So CBC’s Canada Writes put out a call for people to pin stories about their communities to places on the map of Canada. I decided to write about moving up here to The Pas and our trepidation over the potential of rising waters in the river across the road from our house.

You can read it right here. Or go here to see it (and the other Editor’s Picks) on the map. And while you’re there, write your own piece!

I wrote this just after April’s mid-point and since then the flood forecast has improved, largely because of our s-l-o-w melt. Minus 10 the last couple mornings. Snow in Saskatoon and parts south this past Monday. The warm weather will sure get a warm welcome, once it decides to show up.
