Water in Fargo now at 41 feet & Cresting - 03/27/09 04:13 PM
See photos of the sandbagging efforts and view the Fargo/Moorhead flood area Despite everyone's best efforts to keep up with the rising waters, in some areas there is already dike failure and subsequent flooding. The volunteers are growing weary but fresh replacements are still coming in. With the evacuations , there will be less time spend on rescue efforts as there will be less to rescue. There will always be those who stay in their homes risking their lives and those of their rescuers. No one knows exactly how long the waters will keep rising and how long the crest will (15 comments)
The Red River has reached its highest stage in 112 years. Yesterday many buses went out from Brainerd/ Baxter MN from our Greater Lakes Association of REALTORS parking lot and from many area churches filled with volunteers. Their main goal was to fill and place as many sandbags as humanly possible to hold back the waters. Tired and wet, they came home late last evening as these communities began to call for evacualtions. Fargo is now under mandatory evacuation and Moorhead (lenient MN style) evacuation is highly recommended. The sewer systems are failing and drinkable water is a problem. Rescues (5 comments)

Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for (11 comments)
WHITE ON WHITE ON WHITE - 03/10/09 06:32 PM
OK, so we are in the middle of another Minnesota snowstorm and I have white on my brain, Anyhu - here I go. A monochromatic background needs some skillful help to not be perceived as bland. Various shades of white with loads of textures will keep it interesting. Texture will add a dimension to an otherwise flat color scheme - now you see depth and definition. Keeping it still neutral - you can bring in organic materials from the natural world outside , which is quite plentiful here in Northern Minnesota and for the most part free. Some pieces of (20 comments)
Tornadoes - Been There, Done That - 03/02/09 10:19 PM
June of 2001, twin twister sisters hit our home, horse stable and roofing business. Life is still in the "picking up the pieces" stage but no human lives were lost. Because I know from experience how quickly and how efficiently tornadoes can kill and destroy everything in its path I will continue posting about our experience to get the information out. Tornadoes are nature’s most violent storms. Spawned from powerful thunderstorms, tornadoes can cause fatalities and devastate a neighborhood in seconds. A tornado appears as a rotating, funnel-shaped cloud that extends from a thunderstorm to the ground with whirling winds that (15 comments)
As we 'round the bend in the school year and start chugging towards the Spring finish line, we know that there will be obstacles ahead that have to be seriously considered now - FINAL EXAMS Do you totally freak out on test day or are you a last minute crammer? How has that been working for you so far? Do you want less stress, higher grades and more return for your time and effort?
