so expect more photographs later.

Volunteers at Nemzek Field House at MSUM were helping with registration and food distribution this morning.

Britta, I love the blog. I actually got lost in it for about 10 minutes. Awesome stuff on the flood and everything else. Do you have any photos of Jack Williams Stadium, the baseball field by 12th Ave. North? It always floods no matter what but I haven't seen anything on it yet and was just curious as to how high it is. Take care and stay dry.
