Yeah it's craziness!!! "Rescued" the fiancee from downtown early yesterday and it still took me 1.5 hrs to get out of the city.

The bow was flowing heavy last night!

Came here to post about this. Ctown is CRAZY. Saddledome is flooded up to the 14th row, a hundred thousand people evacuated, Nenshi hasn't stopped tweeting and working in like 48 hours. It's insane.

Good luck guys and gals.

I've been hearing it's past the 18th floor now.

I'm super stoked to hear how relatively mature people are handling this. Hopefully things settle down over the weekend! The only thing I wish people would do though is stop crossing the police tapes. They're set up there for a reason!

Poutine: That's scary. I used to drive highway 1 a fair bit over the winter. =/

Just got off the phone with my Calgary-based brother and a few Canmore/Cochrane based friends. Oy...it's bad: deep and fast moving. Bridges out, houses ripped off foundations bad.

Best of luck

Saddledome before


After
