State of Emergency Flooding

NORTH COWICHAN, B.C.: NOVEMBER 20, 2009 The mid-Vancouver Island municipalities of Duncan and North Cowichan have declared a state of emergency and issued evacuation orders due to extensive flooding that began early in the morning on Nov. 20., 2009. Several streets and fields are underwater, such as this area near Lakes and Beverly roads.



This was in the Times Colonist this morning.... and I thought my driveway was bad! I am now considering myself lucky that a wet driveway is all I have to deal with. At least my little house is above ground, and won't flood.
I tried to go into town today, and 2 out of the 3 exits from my farm were closed due to flooding. I picked up some supplies, so when we get more RAIN, (tonight), I should be ok for a while... at least I won't starve to death. One MAJOR advantage to living on a farm- there is almost always something around you can eat!
