The Bog Is Gone!

Volunteers won what has become known as the battle with the bog on Sunday, working in hot, humid conditions, with chainsaws and power boats to dismember it. The bog on North Long Lake, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources, was about 255,000 square feet in diameter and estimated to weigh 4,000 tons… that’s 8 million pounds. It floated around the bay as the wind shifted—damaging property in the process. The bog removal has been in the works for months.
