What a Storm!

I was supposed to be up in Duluth, MN for a League of Minnesota Cities conference on June 20th, but they received such a huge rainstorm, there was flooding, road closure, and the city all but shut down. Animals got loose from the zoo and were found all over the city! They received over 9 inches of rain in a matter of hours, and roads were washed away.

It's hard to see, but because so much sediment ran off from the hills, the water, including Lake Superior, turned red!

The next day, we were able to go up and it was as if nothing happened. Fortunately, the conference went on without a hitch and my stay at Canal Park Lodge was fun. I'd recommend staying there!
