Pray for Mojo... by the way this is subby.

We are talking about 12 inches over yesterday to saturday... crazy ass flooding here

Yeah, you won't get wet...but when  the power goes out the fun starts.

Even tho you're you're in your tower. Just how dependent on power are you? Lights, elevator. food.
So it's still a good idea to get some water, canned foods etc. and lighting. Unless you like to walk 22 stories down to shop in picked over stores and lug water back up.

And grab all the porn magazines you can find... you will need something to do when the Internet isn't available.

If you were in the US, I would say brace for rioting. In Calgary, I expect that the citizens will stand tough against the onslaught and help one another through this difficult time, with only a little looting from the liquor shops, eh?

I have two families staying in our place.  They were evacuated from Bowness and Inglewood respectively.

Pack yo shiat and get the fark out
 
2013-06-21 07:41:51 AM
I'm in the Northeast.  Not sure if I have to work.  Looks like the flooding was mainly west of the Bow, which means...  probably have to work...

stay safe, stay dry.

I'm a South Floridian. I've been through some hurricanes and I know what you're going through. You have some tough decisions to make. So.. to all of our Canadian farkers in the affected area: Please stay safe. Do the smart and logical thing: If they've asked you to evacuate; evacutate..
For all of you true believers, you can now go ahead and start praying.

Drinking is the definition of shiat getting real?  Kidding, stay safe.

There's something in Calgary that's 22 stories tall?!?

Anyway, here's hoping you guys dry out before winter starts in a couple of weeks.

Been there, done that. In 2002 an electrical substation blew up on my block (grest explosion!), but the power was out for 2 days, even the emergency lights went out, I lived on the 23 floor. It happened again during the power outage of '03, no power for 3 days. It sucked, both times. After the first one, I made sure I had enough bottled water for 2 days in the apartment.

No, but sewers in floods are.  Drinking guarantees shiat unreal fluid.

Kitty does NOT look amused in that last one. In fact, I'd say someone is about to lose several layers of skin.

Staying dry in mount pleasant but my thoughts are with friends located downhill.

When the water stays at crest for three weeks and it takes another four weeks to even get back and start assessing the damage, that's when shiat gets real... Stay safe, Canadian Farkers!

I think the generally accepted equivalence is 1" rain = 10"-12" of snow.

Ungrateful cat. They're still waist deep in water, he can always let kitty go again if that is what it wants.

If I remember correctly 1" of rain is about 10-13" of snow...depends on the area

Pace yourself man. You don't want to be stuck 22 stories up during the apocalypse without drinks.

So that's a hell of a lot of snow. That would be cool.

My buddy is up in Canmore on business, bridges on both sides of him in the highway have collapsed and he is now TRAPPED.  Back luck, eh?

speaking of flooding in areas with high rises, I noticed too that here in NYC during tropical storm Sandy, that there were thousands who had to schlep up and down stairs, and if you were weak or fragile you were SOL...

so with flooding almost guaranteed to become more common wouldn't it be smart to start either refurbishing old dumb waiters to work again or to build new ones? or at least to have something similar that could be built on the side of a high rise? Obviously it would take a smart engineer to design it, but in the long run it would save lives and make things a heck of a lot easier to deal with if you were a city planner. and it would create jobs while being implemented.

Not really life-endangering shiat going on here, but it is going to be an expensive mess.

Meh, we got lots of cash.
