To all those who worked, helped, and prayed for Fargo and the communities to the North and South of us, thank you so much. I can't put to words the amount of appreciation that is coming your way.

The emotional roller coster we've been on is unbelievable. The effort has been enormous and although we've had some significant and terrible losses (e.g., Oak Grove), we've done really well to hold our own so far. We're far from done, but things are finally turning the right direction.

I've learned a lot about people through this whole thing. The effort that perfect strangers have put in has been incredible. The Hesco (modular dike material) behind my brother's house was failing on Thurs and we had to build a secondary dike- the plan was for a 15' wide, six feet high, and 80 yards long sandbag dike behind the primary Hesco dike. Before we knew it, there were 250 people (some from all over MN, ND, and he Midwest) in his yard filling spots in eight lines throwing bag after bag. In three hours the whole crew put that sucker together- it was absolutely a monumental task that amazed me. It was one of dozens and dozens of examples I've seen through this mess that has positively restored my faith in people and humanity.

Thank you to all of the National Guard, police, fire fighteers, Coast Guard, and volunteers for this incredible and awe-inspiring effort.

Scott, Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you affected by this force of mother nature. We cant even imagine the struggle emotionally... Bob

So sad knowing what people are going through up there, but I am so relieved to know that it's not another Katrina type incident where no action is being taken immediately.

I told everyone about a month and a half ago that when/if the Red River floods this year I was going to go up and help. But being 21 and living in Southern Minnesota has restricted me from driving up to help. I cannot miss work and cannot afford the trip. I am glad to hear though that there is great work going on up there.

    • Thought this was a good pod cast   http://podcasts.joerogan.net/podcasts/doug-duren-bryan-richards
    • who has time for that? haha here is some stuff from the same biologist https://www.usgs.gov/staff-profiles/bryan-richards?qt-staff_profile_science_products=3#qt-staff_profile_science_products    
    • Holy craap!  There is pee all over the woods, the DNR needs to stop this before all the Deer and we die!  😨
    • Rank is the order on which you draw for your prefered spot. #1 chooses first. #2 chooses second, etc.   I was drawn as the #1 alternate for the MN DNR hunt, Hwy 61 & Warner Rd in St Paul.  This is a new one for me.
    • The article in the Strib.     www.startribune.com/louisiana-to-hunters-deer-urine-lures-might-spread-disease/490173741/   Why we are still allowing deer urine to be shipped and sold is beyond me.    That Joe Rogan podcast was very interesting and informative.   Well worth the time.  
    • If you are one of the lucky ones who drew a moose permit and ready for Alaska Moose Hunting. These tips and basic hunting guidelines helps you to successful harvest:   Hunt for moose near food sources and water. Use rifle rather than  arrow, bowstring Wear good quality and waterproof boots Moose also have great hearing so wearing clothes that  does not make any noise. Hunt during  August, September. This is best season  for Moose hunting   Hope these tips helpful for you. Contact us if you’re thinking about going on a moose hunt.
    • Might just have to make a little extra for breakfast this weekend and use a little self-control and not eat it for a mid morning snack.
    • Trailcampro.com is a good resource to read their reviews and they have a good warranty. Personal.... I don’t buy a trail cams over $120.         The best time to buy is Black Friday or at the end of the season.  I mostly use stealth cam and moutry. Hope this helps. 
    • Anybody draw? I drew a primary and am pretty excited. This is my first year with the program so wasn’t sure what to expect. What does the rank mean? 
    • Google can probably conjur up some text for the video impared.
