But Shuswap Mayor Darrell Trouton worries area residents could suffer again this year, without seeing a single washout.
He says Sicamous is a tourist community relying heavily on income from Alberta visitors.
Sicamous has doubled the number of events planned for the region this summer in hopes of making a healthy recovery following the troubled summer of 2012.
Trouton says residents' hearts in Sicamous go out to southern Albertans trying to rebuild from the worst flooding in a century.
But he fears the ripple effect from Alberta's floods could wash out his community's plans to put its economy back on solid footing. (CHNL)
