    Default Canadian floods - any Fretters affected?

    I just read web news headlines about it.
    Quite dramatic.

    Anybody we know affected?

    I am not sure if our esteemed leader is near this region - major blind spot on Canada geography, which is odd, for me (goofing off during middle school paid off: teacher had me draw five color copies of the map of the world...been a geography enthusiast since!).

    Not directly, but we were going to head down towards this area today, to run a relay with 10 people. Ain't gonna happen. Race has been canceled of course.

    Here's High River, video shot from a combine, leaving the Co-op.

    This is crazy.

    Default Canadian floods - any Fretters affected?

    My brother lives in Calgary, on the edge of town and far from the chaos, but his job is underwater and without power. I'm thinking he's laid-off indefinitely.

    His girlfriend's house is at edge if disaster with the flood making its way halfway up her street. If the water rises 5 more feet, she may have to move in with my brother.

    I said this is God's way of telling him to commit and take their relationship to the next level.

    He didn't think that was funny. Too soon?
