All I have to say for today is that my heart goes out to all the people who live in the southern part of the province.
As I mentioned yesterday, we just came back from Calgary and in the span of a day it looks like a completely different place.
It isn’t just the homes, vehicles and personal property that is being taken away from these people. There is a chance that major events like the Calgary Stampede could get cancelled, or at the very least reined back. This has major economic consequences for the towns and cities that are affected as well.
With no end to the rain in sight, I don’t really see where they can go from here.
Mother Nature…she’s a bitch ain’t she.
