When I sit down to write this there is some serious flooding in the city of Gatineau, Quebec, about 30 km (18 miles) from our house (it is where the Man works). 390 homes have been evacuated, 689 people have left voluntarily, 142 pets are being helped by the Red Cross, almost 300 000 sand bags have been filled, over 117 mm (4.5 inches) of rain has fallen since May 1 and now 80 members of the military have arrived to help out. This follows the 7th snowiest winter on record and the 2nd wettest April on record. The highway Man and Lady use to get to town is now closed due to flooding. The government has closed the offices in Gatineau (meaning Man has the day off) and are begging people to not use the bridges over to Ontario, meaning Lady is working from home instead of going to the office.
I don't really like to be wet in the house and because the Man and Lady have been closing their bedroom door so I can't roll all over their bed to dry off (that really isn't nice) and because we don't have carpet, I have been doing my best to find suitable places to sit.
Lady laughed at me for picking the mat by her sink in the bathroom. I think it is the perfect fit!
Join us in sending good thoughts to all those who are seriously affected by the flooding in our area. The rain is suppose to stop today (and be rather light at only 5-10 mm) but a cold front is moving in and we have had some snow.
I think the weather is broken! But I have my Precious so I will be ok!
Your pal, Phod
