It’s a dismal, flooded-out day throughout eastern Saskatchewan

You may have noticed a lot of empty seats at the Saskatchewan Roughriders home opener. No wonder, given the amount of flash-flooding that hit several communities today. Among the cities and towns that had state of emergencies were Yorkton, Melville, Carnduff,  Redvers, and several others. Regina itself had several areas of town flooded. What a mess down there.

Fortunately for me up here, the situation was not as bad, but this is hardly what you would call a fun day — except the Riders won the game, pretty convincingly, so I guess that was the only good news.

Here’s a story on the whole situation from Rawlco. Also, the CBC.
