Like my family – now in Kingston, Toronto, North Vancouver and Winlaw, B.C. – I have been watching the news and pictures coming out of Calgary with actual astonishment. In the quarter-century-plus we lived in Calgary, we never saw anything like what is happening there this week.
My parents lived on the banks of the Bow River for many years. In all that time, there was never flooding like this – much less evacuations of thousands of people, and then evacuations of the evacuation centres.
All of it makes me wish I could do something. Any suggestions would be welcome. In the meantime, here’s a prayer that everyone back home is going to be safe.
