Calgary Flooding

June 26, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

No pretty pictures or fun videos this time. Only the thought of the power of nature and how helpless we feel when She overpowers us. It has been a hard few days helping my good friends Steve and Basia to get their house to livable conditions. They were actually very lucky, only their basement was flooded, so many in the city of Calgary have lost almost everything in their houses. It is weird to drive around the downtown of a beautiful city like Calgary and see the devastation created by the Elbow and Bow rivers. Calgary is one of the richest cities in the world, so they have plenty of support to overcome this disaster. Not all the houses were multimillion dollar homes; they were also modest families that will have to work really hard to move forward after losing it all. I was glad to be able to help my good friend Steve; he has always been there for me, happy that my journey got me close enough to be able to be there for him.

I left Calgary this morning and I am making a more direct route to Alaska. Maybe I will be there by the end of the week.

Thanks for following.

Carlos
