I saw a guy wading hip deep across the floodwaters at the footbridge below the Hwy 19 Lyman Lakes dam yesterday afternoon. Alas, I didn’t get there in time to take his photo. The ‘lake’ is covering most of Laird Field.
For a comparison of this year’s high water on the Cannon River, see the June 2004 floodwaters album, the large slideshow, or this small slideshow:
Hey Griff –
There’s water on the land side of the flood wall west of the pedestrian bridge. The river looks a foot short of the wall under that wsame bridge, but clearly the water has gotten through.
Down near the Second Street bridge, it’s completely flooded…
…and it’s raining.
So, I guess I’m suggesting that it’s too early to shut down your “contest”.
You’re right, Ross. I took some photos at 6 pm this evening and I was surprised to see how much the river was up since yesterday. There’s rain hovering to our south at 8 pm tonight so maybe….
Some really nice pictures Griff.
I posted a few photos to Facebook and Twitter about the flooding. I also took a video of a log stuck at the base of the dam bouncing around. Here are the links.

I retweeted this KYMN tweet that quotes Chief Taylor: “Cannon River appears to have crested, for now”
