On the way to Easter Sunday worship service in the Northland.
Most of Grey’s Creek is covered or hidden. This is Grey’s Creek just below Skyline Parkway, white snow covers what used to be a lot for a house. My husband and I looked at the house when it was for sale in 2010. We thought it would be fun to have a creek in our back yard. Luckily we didn’t purchase the house. In 2012 Duluth received torrential rains and flooded and the house was damaged. This house was demolished a few months ago. Above Skyline neighbors filled the creek in with rock and debris (with city permission) “because they were paying taxes on a ravine.” Once it was filled a lawn was grown over it. That was about 50 years ago. You may recall a blue car that fell in a giant pothole during the torrential rain. It wasn’t really a pothole it was Grey’s Creek trying to reclaim herself. See the watershed of Grey’s Creek here. See the poor creek here. See the car in the pothole here.
