On June 18th, 2013, the downtown core of Calgary, Alberta, became a flood zone. Everyone in the downtown core along with 25 other communities near the Elbow and Bow rivers were evacuated. Most evacuated people, including our office, were not allowed back until June 29th, 2013.
Our office was without power for 9 straight days and we were not allowed to access the building during that time. Being on the top floor of the building, we were extremely fortunate that our office was not actually damaged by the flood.
Our thoughts go out to all of the residents of Calgary and Southern Alberta, including many of our clients, colleagues and friends who have been dealing with the devastation left by the flooding.
