Our winter is now sufficiently bad to be a national news story. It’s rained 19 of the last 23 days, and there’s a heavy-downpour warning over at Environment Canada. To make things more interesting, the snowpack on the mountains is melting, so the rivers are rising. The scenario that nobody wants to think about is when you get a monster rainstorm at the same time as a really big snowpack runoff crest and then that coincides with a big high tide. There are some parts of Vancouver you really wouldn’t want to be in were that to happen. But we don’t live in one and anyhow, Spring has be almost here... right?
