Monday. Why does it seem like Mondays always behave like a Monday?
MPR’s Tim Nelson was patrolling the St. Paul waterfront today when he saw someone’s summer being ruined.
“This house boat was bobbing down the Mississippi in downtown St. Paul between the ice floes about a 7 AM. Firefighters watched until the motor vessel Mary J fetched a crane to get the boat out of the river. Police said the boat appeared to be unoccupied.” –Tim Nelson
