I Just got an unofficial flood report . The Souris River which flows into the Assiniboine River is expected to be at 2011 levels which was a record setting event. The Souris is expected to add 30,000 cfs to the Assiniboine. The Red River which flows through Winnipeg is expected to be at 2009 levels.
The Portage Diversion will be put to use again raiseing the level of Lake Manitoba. The planned second outlet for Lake Manitoba hasn't been constructed yet so there will probably be flooding of cottages and villages close to Lake Manitoba.
I just took Abbey for a short walk yesterday to the corner store. I must be getting lazy. It was a great day, I'll have to get her out today.
