You know when you look at the area on the map, it is easy to see the unique geography and the multitude of streams and ditches running thru it. It is a very contained, flat area and it looks like it is easy for water to stack up as it attempts to drain into the Fraser. I can't wait to see the mighty Fraser.
I wonder if this kind of thing happens when run off gets going?
