My Town



Okotoks, like many small towns is built on a river and of course the railway tracks run through it. We have had rain since Sunday and heavy rain for the last 2 days. And then there is the spring snow run off from the mountains to contend with.



 This is usually an RV campground that is packed as it is right on the Sheep River. Today it has been closed and soon will be underwater.


This is the road between the campground and the river,

and this is the kiddy park close by.

We took a few photos from one of the bridges in town:



Then we drove down to the library which in the best of times is close to the river. The library is about 25 feet from these sights.



We do not live near the river, but there is the worry and concern for others, and for my beloved library. I will check it out again tomorrow to see what is happening. The word is that the rain is supposed to stop around midnight.

Hope it stops raining soon! It's been a long winter and a cold spring so far.
