This is a aerial view of the St. Croix River that runs between Minnesota and Wisconsin. At the time this photo was taken the Stillwater Bridge was closed and the lift is in the up position. The river was just a few inches below the lowest portion of the bridge. The white plastic covers a dike made up of thousands of sandbags that protect the city when the water rises.
