BRIDGE OVER TROUBLED WATERS — The deluge of rain from last Wednesday evening’s and Thursday morning’s thunderstorms caused the Tiffany Creek behind the Boyceville High School/MIddle School to overflow its banks and create a temporary lake. Several youth and some adults seemed to enjoy the flooding they swam in it as temperature rose into the 90s by late afternoon May 12. In the photo above, kids stood on the pedestrian bridge to crosses over the creek but was nearly swallowed up by the raising flood waters. —photo by Shawn DeWitt
