Today a sort of news image of a ten block area here in Courtenay B.C. We take it in stride as this is a small area. There are business owners who suffer but no homes here. There may be damage to our rec center and public pool and park. At the far end is the 5th street bridge. [ out of sight ] and this is why it is now closed to traffic.

I seldom use this little Fuji sl 280 almost toy P&S. Looking at the EXIF for the first time, it seems to be more clever than I in working with cloudy late light. TG

We get flooding like this now and then-- only hay fields flood, so it becomes a party, sort of

Note the fire engine-- which will be an excellent mode of closing a street or road if necessary! Good reportage!

Lot of flooding here in the UK last year Tony. Cost millions, some people haven't moved back into their homes, even after a year.

Sorry for 11 households who have now been flooded. It was a King tide and strong winds overnight that caused the problem to worsen. Most of the 40 or so businesses do not have basements in this area known for the odd flood every five to ten years. They still suffer considerable damage and business losses however. Thank you for thumbs up. TG
