Chatham Ontario Flood Monday February 16 2009: 
Due to mild temperatures, snow melt caused the Thames River to overflow it's banks on Monday February 16, 2009.  This led to Flash Flooding in
low lying areas such as parking lots and Community Parks.  I went to Chatham to check it out for myself.  The local EMO had the park danger under control.  Local HAM frequencies were quiet because their was no immediate danger to people or property.

Parking lot (zoomed in) view of an A1 Shine van. 
Not sure why the van was not moved in time.
I guess the owner can clean out the van himself!

Chatham Ontario Flood:  Street Light Under Water
This image of a street light almost under water shows the scale of water depth that occurred in Chatham ON. on Mon Feb 16 2009. 
I'm guessing the water was 8 to 10 feet deep.

New Hamburg Ontario Flash Flood Dec 28, 2008: 
Ice Debris/Chunk Image
After the flood waters receded the next day, I drove downstream from New Hamburg.  Along Holland Mills Road, I came upon these large ice chunks that were grounded when the flood waters receded.  They were fairly big, over 2.5 feet thick and around 10 feet in diameter. 
I parked my car along side for scale in the image.

New Hamburg Flash Flood December 28, 2008
Ice Debris/Chunk Image
Along Holland Mills Road I stopped to get a picture of these large ice debris chunks.  Measuring over 2 feet thick and over 10 feet long, they were formed when record warm temps, along with modest rainfall joined together to swell the Nith River. 
This was some of the worst flooding in 57 years.
