The worst flooding for 100 years. We’re less than a mile from some of the most badly hit areas, but fortunately we’re warm and dry and still have power. Four ARWA members have managed to make it in for the retreat – others who were coming in from out of town are staying home for safety, but we’re going to meet on Skype tonight.
This is probably the worst disaster Calgary has ever seen. Our mayor, Naheed Nenshi, has apparently just been on CNN. It appears that out of the 100,000 people forced from their homes, only 1,500 have had to use the public shelters, such is the generosity of Calgarians. As a city, Calgary rocks!
Stay safe out there, everyone.
