Now, all is not dire. People with stairs down to the river, and docks, and even boat houses are in it for sure right now, but no actual homes or community buildings are flooded right now in Moosonee. Our building is up fairly high, for all that it's close to the river, and so far even our sump pump hasn't had to work overtime, and the crawl space is dry. There are no standing puddles anywhere near us, and thankfully it's been a pretty dry spring so far, and right now the only real threats are melting snow (which is becoming less of a problem in our immediate vicinity) and the overflowing, choked up river. That being said I've heard it's supposed to rain tonight and tomorrow and I can only hope and cross my fingers that it's just a half-hearted drizzle and that rainwater will not compound our issues.
