Gord Snarr Farm flooding April 13, 2009

Looking from our dike slightly NW across Hwy 75 to the neighbors yard. Their access road (6E) went under water last night and they are forced to park their vehicles on Hwy 75.

Looking directly west from yard dike towards Hwy 75. Shows the mass of water on the north (right hand) side of road that is backing up through a coulee on the north side of the yard. Oat straw bales here are ruined because they are still frozen down and now flooding.

Looking south from the yard dike towards Morris and shows the mass of water Road 27N is holding back.

Shows water collecting inside north west side of dike waiting to flow around the north and eventually to the east side and pumped out.
