I was just thinking, are we aggravating the flooding problem?  The water
flow through the merchant's area was not coming from the direction of
the hall or parking lot, it seemed to be coming more from the direction
of the list field.  The pavilions keep the rain from hitting the ground
and soaking in and so adds to the runoff problem.  How many pavilions
were up and what were their size?  If this line of reasoning is correct,
we need to watch were we locate our list fields and merchant areas or we
will make flooding problems worse.  It seems to me that we are seeing
more flooding problems at many events.  Some of this is that the type of
areas set aside for temporary uses, like fairs or camps, tend to be low
lying.  Higher ground tends to be more expensive and it is put to other
more profitable uses.  Above all, we need to remember that a 4-6 inch
rain in an hour or so, will cause flooding anywhere, not just the Canton
