As this Sunday wore on, the problems continued to mount as high temperatures caused what was left of the snow in the hills to continue a rapid melt.
Foxholm was the bullseye for river flooding through the day.
The Des Lacs River shot past the earlier crest projection of 17 feet by mid-morning.
And by late afternoon, the river was up to 19.32 feet - the 5th highest level ever recorded at Foxholm and within about one foot of the 2011 crest.
The quick rise forced some quick action by people living along the banks of the normally-tiny river.
They brought in sand and did some high-speed dike making.

Meanwhile, scientists from the US Geological Survey were busy checking the exact flow and height of the Des Lacs at Foxholm.
They do it by sending a motorized sensor across the river.
Hydrologist Brent Hanson says it's important to get actual measurements of the river flow to confirm what the automated equipment is reporting.

The measurements taken by the USGS showed a flow rate of about 24-hundred CFS at Foxholm.
And since that time, the river has dropped slightly.
The National Weather Service estimates the river has crested at Foxholm.
We'll see all of the latest crest predictions in a moment.
