Alberta Flooding

This is a tragic weekend in our closest city. It has affected many people including my son, who was evacuated from his home.  My friends and I drove to see the damage downstream which hadn't yet peaked.  The river was a violent, raging mess with many roads and bridges closed.  Unfortunately, I only had my phone camera with me,which died.   I am blogging from my iPhone as our Internet has been affected, so I apologize in advance as I am new to "computerless" blogging   The few pictures I was able to take, were of an area where hubby and I kayak.  

The river is much wider here than usual.   In fact I would say about three times what it normally is.

This is a road

This is a roadway too

Even the snakes were looking for higher ground. I saw four snakes within a few seconds. 

My heart goes out to the people who have lost family members.
 So tragic. 💔
