For over a month now we have been having rain, at times very heavy, most days. Thirty minutes from here on lake Champlain and the Richelieu river several thousand people have been flooded for the last 60 days. Yesterday, 2000 volunteers went there to help clean the mess and 1000 more today. Over the next two weekends 3000 more will pitch in to remove 500 000 sandbags, various debris carried in by the current and salvage whatever can be salvaged. Today it rained cats and dogs raising new fears that the water would rise again.
Tonight around 7 PM this rainbow appeared over our street. Let's hope it announces the deluge's end.
