I’ve never lived anywhere where the possibility of a natural disaster was a regular thing. I think that it would be absolutely terrifying to live in a place where wild fires or tornados were a yearly occurrence, so the flooding here in Calgary was definitely a new experience. It’s crazy to think that we were so close to area that was flooded. A few streets over and we would have been under water. Luckily we were only evacuated for a few days and got to camp out with some lovely people. We were extremely lucky and really, the only thing we lost were the entire contents of our freezer and fridge because we had no electricity for a few days.
