Please pray for everyone who lives along the St John River. Fredericton's downtown is under water. The waters are supposed to start receding today.
We make a lot of jokes about floods here in the face of global warming predictions because a great deal of our area is below sea level and 200 year old dykes keep the tide waters at bay, but we are always prepared for a flood as a result. It is just devastating to see flooding in areas that aren't ready for it.
