The devastating + horrific floods have ripped apart the communities of Southern Alberta. Jeff + I have been spared, as we live in a higher spot in our little town of Black Diamond. I haven’t been able to post anything lately because our internet JUST turned back on after 6 days of being out of service. Neighboring towns are completely destroyed + there is no public access into Canmore + Exshaw unless you have proof of residency. I will write a proper post sometime next week – Jeff’s location on Hell on Wheels is flooded out, which started his hiatus early + we are leaving tomorrow morning for our camping trip. My heart goes out to all the people who have lost their homes, businesses + livelihoods!!!
If you haven’t watched coverage of the flooding on the news, here’s a link to a video about High River, our neighboring town which was hit really really hard. Take care everyone! Stay strong Alberta, I love you!!!!
Glad to know you guys are safe. I had thought of you often during those first days and figured that your internet was out. My friends up in Banff and my family in Calgary are all safe and sound. It’s definitely been a really strange year for weather there. Enjoy your camping trip!
I’m glad to hear your mom + dad are okay!!!

Thanks dad!!! We are with friends in Golden tonight, so one more day of wifi!!!!
Glad to know you are safe! It must be terrible to witness the after effects first hand!
Thanks Janelle! It’s been a pretty intense + surreal experience, but we were really lucky out here in Black Diamond!
