@crystalrae:  First of all, congratulations on your marriage.  You sound like you were incredibly composed throughout all of the changes.  Those images are haunting.  I can’t imagine going through something like that!  Cheers to you and your husband.

Two of my good friends got married here in Ottawa in November, and they moved out to Calgary in April to start new jobs and new lives… Both of their places of employment are now completely flooded. Best wishes to all of you out there!

@trixiesrockets:  Oh and Calgary is a bit bigger than a town – it has over 1million residents… A lot of people struggling right now! So sad 🙁

I am still in shock. Poor Calgary!! I am so glad you were able to have your family and friends there and you made it work. I just can’t believe this is happening?

This flood is far worse than the one in 2005. I cry when I see pictures of Calgary, High River and Canmore. So much devastation!! From what I last heard, Edmonton’s North Saskatchewan river is going to rise by 4 metres as the city is releasing a dam, as so to relief the flood down south. Regina and Saskatoon residents are on high evacuation alert.

I have been praying for the river to crest and for the rain to stop.

Meanwhile, those who wish to help with the Southern Alberta relief can do so through Red Cross: https://secure.redcross.ca/registrant/donate.aspx?eventid=126477

Oh my gosh I’m so sorry! I’m in Calgary too but luckily my house is miles from flooding, we’ve been unaffected so I can’t imagine what it must be like. I was thinking about poor brides who had weddings this weekend. It is incredible to see the city pulling through this so well.
