Write four lines of prose about: before the flood.
With the cool, wet spring and the recent increase in temperatures causing the snow at higher levels to melt, lake levels have been very high for the last week or so. Everybody's talking about water levels and how much flooding there will be and when it will happen. People in lower lying areas have been sandbagging.
Personally, walking the beaches is a completely different experience now compared to when I started this job. There are stretches I can no longer patrol because the lake has come right up to walls or tree/bush lines. Probably more than fifty percent of the sand has disappeared under water. It's pretty crazy.
We dodged a storm today but the flood watch will be continuing for a while yet.
These waters will rise, because Mama Nature say so. Rivers will become lakes, lakes will become oceans, because Mama Nature say so. We will walk until we find the highest ground, to stay dry, to stay safe... because Mama Nature say so?
No man, that just be common sense.
