Perhaps you folks need to bring the old 1830's Beaver Trappers back, and let them sell their "plews". That would stop your problems - save the trees at the same time. Your environmentalists should "Love" that!- - -'course - you might have disastrous floods too. I guess you can't win. It's either not enough - or too much!Aaron wrote:Got back from Winnipeg tonight, around 12:30 in the morning. Left around 10 this morning. It was supposed to rain in our neck of the woods, but I figured it was going to be a steady light rain. Come back into town to find water all over the place and some major lakes in some areas. Some driveways washed out, and the entrance to our road from the highway had about 3-4 inches over it. Washed out a portion of our road, so we had to do some backtracking and go around the washed out portions. Raingauge shows 3.5 inches over about 14 hours. Must have came down hard and fast at one point to accumulate so much in some areas.
Washouts not even nearly as bad as in 2001 (13 inches over 2 days) and 2002 (18 inches over 3 days). Should post some pictures of yesterday's washout's as well as a few years back. Later today I guess.
Damn beavers. Probably wouldn't have the latest washout problems if the municipality had being doing their job and working with us to blow dams. The neighbours have been shooting beavers non-stop since early May.
