    Re: Rare Calgary Alberta Flood

    One of the towns flooded near Calgary is Highriver.

    This is a charming town with a cowboy past.

    The population is about ten thousand.

    The abdicated King Edward VIII of England owned a large spread of property
    nearby, and was hoping for a petrochemical discovery on his ranch.

    Author Charles Higham has written a fascinating book

    called
    "The Duchess of Windsor: The Secret Life".

    Oil was not found and the property was sold.

    The City of Calgary is being flooded by the Bow and Elbow rivers.

    There are some areas of history that are being washed away .


    The Strathcona School on Riverdale is probably gone.
