Floods in our time

A: When was the first flood?
B: It was in 1997.
A: No, it happened long time before 1997.
It was in 1986, but it only reached the yard. Then in 1992, it entered houses.
B: 1992? No.

B: When did the flood enter our house for the first time?
C: It was in 1996
B: huss!.. It was in 1997.
C: eh? 1997.

A: When did the flood enter our house for the first time?
D: It was in 2005… eh? Wait the minute… mmm I think it was 1998.

E: 2002 was also a big flood.
A: 2002 and 2007.
B: Noooo. The flood wasn’t so great in 2007.
E: Whaaat?
A: 2007 was terrible. We even had to be evacuated.
B: No. it wasn’t 2007. We were evacuated in 2002.

D: Well it is impossible in 2002. That was happened after I got married. So it should be in 2007.
F: It was 2007. I remember it was written on the front wall: big flood 8 February 2007.

…. then the story goes to 2010s, January 2020, and today.
