    Lynn, I am so sorry y’all are experiencing such destructive weather. The pictures are sobering. Praying for everyone’s safety!

      Thanks Anne. I was born and raised in Calgary. Never thought I would ever see this kind of devastation in my home town. Calgary is set to host the Greatest Outdoor Show on Earth – the Calgary Stampede in two weeks! Not even flood waters will stop the event! Shows our resiliency of spirit don’t you think?
