(PHOTOS) Fridley Teacher on Floods in Hometown Duluth: 'Unbelievable, Crazy'
"Nothing like it before," says FHS science teacher Callie Bush, who grew up in Duluth-Superior.
I grew up in Duluth, family still there. Luckily they are ok. This is unbelievable. Nothing like it before, even Halloween '91
Bush added by email:
Usually when there is flooding in Duluth it is near the lake and lower-lying lying areas. Rarely do you see a lot of flooding "on the hill." This is crazy stuff!
Update: Shakopee Patch editor Lisa Baumann lived for five years in Duluth and Cloquet, where she worked as a newspaper editor and reporter, and her husband is from Duluth. She says in a personal post at Shakopee Patch that the news of the flooding there has transported her mentally back to northern Minnesota.

Update II: Fridley Mayor Scott Lund said by email Thursday that he was going to be at a League of Minnesota Cities gathering in Duluth today but the northern Minnesota flooding changed that:
Because of the flooding I was advised not to attempt to get into Duluth yesterday as I had planned to attend the annual conference.
