Don't Lag Me Bro: +1 for headline.But, yah, I'm so glad when I moved here I built on high ground. I remember it was one thing I was looking for when we picked our location.
SordidEuphemism: Literal guffaw when seeing this headline. +1 indeed.
palais: I grew up in High River, so I've seen some flooding in my time, but never like what happened there yesterday.I live and work in the Northeast of Calgary, so I'm at work right now telling everybody who calls in no one else is really here and that we might not be able to do much in the way of shipping stuff. Right now they're trying to figure out who is open. I don't see a problem though of them delivering to the Foothills Industrial Park if our clients are open.Most of the employees all live south of the Bow and have been told not to cross the bridges by the City.Thankfully all my friends and family are currently safe and soundStay safe, fellow Calgarians./love the headline. I read it with Darrell Hammond's Sean Connery voice in my head.// was anyone else having issues with phone and SMS last night? My internet was working, I have no landline, but family members who do have landlines were unreachable, and my SMS was hit and miss.
ObscureNameHere: So if Toronto called in the Army to deal with a civic weather issue, does Calgary have to call in the Navy?
Cynicism101: I was shocked this morning when The Current mentioned that THE ENTIRE POPULATION OF HIGH RIVER (13 000) was evacuated. Holy shiat.
unyon: I've taken in a few evacuees here at my place in Killarney. I have clients in the downtown core that are about to lose power.
Aidan: ObscureNameHere: So if Toronto called in the Army to deal with a civic weather issue, does Calgary have to call in the Navy?Calgary actually has a naval base. Yeah, it was one of those WTF things to me.
Mr_Ectomy: Yes, CNN, it is only in Calgary. It's not in the southern third of the province at all.[i39.tinypic.com image 180x257]
Langdon Alger: Calgarians....sounds like an alien race from Star Trek
