I think I mentioned that we've been having consistently rainy weather recently? Well, all that rain has helped put the city I live in, Calgary, Alberta in the news. Many (currently 27) neighbourhoods have been evacuated and a State of Emergency has been declared due to extreme flooding. Calgary is not the only city facing flooding, unfortunately. Here's a link to some flood photos, as a sample of what's happening.
Thankfully, the neighbourhood where I'm living is not under evacuation orders, but with more rain in the forecast, we're staying watchful. (After all, it was only a couple of years ago that our basement experienced some flooding after 3 days straight of rain and this month we've seen more than that).
Even though I live here and know how much rain we've had, it still seems surreal. All the coverage I've seen looks like something out of a movie and my head is having a hard time comprehending what I'm seeing. My heart goes out to everyone going through this. I'm hoping we've seen the worst of it.
Anyways, I'll touch base here again, just wanted to let everyone know that so far, our home is unaffected and we still have potable water and all our utilities plus still able to leave the city by alternate routes if needs be. We've got a back up plan in case things change and we need to evacuate.
Your thoughts and prayers would be appreciated for everyone living in the affected areas.
