Day 8, Monday, March 30th No picture for today, the water I hear is a few inches higher than yesterday. warmer weather has stated the melting process again, but a new cold front is moving in this evening, the same system that dropped 16" on Bismarck in the last 24 hours. fargo is expecting 12", we are expecting about 8". this means that the water is going to stay high for a very long time. several smaller communities from up to the Canadian border down towards fargo are expecting more flooding.
I think that it is part of human nature to want to see how bad things can get. I of course am worried about my friends and community in both grand forks and fargo. but, even as a grand forks resident, there is a part of me that was a little let down yesterday when the river had not rose significantly since the previous day; I mean, I want to see a record, right? if you have come back to this thread a second time, is there a part of you that is waiting for the picture of just the tip of the flood marker to be left above the water?
thanks for all the responses so far. It means a lot to me that other people are seeing my pictures, even if this series isn't really going for the artistic side of photography.
I will post a new picture tomorrow.
