Fredericton Flood Redux?

The sump pump has been busy in the Doherty house in Fredericton (Nashwaaksis).

We took turns, including shifts last night, managing the water flow in the basement which has been receiving water the past week. The police dropped off Emergency Measures Organization flood planning information.

This evening I took a brief walk around the end of our street closest to the Saint John River and on the North Riverfront Trail near our home. The water has started to come up over the trail and over the back yard of a neighbor's yard a couple of houses down across the street. Hopefully Fredericton is not in for another flood like last year. There has been a lot of snow fall this winter and the CBC reports there have been ice jams up river on the Saint John, the Nashwaak and some other New Brunswick Rivers.

Time will tell.

Oh man I know what you are going through. We are keeping a close eye here in Maugerville, and hoping it is not like last year. Our sump pump is at the ready.
How is Conor managing with the extra activities and change in routines??
Justin did well last year but got very nervous whe nhe saw the water in the basement and his toys and sports gear piled up outside. You know a change in the place where his things are supposed to be.
