My location is next to the salt water, which has not been a problem with the flooding. I'm loosing power for two hours, almost daily now. Today I think it is the strong winds creating the problems.
The backup generator has not worked since the ice storm & with the $283 labour bill from the Moncton company, to say ' Don't know what the problem is but here's your labour bill.' Bill's going to fix it next time in a couple of weeks. Grrrr, I don't like it when you don't get what you paid for!
That is such a small problem to what people are experiencing now with all the melting snow, raining, & swelling river.
Remember all the snow that was here last week? Have a look now!!
At the last EBH Garden Club meeting someone told me that they saved toilet paper rolls, cut them in half & snipped the bottom to create a closer, another told me how they used a clamshell container for a mini hothouse. So I combined the two & came up with this for the seedlings.
In less than 10 weeks he will be twenty years old!
Maybe they were yams?
The fast thaw didn't help with the St John River & terrible flooding that's happening.
Scary news when watching CTV Atlantic news & all the coverage of the flooding.
When I lived in London ON, I attended the SOHO meetings that were taking place for the growth of several very high apartment buildings, 2 at 27 storey's tall. Well, the promenade that was to be constructed was done by the company that did the Halifax Warf, which had to be 4 meters higher than planned due to the high waters rising with the global change. The Thames River was in front of the apartment builds & it too had to be planned to be made tall & strong due to rising water.
I had a great interest in what was happening as I lived on the other side of the Thames River in a century home that would look at all these modern highrises.
Stephanie & Donny, our eldest son, are now stewards of that home & it will be them watching the waters rise with the apartment building going tall too. Lucky for them they're high on a hill & have the bike path located on the floodplain when the banks overflow & in past years I've seen them spill right into the park.
The times are changing & we must change & adapt with them to survive.
My thoughts & prayers go out to those that are displaced right now & I hope a safe summer for all.
Thank you for stopping by for a visit. I am safe where I live in New Brunswick, I am one of the lucky ones for now. I hope you are safe & dry wherever you are. I know there is flooding going on in several provinces right now. This too will pass...sooner than later I'm hoping.
