I stopped by the Ford Lock and Dam right after another storm moved through the area, hoping to use the dramatic clouds as the backdrop for the rushing waterfall.
I noticed that the locks were both closed, I have not been to this dam recently, but I was surprised to see them both closed. The photo of the St. Anthony Falls Lock and Dam I posted from yesterday shows the lock open with water rushing through it. I eventually wondered to St. Anthony again tonight and noticed that the lock was closed as well. This is a good sign for anyone effected by the recent flooding because it means that the river is returning to its normal volume.
