I guess we have to hope we don't get strong spring storms and rain like we usually get. If the flood planners don't remember it was rain that caused the 2011 flood more than the snow did. I got nothing from the information that looks like any improvements have been made. Same old song and dance. Lord please have Mercy on us.

When the city has no problem raising property taxes when they pledged, strike that, LIED not to do so when they wanted the one-cent city sales tax so bad they could taste it and then got it, then they deserve to be slapped by Mother Nature, the harsh mistress that she is.

If it floods in Minot, city hall should be the only place that gets flooded, Mother Nature will spare the rest of the town. It's not nice to fool Mother Nature and she doesn't like it when people are violated and mistreated by those who should know better.

I hope the city officials all lose a lot of sleep.

I find it somewhat 'curious' that Canada can drop their levels well below the agreed level while the Corps refuses to drop down two more feet. Col. Bergman said he could go no further because he couldn't guarantee that the****could be refilled by June lst as per management plan. I think that management plan needs further review and changes to accomodate those of us downstream during the wet years.

"Conditions are vastly different from 2011".....So which conditions are vastly different? Is the water different? Is the season different? No. I don't believe so. The same conditions are upon us...including the city/state/federal gov't ability to do nothing and get it done...uhh...never.
