Thank you for diking — it saved my home

It has been 10 years since I moved back into my house after the flood of November 2009!

Thank you for diking — it saved my home

It has been 10 years since I moved back into my house after the flood of November 2009!

My heart goes out to those affected by the recent torrential rain storm last weekend. I know what you are going through right now. I am so thankful to the City of Duncan, Municipality of North Cowichan and the Cowichan Tribes for building the dikes that protected my home from the flooding that took place to many homes and business last weekend.

My backyard turned into a lake but my recent purchase of my own sump pump helped alleviate that. My new best friend.
