I saw several flood's at the Johnson farm in the
late 1930's. Roy Johnson was my uncle,but know
the farm is being run by my cousin Ted Johnson.
If anyone has taken pic's of the flooding around
Bean Lake or around general area, I sure would like
to have any sent to my email address.

who have been suffering though all this flooding.
