when in Calgary
changes her clothes
with the dizzying
rapidity of a thirteen year old
trying to figure out
what to wear to the school dance,
then rushes off
leaving chaos in her wake.
pouring over drains
heading for places
no river should be.
We could see roads
but brown water
For my friends and their families in Southern Alberta suffering from the massive flooding throughout the region. May people, pets, and possesssions be reunited without damage. May insurance cover the rebuilding! May rebuilding be prompt.
So, following on the videos of sites from Grace Awakening Power, I thought I should probably include some videos of sites from Grace Awakening Dreams, which is set in Calgary. So here is Fish Creek Park, where Ben and Grace picnicked and he played her a special tune:
and here is the Calgary Tower(enjoy the saucy music!). I’m sad to report that they no longer have the informative recording in the elevator!
and here’s the C train, Light Right Transit. This video starts at Chinook station, which is approximately where Grace has the encounter with the knife. She’s off the train by 39th Street with the police.
Readers who aren’t from Calgary are going to be really confused about the weather described in Awakening Dreams. Weather in Calgary is complicated. Here’s a really good youTube video that explains the phenomenon of the Chinook, which brings warm, dry weather and can melt feet of snow in a few hours as temperatures soar to 21 Celsius (~70 Fahrenheit), as well as the reasons why there’s been snow in Calgary every month of the year!.
