If you watched the news last month you are probably aware that Duluth had a pretty major flood. As a resident of this fine city, it never crossed my mind that flooding was even a possibility. Ummm, we live on a hill… Unfortunately my preconceived or naive ideas about Duluth being flood-proof were wrong. On the bright side, no one was seriously injured. I for one have been amazed by the kindness of strangers, the quick action by city officials, and the resilient community (okay, and the amazing adventure of Feisty the seal). The photos of our earthquake-like road damage are shocking, but the majority of our roads are untouched. Canal Park in general got by unscathed and Canal Park Lodge didn’t have any damage at all. So, to quote our mayor, “Duluth is open for business”! Come visit, see the sights, catch a show, watch a big ocean liner come in, etc. However, this is a rare time to visit if you want to gawk at any of the road damage in person, as it is being fixed rather quickly. We won’t judge. We were out there snapping photos and gabbing about it on Facebook too.
