  1. “And I wonder, still I wonder, who will stop the rain.”
    I was expecting the government would announce they were going to do something about the rain. I thought they could do anything – maybe Jim Watson can get on this.

    But seriously, my sympathies are with those being put out of their homes in Gatineau and along the Ottawa and Rideau Rivers. Hopefully, this will generate a better system of protection since this is going to get worse, not better, as weather systems change. Kudos to the city staff and volunteers who’ve come out to fill sandbags and provide supports to those who need it.

  2. Flooding is not a laughing matter. It affects people, sometimes, with great losses.

    But, sometimes civilization is its own worse enemy. We build on flood plains and wonder why we got wet when the water rose. We cover the ground with pavement and wonder why the water didn’t get absorbed into the ground. We build basements and wonder why the sewer backed-up into the house.

    We are, in general, a not too bright of a species.
