Calgary Conditions

Saturday, June 22, 2013

are grim in a lot of areas, especially downtown. As many of you know, we are experiencing flooding. Our downtown is shut down, as well as schools. Over 100,000 people have been evacuated. It has hit surrounding towns and areas as well. But we are a strong people and this too we will overcome!

Sun is now shining brightly and even though it may rain occasionally, they are hopeful that things will start to move normally about Wednesday.

You can catch all the pictures and stories on your news channels or here on the Internet.

I live on high ground, so I am fine and all is well with me.

    Helen I know it must be so hard to see all this havoc. The weather sure can change plans in a hurry. I hope the rains keeps in a stopped mode and the water recedes.
