Red Rocks

Here are come pictures I took in Minot after the floodwaters receded.

This is the house that I grew up in, from age 4 until I graduated from college. Thankfully, my Mom sold it about a year and a half ago and moved up onto the hill but the new owner's didn't get so lucky.

This is the view looking in the living room windows towards the kitchen.

This is the view of the dining room and kitchen from inside the garage.

I can't begin to tell you how disheartening it was to see Latimer's and Fredrickson's and Aberle's and Wald's and Schmidt's all ruined. The piles of rotting sheetrock and wood and garbage reek, all the grass and many of the trees are dead, and it is a ghost town except for the few trying to clean up.
