Lucky Ducks

Did you hear about the storm we had here in Toronto last night?  It caused massive flooding and a widespread power outage affecting almost a million people!  Honestly, I don't think I've ever seen anything like it.  Actually I know it.  We got more than an average month of rain in just a few hours.

But while thousands of people in this city were stranded for hours in their offices, in their cars, in buses, subways and trains, or trying to cope with a loss of power at home, we sat cosy and dry in our house, with the lights on and not a drop of water seeping inside.

I can't believe how lucky we are.  It scares me really.  Our life is already so blessed and when I look around at the seeming endless tragedies that occur around the world, I wonder what I did to deserve this?

Right now my heart goes out to those trying to piece their lives back in Alberta, the folks affected by the plane crash in San Francisco, the Quebec town flattened by an explosion, those affected by the flooding in this city, and that's just scratching the surface of tragic events recently in North America!

This bridge is right around the corner from our house!!

Leave it to Canadians to break out the canoes!!

My thoughts are with people here and every where else in this crazy world who are not as fortunate as we are.  I hope we all wake up to a better day tomorrow.
