MPR wants your flood memories

Allison Herrera of Minnesota Public Radio's Public Insight Network has asked me to post a request for you - the readers of this blog and the residents of the Grand Forks/East Grand Forks community - to share your memories of the 1997 flood and how it changed you.

According to Herrera, "Minnesota Public Radio wants to know what you remember about the great flood of 1997. We're seeking people's personal accounts of the disaster. We're doing a piece on April 18th on the mid-morning show that involves the people who were actually there."

To share your memories (MPR is looking for both text and images), simply click here and fill out a simple form.

I can tell you right now that it was the best thing that ever happened to downtown GF, but the worst thing to happen to everyone in GF.

Sure, everybody lost priceless items in the flood. Things that can't be replaced, but in retrospect, we all just lost things. Noone got killed, which is absolutely remarkable.

You should start a "floodisms" thread.

"What's your control number?"
