KV Birthday

Happy Birthday to my better half. We spent the day with a brand new Tesla Model S and decided to take it to Canmore. What an experience! I never thought I would love driving an EV as much as I did. It exceeded my expectations and was surprised at how well I warmed up to it. The driving dynamics, auto pilot, supercharging capabilities were all very impressive. There will be an EV in the garage fairly soon!

 

Calgary Flood – Mission Aftermath

Calgary Flood – Mission Aftermath

City of Calgary allowed residents back to communities as part of a “self assessment” campaign. Parts of Mission were allowed back. Police and other officials were still keeping non-residents out of the area. Access was only being given to residents with valid ID showing they lived in the area.

The following are photos I was able to capture of the damage to some parts of the community.
