The Red's First Crest

The ice on the Red River, which was a smooth, flat sheet this morning, 'popped' at some point during the day leaving huge jagged pieces of ice.
The water is approaching the dikes under the Dunkirk bridge, but has already dropped about 2" from earlier today. The folks on Kingston Crescent received evacuation notices this evening but are optimistic, given the already slightly lower river, that they won't have to go anywhere. And I am extremely curious about what these two fellows, whom we saw on the Elm Park Bridge wearing flotation devices, were expecting.
