Brainerd, MN: High Winds Topple Babe the Blue Ox!

It's been a couple of years since I've been up to Brainerd, MN. It seems that they experienced high winds yesterday. It was strong enough that this 6,000 pound statue of Babe the Blue Ox was blown on its side!! Babe the Blue Ox is one of the highlights at Paul Bunyan Land.

But fear not! Babe the Blue Ox is back on his feet (if "a little dinged up") as of three hours ago and the amusement park is open for business!

Paul Bunyan Land reports that there has been some wind damage to some of their trees and to one of their museums, but their amusement park rides are all safe and in good shape!
