The flooding has begun. They are evacuating homes up in the Terrace area and areas in Prince George are on alert. I'm checking the CBC site regularly:
"As of 3am Tuesday, the river had risen to a level of 5.2 metres on the Mission gague. By the weekend, that's expected to hit at least seven metres."
Dave and Roger put out some extra lines today. One of the floats broke loose yesterday and they took care of that this morning as Greig couldn't do it as he was in school today for his Bridge Watchman's ticket.
Apparently there is a big pile of debris coming down the river at us. We're on red alert to combat all this stuff. I hope they can get a boomstick out into place in front of the Bowie and the Lightship and that we can process the pile of crap that is already there. Oh and more rain is in the forecast.
If it floods on the island, and we expect that it will, we'll have to park our cars on the other side of the river.
