Endangered Species

With the floods in Calgary, the Herald ran a pretty funny cartoon today I just had to post. Click on the imagine for the full sized version.

  • Hope you guys are ok out there. Like I said over at the Calgary Observer, let us easterners know if there is anything we can do to help...

  • Thanks Mike. Sincerely, we appreciate your thoughts.

    Unfortunately, speaking of Easterners, the PM was a little milquetoast on the subject:

    “There are established programs for this kind of problem and obviously the government of Canada will be looking at those,” he said."

  • Thank you, Mike. I think we're going to be OK over here. I can't speak for all the regions in Southern Alberta, but around here, the sun has been out all day (and it's quite hot), and the ground is drying up right in front of your eyes.

    We're going to have warm and sunny weather until Wednesday, I believe; then, some more rain is expected. But it should not be too bad.

  • It was a beautiful day today which will definitely help. I've seen some of the flood damage and it's something else. But I'm sure it's nowhere near as bad as some of the other natural disasters people have seen in other parts of the country over the past few years.

  • speaking of political leanings in AB and floods (and quite appropriate to the cartoon):

    what a relief the sun was today hey?

    walked through SAITs grounds yesterday while volunteers were frantically trying to track and direct lost Calgarians (evacuated from their homes) - that rocky bedded river was passable on foot a month ago, without the need to roll up ones pant legs.

    but as i look out my window here, out onto the street, you wouldn't know it. don't you find it remarkable how quickly this place looks dry and dusty after a few weeks of wet,wet, and more wet?

  • Yeah, if there is anything I can do in Regina to help, please let me know!
