{Flooding Friday}

I had this post all ready to go for today but I can't post it with out commenting on what's going on in our city and surrounding areas. I always thank our lucky stars that awful natural disasters don't happen around here often - not that I wish them on anyone but the news is constantly full of them and I just could never imagine having to deal with them - they are heartbreaking.
Then yesterday happened!
This is what this bridge looked like yesterday..
This is normal...
Today schools are closed - I can't recall the last time all schools were closed! Downtown is closed. Roads are rivers. Communities have been evacuated. Thousands are without homes.
Houses are falling into the rivers.
This video shows a house in Bragg Creek getting washed down the river and crashing into this bridge.
This is the view from a friends place of Princess Island Park.
And downtown.
It's awful. And I cannot believe this is our city. It's heartbreaking. Please Mother Nature STOP RAINING!!!
Luckily at this point - everyone is safe. And really that's all that matter.
If it continues to rain they are going to have to move the animals from the zoo to the jail! Crazy.
A huge thank you to all the emergency workers in our city who have not stopped. They are going on hour 30 of their shifts. So thank you to all the helpers. Everyone else stay home and stay safe.

On to something a little happier...
A tip for your Friday...
My cousin Logan is making all the cupcakes and wedding cake for my cousin Ashley's wedding this weekend (luckily the wedding is not in Calgary!!) so I plan to eat cupcakes. The best part is turning the cupcakes into muffins. ;)

On to some outfits.
[dress: clearance at walmart for $8! bonus is it's a xs in regular clothes so will work after babe too and I envision it will work all summer long!
sweater: old navy, necklace: ebay]

[dress: mexx, sweater & flats: joe fresh]

[pants: walmart, top: walmart maternity, sandals: target, bracelet: made by my SIL]

[dress: target, jacket: old navy maternity]

Have a fantastic weekend everyone! Please have a word with Mother Nature for us!
I know I am not going to want to come home on Sunday.

The last picture you posted shows Troy's work at NewAd! It's the third brick building on the right hand side. Crazy! Luckily the offices are on the third floor but their storage container is in the underground parkade. So much for those digital media boards. It's absolutely nutz!

Okay and I'm wondering... if there are maternity sections in US Walmarts? I don't shop there often at all and have never noticed. You have some CUTE stuff from there!!

Nicole @ Haute Runner said...

The flooding is just devastating. My heart hurts for all the people who have lost their houses and belongings. It is going to take the city a long time to recover from this.

I LOVE your walmart dress! Seriously adorable. I never find cute stuff there!

I love all your maxi dresses. Your walmart pants still fit?

Hope the wedding was wonderful. I'm sure it was a nice distraction from all the chaos going on in our city.

Whit said...

Wow the photos you have are intense. The centre street bridge is a bridge that is close to my heart - walking it every day to work and living up the hill from it. so sad. my heart hurts for our city.
I am in love with Wednesdays outfit. I love your hair like that, very modern.. can you call hair modern? Well it is. xox
