There is finally an end to the flood in sight! Our river really did crest yesterday as predicted, and on my way to work last night I could see a clear drop of about 6-8 inches from the high water line. We still have a few buildings downtown that were evacuated (some mandatory, some voluntary), and those will need to be inspected before everyone can go back, but it looks like we made it through this one. Certainly not unscathed...the city estimates it'll end up spending in the neighbourhood of $500,000 overall, and that doesn't include anything spent anywhere else or what individuals or insurance companies are going to end up spending. The previous record flood was in 1904, if that gives you some indication of how bad this one was.
