A word to the wise in the Cities: Stay out of the Minnesota River, and stay out of the Mississippi down stream of the Minnesota ! Once again the Minnesota River has sewage treatment ponds at Le Seuer! I don't know why this is allowed to happen on a regular basis, but driving by today it is clear that the river is freely flowing through at least two of the three ponds. I've always wondered why we don't hear about this and the fines the city of Le Seuer gets hit with.

None of those cities look like Fargo I guess you should up and move the whole city. Who would be build right next to a river.

kato58- it's Le Sueur not Le Seuer. I'm not even sure these ponds are used anymore

I hope the snow lovers enjoy it, but great old Minne will be getting another 6 to 8 inches of snow by Sunday according to the National Weather Service. We should have summer by August 15th!

Don't believe everything you hear from the NWS. Sunday is 4 days and their forecast will probably change 6 times by then.

When it comes to flooding in the Twin Cities, why doesn't the story detail where all this water is coming from. Why doesn't detail the unmelted snow pack and ice? Why does it overlay where the majority of the snow actually fell. Maybe a map would be nice. The heaviest snow fall is in and adjacent to the Minnesota River and its tributaries. When you start hearing about flooding in Granit Falls you are about 3 weeks from the crest in Saint Paul. Right now the Cottonwood River is over its banks in New Ulm, waiting to go down River to Mankato. The Rush, and High Island Waterhed are over the bank into fields, woodlands, and gravel roads which are closed. This is the report from the Southwest. I cannnot believe anyone has reported along the Mississippi. Of course the Crow was flooding Delano. But its only one tributary of the Mississippi. The reporting is Twin Cities centered with little idea of what is to come.
