Somber anniversary

20 years ago today, July 31, 1987, Edmonton was devastated by a F4 hurricane which left 27 dead, many others injured and millions of dollars in property damage. A memorial service is scheduled for this morning at site of the largest number of casualties, the Evergreen Mobile Home Park.

We had just left Alberta for British Columbia and so have no personal view point. It does drive home to power of Mother Nature. Be aware and stay safe.

I saw that on the news today and it is a sad reminder that we are not far from such tragedy :o(
