Remember when

We were winning Winter Olympic medals every day. Yea, that was fun. But in all seriousness, this is probably our best year ever. Sochi2014!

Happy New Year

December brought the most snow the city has seen in 100 years. July brought the most rain in the same amount of time. For the first time ever there will be residential snow removal. The cost will be astronomical (same folks who hate higher taxes scream for better residential snow removal in the deep deep suburbs.) Check out the picture of some of the work being done: So my street got plowed today

Nenshi Again

Nenshi in Landslide

Did you vote? Chances are you didn't. 6 out of 10 eligible voters didn't get out. Not that it would've made a difference. Having said that, if the entire readership of the Calgary Sun actually voted things might be different, but alas, they don't (plus how reads the Sun nowadays anyways?)

Post flooding Calgary 2013

But with devastation there's a will to get back to normal. Although stampede had the best resources available to get ready, they still made it in time.

Calgary post flood pics 2013

Memorial drive underwater. Flooded every house to the ridge.
The train tracks from the C Train bent out of shape. The tracks were back up in running in under 2 week.s
