No doubt, if I had to leave my house I would have run the sprinkler system the whole time I was gone. I am betting that some people did not care if there house was taken seeing as how many people are having trouble selling or are about to be foreclosed on. I have heard some people comment that this will give a little boost back to const. in MB, but I bet you over half of the people will not rebuild. Instead they will either buy something else, or rent. Just my guess though.
