    Southern Alberta has been pounded by rain over that last few weeks. There has been widespread flooding all over the place, but until this weekend Canmore has escaped any trauma due to the fact that we are so high up in the watershed.

    Well, that changed on Friday. We got 7 inches of rain in 36 hours, and all the runoff creekbeds(which are dry 350 days a year) turned into muddy rivers from hell. The main raliway line almost washed out, and sections of the highways in the area were closed due to washouts and flooded sections. Luckily most of the snowpack was alreadt gone or it would have been twice as bad

    Here are a couple of pics:

    ME AND VANESSA IN FRONT OF COUGAR CREEK- THIS TIME OF YEAR IT USUALLY HAS ABOUT 6" OF WATER IN IT

    [​IMG]

    ANOTHER SHOT OF COUGAR CREEK- NOTICE HOW BADLY THE BANKS ARE WASHED OUT- APPROX. 6 FEET OF WATER TRAVELLING AT 40 MILES AN HOUR!!

    [​IMG]

    TRACKHOES DIGGING OUT THE GRAVEL AND ROCKS GETTING WASHED DOWN THE CREEK. THE MAIN RAIL LINE IS AT THE BACK OF THE POOL ABOUT 12" ABOVE THE WATER. AT ONE POINT THERE WERE 8 HOES WORKING TO KEEP UP!!!!!!

    [​IMG]

    A SPUR LINE TOTALLY UNDERMINED BY THE WATER

    Dang Paul. When we were at your place I remember thinking it'd be fun to wheel in that creek bed, it was dry as a popcorn fart last I saw it...

    Been a weird weather year already!

    Yup, Rene, that's the creekbed you saw. Like I said, normally this time of year there's a few inches of clean snowmelt water dribbling down the rocks.......

    Wanna try wheeling her now?:D

    "...her porcelin smile never faltered as her thumb moved up to the umbrella latch... a cruciform rapier slipped easily out, and just as easily slid into the right lung of the grim man. He fell soundlessly into the rain soaked streets. She turned on her heel and walked off into the darkness"

    You'd better keep ROFL, because you're going to be sleeping on the floor tonight! Not my fault my 'boobies' are small, it was Can Can's idea to have kids and they sucked the life out of them....

    No need to worry. Kim needs about 10 hours of sleep a night. There's no way she could get up in the middle of the night to do me harm. You velly lazy, girl......
