    Fire damage likely weakened some of the hillsides and caused more landslides.

    My in-laws are currently trapped up at Manning Park - it was raining up there, but temps dropped overnight so it's currently dumping snow. Highway 3 apparently had a debris field over the road near the old Hope Slide. That one should be cleared up in a week or two I would think, but it will be the only highway out of the lower mainland (except for maybe Hwy 99). The Coquihalla is gone, and Hwy 1 was washed out as well.

    It has more to do with 11" of rain in 2 days.
    If you have a problem & think that someone else is going to solve it for you then you have two problems.

    Can't you just stick a finger in the levee? Or does that only work with dikes?

    I STUCK A FINGER IN YOUR MOM AND THE LEVEE BROKE....IMPRESSED?
    Hey d-bag - here's something for you to think about: maybe (just maybe) not everybody here has their little panties in a wad 24/7 and flies into a rage whenever somebody disagrees with them. Maybe these same mags don't take this place uber-seriously. Maybe this even includes the vast majority of the people who post here as opposed to you and like 20 other thin-skinned douchebags. Just something to think about. -JER

    "When the Levee Breaks" is a country blues song written and first recorded by Kansas Joe McCoy and Memphis Minnie in 1929. The lyrics reflect experiences during the upheaval caused by the Great Mississippi Flood of 1927.

    Led Zepplin have a few different versions, Bob Dylan also did it but I think this is the version most people have heard on the Zepplin 4 album with a big wailing sound ... probably my favorite

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sumas_Lake
    In 2019, the city of Abbotsford received federal funding to study flooding of the former Sumas Lake area related to overflow from the Nooksack River.[13] The report found that although a small flood such as that of 1990 could be contained, a larger one that breached dikes had the potential to refill Sumas Lake and leave parts of Sumas Prairie under more than three metres of water, submerging homes, destroying property, killing livestock, and thereby compromising food security for those who depend upon the region for agriculture.[14]
    It seems like this was an understood and predicted hazard. I understand the need for food security for the greater Vancouver area but sometimes nature does what it wants and we should do our best to stay out of the way.

    We lost at least one person in Whatcom county as well. Rest in peace.

    I wonder how long it's going to take for my skis to get here now... should have arrived yesterday. They're in Richmond now.

    First world problems, I know.

    I don't think I'm going to order anything that has a possibility of going through Vancouver until the roads and rails are all back up. But I think I did all the shopping I need to for ski stuff already so should be OK.
    Goal: ski in the 2018/19 season
