Sending Prayers

This morning I felt a little lost and normally I like that a lot, in fact, usually every Saturday morning I head out the door in search of getting lost.  This  morning was different, the roads I go down to get lost are flooded, washed away, closed, barricaded, blocked!  I resigned to the fact that I am confined to the city, but not confined to my home.  I am very fortunate that I have the choice whether to stay home or go out.  I am so sorry for those that don't have that option!

I went to an area of the city where I knew I could safely check out the devastation, staying behind the "do not cross" signs and incorporating the use of my zoom lens.  I could not believe what I saw!  It was emotional to view and it left me in awe.  I have never seen anything even remotely close to what was right before my eyes.  My heart goes out to all the folks who have been affected.

road and river blend to become one

someone is in a safer place

a nature trail is under there somewhere

The Peace Bridge

helping out in a more needed place

having a very personal moment behind his elbow

not all reflections are lovely

hopefully their homes were spared

I can't remember what this is suppose to look like!

Should be bustling on a beautiful summer Saturday!

fast and furious

staying safe behind the tape

watching the clouds bubble up and thinking "Please, no more"

Life almost seems to be stopped right now!
For some like me it is, but for others their life is a world wind out of control!

My thoughts and prayers go out to you!

  1. It has been a very emotional few days. We drove to Cochrane today; the TransCanada Hwy was very eerie & quiet...very strange...very sad. Just last week I was standing on top of Prairie Mountain, today I feel sad. Praying for the families who were evacuated; for their safety and that their losses will be minimized and they can return to happy times soon.
