Happy Canada Day!
We had a brutal storm come through, with what seemed like a 45 minute hard downpour and continuous rain after that for much of the afternoon. There is flooding everywhere and a state of emergency has been declared. Residents are not to use water unless necessary. Pretty crazy stuff considering this wasn't even forecast (still calling for 5-10mm rain), HA!
Here are some pics:
A field that has seen pooling water only twice in the last 16 years.
Main road to the westside backed up.
Under the bridge
On top of the bridge and the reason the road is backed up. Look at the height of the water on the jersey barriers to the right.
A brave soul. He only tried it after we egged him on.
At least he brought the kitchen sink with him.
At this point, I realized walking around in the sewage infested waters was not a good idea any longer.
