Chances aren't good. The zoo is just water now. If you go and look at pictures online the amount of zoo you can see is barely anything. I feel so bad for all those animals. They said the staff did everything they could to help before they were evacuated. The bridge to get to the zoo is underwater now. You can see a little bit of it sticking out.
I had a doctors appointment on Saturday but my office is underwater now. I'm kind of dissapointed tbh :( Got to wait until the 2nd to get papers to get an ultrasound but I don't know if that will even happen since the river down south is flooding badly now. And all the ultrasound places are probably closed down. My DH and I are looking at pictures right now and its just...its crazy. Calgary is a big freaking city and to ee how much is flooded is crazy.

Thats what I am seeing as well. Lions and tigers and snow leopards. Hard thing with evacuating the zoo is there are SO many animals and it's hard to get to them now and hard to get out of the zoo. The zoo has become an island now surrounded by water.

Yea we are expecting to get more rain. Our mayor said things are under control for now and things are slowing down but if we get more rain it will be bad.

I am SOOO thankful how Alberta has come together to make it through this. I am incredibly proud to be an Albertan :)

Yup. People really came through for everyone. And i love that the stores that tried to take advantage are getting repercussions for being douches ina time of need. Were you in an affected area?

Totally. I am south of Calgary so thankfully did not get flooding. We opened the old man river dams, and were expected to flood, but thankfully not.
