"Still lie the sheltering snows, undimmed and white;
And reigns the winter's pregnant silence still;
No sign of spring, save that the catkins fill,
And willow stems grow daily red and bright.
These are days when ancients held a rite
Of expiation for the old year's ill,
And prayer to purify the new year's will."
Helen Hunt Jackson, A Calendar of Sonnet's: February

Can someone lend me a helicopter?

The main routes to my town are closed due to the flood. Anyone know how to post videos from facebook here?.

    Lucky you that you're not stuck in la pampa with the free range cattle @Roman.

    But this happens every year that the Salado river overflows its banks and Villanueva gets isolated, doesn't it? When do you think you'll be able to go back home?

    I live in the next town, General Belgrano. We had all the main routes interrupted. Yesterday was the peak of the river Salado, so we expect that today or tomorrow one of the routes will be rehabilitated.
    This kind of flood does not occur every year. The last flood like this was in 2001, i guess.

    Oh! okay, I got the wrong information then. Are you now back on dry land?
  • RomanRoman Posts: 494 ✭✭✭
    Yes, thank you. Things are returning to the normality for the people in the town but still there are hundred of thousand acres flooded.

    @Roman same here and I have met the people who are in relief camps. Their stories are really miserable. Having no shelter is a big insecurity in life.:(
