Gangway relief work party at Heron Lake

A nice problem to have... Heron Lake rose a bit more than expected this summer, thanks in part to recent rainstorms. The shoreware end of the marina gangway was more than half a foot underwater at the beginning of the weekend, so the on-duty dockmasters rigged a temporary gangway, foreground, until a crane could be called on Saturday to shift the gangway.

Mobile crane. The crane wasn't powerful enough to pick up the entire gangway with the crane's boom extended, and was only able to move the end of the gangway about twenty feet. However, that may well be enough to accommodate remaining increases in the lake level.
