as many BCers know, the Fraser River is currently begining flooding in various part of BC. we are expected to get hti by the high waters this ocming weekend-no one knows how bad the flooding will be.
the last major flood to hit this area was in 1948 and we are being told that this will be worse. on the good side, there are now dykes lining the river that weren't there in 1948 and the dykes have all be raise and re-inforced in the past few months.
tomorrow Jim and i are getting sandbags as a percaution. honestly, i was thinking it was all media hype but after taking our daily drive to the river this evening(the busiest road in all of Chilliwack lol!!) i'm not so sure. the river was about 2ft lower than the road tonight and we are to get rain right through monday. it's time to batten down and hang on
