Thank you for the "good news"! Any news on the Gunflint Lodge?! We are a group from Appleton, WI that comes up annually and are heartbroken over what has been lost thus far. Sending MANY prayers & thoughts your way for a quick control of this thing and avoidance of future structure loss. Thankfully no lives have been lost and no major injuries. We also feel for the critters. Thank you for the updates for those of us anxiously watching from afar.

At the meeting this morning in Grand Marais, the Cook County Sheriff lifted the Mandatory Evacution north of the Poplar Lake fire hall. That road block has been moved north to County Road 58, at the north end of Poplar Lake.

The Advisory Evacution from Swamper Lake to the Poplar Lake fire hall was also lifted.

9 structures have been lost on the Canadian side of Gunflint Lake. There are also Mandatory and Advisory Evacuation along the border in Canada.

Terry Brickman and Family

We are praying that your family is safe. I know Andy and Sue will be doing everything they can for their neighbours and Tuscarora Lodge.

We hope to see you in mid June to enjoy the wonders of the boundary Waters.

Response to quiltparalegal:
I read in a cook county newspaper that Seagull lost Sag cabins. It was an interview with Debbie. I believe her main Seagull Lake stuff was salvaged with the help of sprinklers. I, too, have worked a few summers for Debbie. In August, 2000, my husband and I married at the High Cliffs of Gunflint Lake and took a honeymoon canoe ride at Seagull outfitters - with our wedding attire on and Debbie's older dog, Mocha. I wish everyone on the Gunflint my very best. The more memories one has, the more tears one sheds!!!!!
