The Unforgiving River
Last month the river flooded. This month the river has taken the father of one of my students. His poor mother saw his father go in, and go under and he has not been found. This happened on Saturday. They were out in the bush where phones do not work and it was 6 hours before anyone came along to send for help. It is a mighty cold river. You can see it is all ice bergs just 6 weeks ago in the pictures on the link. And actually, in the 4th picture the beige house is where my student lives. He is graduating next week. Petty sad times around here.
