Oh boy
Kiprusoff retires. Harvey The Hound's corpse found floating in the Saddledome. Calgary just can't catch a break.

If you ignore the propaganda, there is some interesting info on this page and a picture of Sunnyside under water in 1932. Seems the Bow flooded quite a bit in the late 1800s and early 1900s. This appears to be the 3rd worst ever recorded for flow but the worst in most everyones lifetime. Hopefully we arent going to see a frequency of flood like 100 years ago again

Just got back from Calgary. Didn't see much from there as I was by the airport, but seeing High River from the highway nearly brought tears to my eyes. At first blush you would say it's a beautiful lake front community until you remember there isn't supposed to be a lake there. Disaster is the only word to describe it.

The Bonnybrook bridge in southeast Calgary is sinking with a train on it. There is explosive materials in the cars (diesel and sulphur) from what I heard and they evacuated a 1/2 mile radius around the area.

I was lucky enough to be driving my mom to the airport and got stuck in the gridlock. Took us 3 hours to get there after a gigantic slow-moving detour. Just horrendous.

Good thing I have floor seats at Tim McGraw on July 11. Would rather stand in mud rather than sit in it...

Flames' home opener slated for October 6th...been told that if Saddledome isn't ready, League and Team are looking at Saskatoon.



that gives calgary 13 weeks to get ready from today, or 14 weeks total, for recovery.
(the hitmen have a game scheduled for 28 september, btw)

i havnt seen any updates on the interior condition for a few days. We should get a look next week with the stampede.

I've been down at the Stampede grounds for the last few days doing some restoration work and the place is looking a lot better than you might think it would. All the rides, food vendors and beer tents are being set up and it's starting to look like business as usual down there. I have been working at the Grandstand so unfortunately I haven't been able to get into the Dome but there are definitely lots of crews going hard in there. Personally, with the amount of progress I've seen in the last week, I don't see how they wont be have it ready for the season. Oh yeah, and they painted a giant hot dog on the stairs at the west entrance. I'm not savvy enough to post the pic, but if you're on instagram, you can see it at the #stampede101 tag.

Not too shocking. All the money in the world couldn't have made the Saddledome ready that quickly.
