Calgary Floods:: Not a Typical Disaster Photo

Right now where ever you look in the media there are some amazing images of the horrible floods in Calgary and southern Alberta. While it is tempting to drive downtown to where it is all happening and make photos of I prevented myself from doing so today. There are already lots of the same photos showcasing this disaster.

I walked around my own neighbourhood in the rain this afternoon. It is not in dire straights like others in the area but there are some ponds that are about 15 feet higher than normal. They are not yet putting anyone's house in danger, thankfully.

A little calm in a frantic situation.

Let me know your thoughts in the comments and don't forget to share.
