Flood 2019

Many hands make light work

The last week or so has brought major flooding to Ottawa and environs. I was able to spend a bit of time helping out around the city. It has been amazing to see so many volunteers doing whatever they can to help. It seemed to me to be at just the right level of order/disorder. Enough organization that people were being kept safe and were doing useful tasks, but not so bureaucratic that people couldn’t just pitch in and help. I signed a bunch of waivers and that was about it. I’m sure there will be a proper evaluation after it passes, but to me, at least on the Ottawa side of the river, it looked good.
