Flood of 2007

Saturday night through Sunday morning August 18th & 19th, our area of SE MN suffered a significant disaster. We measured over 12-inches of rain here on the farm in Witoka! This picture of the road washed out is just down the hill from us.

Here’s a video report of the scene from wcco.com. This clip has Grandma Aldinger being interviewed about the neighbor couple that died driving into the chasm Sunday morning.

We are very thankful to be safe up here on the top of the ridge. Many of the valley areas around us have been devastated.

wcco.com has posted a slideshow of damage in the surrounding area. Coleen and the kids were interviewed by the Rochester Post-Bulletin, but the online article seems to have been pulled.
