I admit I thought the same when first reading it. Then I realized I have been "citified" if such a word exists.

But I grew up in the Cariboo and well know that a headline like that would be taken seriously. With a warning like that up north, neighbours will look after neighbours. They will still have the opportunity to resume (almost) normal life by going out in their boats but will respect the space for firefighting efforts.

Cooperation is a staple of life in the Cariboo.

Meanwhile, the job is far from over and some residences are not yet liveable due to flood damage.

While Brassard and her husband fought hard to keep the water from invading the inside of their house, the dock and defensive walls by the lake are gone.

“We've got a pile driver in right now to replace the front water walls.”

Such was the damage that Brassard is still asking boaters to stay away from that northwest section of the lake.

“We can still flood. Boaters should stay across the lake and not fly past our houses.”
