Things are just starting to open up road wise in the city, but downtown is still without power for a few buildings and the downtown communities have none. High River is still dealing with high water levels in the community. There are many bridges washed out on virtually every highway to and from the communities south of us and west of us. Banff is still just emergency vehicles in/out along the #1 highway; hopes are high for the road to be open sometime this weekend.
The Stampede is slated to start this Friday, they have adopted a new slogan - Hell or High Water, they even have T-shirts available and proceeds go to charities around here.
The amount of support/volunteers coming out of the woodwork is phenomenal, there are people here from every corner of Alberta helping out.
