This is a wee scene from the Yorkton area in southeastern Saskatchewan. It is the result of last week's storm that brought torrential rains and flooding to the downtown area. My water seepage seems so minimal in comparison. There are local businesses that are destroyed and homes that are totalled. Insurance companies are only covering part of what has been done because the flooding is considered to be an "Act of God". Insurance companies bug me. What the heck do we pay premiums for if we aren't going to be assisted when the unforeseen occurs??!!
I always wanted to have a car that was like an amphibian and could be driven in water as well as on land. Perhaps this would be a good thing to invest in now? Mind you, I don't think that I would want it to be like a submarine. I would not want to be underwater completely and see what all is floating around in that water with me. Yikes! Perhaps I will focus more on the boat/car/plane type of vehicle. Or perhaps moving to another planet is in order? It seems that no matter where you go something is happening with the weather. It makes one wonder what is around the corner for us and are we that messed up on this planet that the weather is so radically affected? These are just things to think about.
