and its been raining all week here too

after listening to talk radio all day yesterday, and watching the news (cbcnews.ca) i feel just sick. its not just "alberta flooding"thishas already ripped through BC, communities are completely cut off, saskatchewan is now beginning to be hit and after us it's manitoba.

we are preparing by sandbagging and the gardener dam floodgates have been opened, they will be flooding definbaker lake.

the waters are moving along the north and south sask rivers and will also affect manitobas red river.

this is not somthing canada has had to deal with.... i dont think ever.

this is unprecidented. this is just heartbreaking and unreal.

and it is not done yet. everywhere you look are big clouds....and they are storm clouds.

anyone in area's affected i recommend looking to kijiji under volunteer section/ they will even shelter your pets

alberta moms, if you or anyone you know needs help of ANY KIND this is blowing up with offers to help

Adding the pic of Main Street in High River because it's crazy. So glad my Grandpa, Aunts and Uncles are ok. :(

 Is this not a regular thing?  I mean, I'm from the southern coast of Long Island so flooding is a part of life, but normally floods happen over and over in the same places.

I care! But I'm not American. I am an Albertain though. They declared a state of emergency in Canmore and in Banff I think.

No, we are a landlocked province, so it doesn't happen often at all.

this is a bit worse than your normal flooding
