It’s been an unsettling week!
For the majority of citizens not directly affected by the Calgary flood, there’s been a surreal feel about the whole thing. The water has now receded and most people have managed to return to their homes. Desperately sad to see the sidewalks piled high with furniture, appliances, carpets and drywall waiting for the city to dispose of them. A friend, whose basement was completely flooded, told me that she watched ‘her life’ being hauled away in a dump truck yesterday.
Hard to imagine.
