I’ve been pretty quiet on the blog this week as I’ve been cleaning, cleaning, cleaning. I’m hosting ARWA’s annual writing retreat this weekend – I’ll have eight people staying the weekend, with a few others popping in for the day and more coming on Saturday evening for a pot-luck supper – and I’m not renowned for being the best housewife in the world.
And then the rain fell!
I’ve been lucky. Some seepage in my basement and a leak in my kitchen roof, but other than that I’m fine. Not so more than 100,000 other Calgarians! A state of emergency has been called in the city and other areas in Southern Alberta. I’ve lived in Calgary since ’88 and I’ve never – ever – seen anything like this before.
