Are you in west Courtenay? I use to live on Embleton Crescent, near the river.
That's it. We were up the street a bit. We loved it there but had to move.
We lived at 2043 Embleton from 94-96. I had a malamute-x. The best friend I ever had. We did the trails too. I miss those times, and my friend.
About the netherlands...really? And there's never been a flood there? When I was in my hometown( Wuhan, a large city in the middle of China, on Yangtze River), once there was a big flood. And the news said people were actually catching fish on the roads or at their own homes(fish from those fish pounds in the suburbs) . I saw a guy catch a freaking big one in his living room on TV! It didn't kill people in our city as far as I know, but it did kill many people and sweep away homes in other areas especially those countryside areas.
My home was quite near to the Yangtze River(only one block away from the bank) and seemed much lower but it didn't flood my home.
Yeah, I know, I'm off the topic.
