Ahhhh.....Canada Day is here...
What better way for thousands of folks to gather in  downtown Edmonton but to soak away the heat in the City Hall reflecting pool and fountain.....music and a well attended beer garden helped citizens enjoy celebrations - Flags everywhere !

This could be the worst flood in Alberta ever !
The Elbow and the Bow are rising dramatically and some people are flooded up to second stories now... The Army and Police from Edmonton are being sent to help out...
The past couple days weather system's flow is driving rain into the mountains and the moisture hits the wall and drops... Calgary can "see" that wall on the horizon....

It just goes to show you anyone with $$$ can go out and buy a BMW like this....

Trouble is - driving prowess does NOT come with the car..or magically transform the driver once the key is turned !
 
Witness the young, the bold, the moronic... learn about under-steer in a BMW M3.

Car makers Fiat and Volkswagen are competitors. Fiat saw an opportunity to play a creative prank on its rival. As the Daily Mail reported:

Fiats workers spotted the Google Street view car, which captures panoramic views of locations around the world with a roof camera, driving past its offices and quickly drove to Södertälje 45 minutes away to Volkswagen’s head office.

The effort paid off, as you can see above. Search ‘Volkswagen Group Sverige AB, Sodertalje, Sweden’ in Google Maps to see it for yourself.

My friend Fred Delpero who owns Ital Motors here in Edmonton asked me if I wanted to hear the nice sounds coming out of his little black Italian "runabout" he uses for commuting .....
He has a couple black cars....
I asked which one? As he threw me keys...I was waiting for his answer.....

When I saw the Prancing Horse on the key......my big smile told him :-)


BTW ---- you don't need a radio in a Ferrari......the engine 's exhaust note -
Is pure song!!

Really difficult listening to the news this evening...Government estimates 3-5 Billion dollars damage from this last weeks massive flooding.
The premier thinks it will take the next 10 years to somehow get past all of this....
Biggest challenge for folks will be how they will find the dollars to rebuild their lives and homes. Almost no one has flood insurance. Coordination of all levels of government to perhaps assist the thousands of homeowners will be key.

What wasn't difficult to listen to - was hearing and seeing displays of volunteers and their response to a call for volunteers. 2000+ showed up and were bused around to the 12 different neighborhoods to assist in any way they could. Calgarians began the massive clean up- and the drone of pumps were emptying basements and businesses filled the air.

With so many cars submerged - a spike in the numbers of written off vehicle is going to happen...just like after Katrina and the recent storms that hit New Jersey and New York. The public has to be very vigilant .

Levels are dropping, but remain very high.
Everyone was worried that the Calgary Stampede might be cancelled as the grounds were completely inundated. Word tonight that the 101 year record of the Stampede will continue the stand. The two Worlds Wars didn't stop it.... Why would a bit of water? :-)

Check out this video on YouTube:

Summer arrived at about 11 pm last night...a potent combination of warmth and rain has caused the Bow River to rise so quickly that all along it's course to wreak havoc and cause major problems and evacuations for THOUSANDS !
Twelve communities are affected and whole towns are empty and floating...When I went to bed last night I saw news bits where Calgary workers were trucking in truckloads of material to build berms and channel the river and catch the cresting.

This morning news from Calgary said 100,000 people were being roused by overflying and loud-hailing police helicopters in the dead of the night.
Twenty neighborhoods affected and schools closed city wide. Major flooding has closed the Deerfoot Trail which is the major north/south freeway for commuters. Access to the entire downtown core is shut down and employees told to stay home .

All of this and the crests still coming.....this is looking like a hundred year flood !
