Last reports had the water in the saddledome up to the 14th row of seats and the dressing rooms are completely submerged. Big issue is cleaning up for the Stampede which starts in two weeks - it's a pretty big deal for Calgary and ironically one of the slogans is "Come hell or high water". Hmmm ... The city really got hit badly - downtown is partially submerged, as are alot of the communities along the Bow River.
Another big issue is the TransCanada Highway (which is one of the main connections to British Columbia) is shut down because part of the road got absolutely torn up just around the gates to Banff National Park.
Rural areas (like mine) fared better, I suspect because we have the land to soak up the water. Cities with all the asphalt, and communities built on flood plains, just get submerged because there is nowhere for the water to go. Our place is like a giant oversoaked sponge, but the house and barn stayed pretty much dry. Thankfully the loss of life is low (I know - anything above zero is horrendous but it could have been so much worse) and people are ridiculously helpful and eager to bounce back.
It's been an experience, for sure. But I continue to say - horse people are incredible.
