The pelicans have moved back to the sandbar/island across from our house. The water has started to recede from it’s high levels of a week ago. Our city still is hosting the displaced community of Cumberland House – about 1000 have been here for the last few weeks. But I heard from Leo that the river has crested up there and is also beginning to recede.
Now on to the next emergency – fires. Weird how some areas will be flooding when just a few hundred kms away the danger of forest fire threatens some other community. We had a big thunderstorm north of here last week and the lightning ignited several fires. The smoke from them will often force evacuations even if the fire itself doesn’t threaten the community.
I think the cold weather is more predictable for us. We can deal with snow and 40 below. That kind of weather forces us into our homes not out of them.
