I wish we could be with the family on the East Coast, but next year I promise. Speaking of the East Coast, what a Christmas they are having...+15 degrees and rain. My mom called to tell me about the river flowing through my hometown and the flooding,of roads, school closings and basements filled with water. Approximately 105.3 mm as of Monday evening in the Fredericton areas...loads of roads closed throughout the province, possibly 94 (my mom said) in total. St. Stephen, NB received 173 mm as of December 12th...unreal! Moncton expecting more rain tonight. I look out my window and think that usually that has been our weather forecast, but here in the Toronto area we have snow on the ground (not typical) and -9 plus windchill registering up to -21 in the last few days....BRRRRRrrrrr!!!! We have been staying put because of this chill snap.

my mom told me this morning it looked like this at 10 am
and by 11:30 the water covered the road. Photo courtesy

looking up the river at the Walking /Train bridge. The object in the centre
of the picture is the abutment from the old bridge, removed many years ago.

May Christmas be Merry and Dry!
