Flood Season

03May08

And so the mighty Saint John river unleashes its winterborne wrath upon a half-suspecting valley. Fredericton has water in the streets, but we’re not exactly talking about a massive disaster. Downriver? Not so lucky. I have no pictures, because the area is closed and, well, flooded, but I would think quite a few homes have been ruined judging by the evening news. Hell, the national news! Yes, yes. Every so often a natural disaster makes the Maritimes newsworthy for a few days and we’re really reaping the benefits: Stevie Harper showed up, smirking and gladhanding around with volunteers, but making no promises of a federal bailout. Too soon to discuss numbers, of course — probably because the Conservatives were already polling well in effected areas. But enough political horseshit. Here’s some pictures!

By yours truly:

Duck, duck, bench

Teri’s:

My favorite:
