Ann, I am a lucky woman. I am loved, no one could ask more more. I see stars in the black sky, maybe our incredible rain storms have gone by the wayside, I can only hope. We have been experiencing extremely high rainfalls and heavy. My daughter told me that on the news there is fear in the Lower Mainland of flooding in the valley. There was a severe flood I believe it was around 1947 and the floodplains of Mission area were extremely flooded. They have been working very hard on diking stuff, sandbag work, etc. to prepare for this possibility. They anticipate that this may be a year of flood out there, comparable to that so many years ago. I hope it does not come to pass. It would be horrific.
We live about 6 km from the Fraser River. We are high though and there is no fear of flood near my home. I am grateful for that. I may have to bring my sister's horses to my home if the flood warning comes into effect. I have the acreage and barns that could accommodate her. She lives on the floodplain and it is very worrisome. (now I know why we never took down the barns that housed my daughters and spouses horses). I never thought we would have horses here again, but then I guess one never knows. Best of the great day. Cindi
