You would think these stores would do better for themselves if they put up a sign saying they are selling water/ice @ cost.

Might get them some attention on the news..

Is bringing in an extra 100 bucks really worth the negative press/word of mouth?

So some rocket scientist had the Million buck jumbotron at Saddledome lowered to the floor for safe keeping and nobody thought about that in the 24hours it took for this rising water to reach and fill the saddledome..

kinda stupid.

I've always found that keeping a case in the car, office and a couple at home makes sense.

Husky usually gets me though. 6 aquafina 591mil for 2.99 in the summer. End up with a six pack every time I go for gas.

Get govt to pitch in on fixing up the saddledome, collect insurance monies to fix up the saddledome, hold onto extra money, build new arena, sign some plug high in draft.

Price Gouging is actually not a horrible thing. In situations like Hurricanes governments have tried to enforce pricing on items like fuel etc, and all they did was create a black market for items where the items would sell out WAY faster (since they were priced below market value) and then people would resell them at higher prices anyways.

There is some fascinating economics around price gouging and scarcity and from what I have read it actually makes more sense for the general population if products are sold for their actual value (even if that seems crazy high) in times of crisis.

Everyone in Edmonton... get prepared and stay safe. It's so easy to get caught out when the waters rises so fast... like we've seen in so many places in southern Alberta. Assume the worst and get away from the low-lying areas.

The river was about maybe 5-10 feet below its typical flood plane as I viewed at low level bridge earlier today so if this indeed happens its going to spell trouble for the flats neighborhoods like Rossdale, Riverdale. Paritucularly the brickyard development which shouldn't be there.

+1

I know you guys aren't at quite as much risk, but this thing snuck up on us FAST. It started as a heavy rain warning (happens a few times a year, not a big deal to us) and then bam, likely well over a billion in damages throughout the city and likely some deaths. Play it safe, and protect your house if there's even the slightest chance of anything happening.

Also can't hurt to pick up some water now obviously before anyone else gets screwed over by greedy stores.

It'll be close! Rossdale was at 6.17m this morning, and 10m is considered danger level. I'm actually surprised the rain was far north enough to catch the North Saskatchewan tributaries... but I'm no expert.
