first off, I had no idea Canada was capable of flooding with how cold it is up there... that's news to me. secondly the ad that came up before the video started was for a trip to hawaii and meeting friends (turtles) underwater and coming into their home. Awkward.

I can't believe the Saddledome filled up to the luxury boxes. That's near unfathomable to me

Ive been thru a few floods before. Nothing like this thankfully. Just cleaning mud out of basements, moving things to higher ground, a few relatives had to replace first floor carpeting. This stuff is equivalent to those tornadoes almost. The waters could go down right now and your house is unlivable. Your life is destroyed. So sad

A tweet that I read last night, can't remember who it was attributed to:

It's going to be hard to get all of that water out of the Saddledome with only one Cup.

Here's a pic from this morning.

This was 10 rows up, but I saw a few reports saying that the water was 14 rows up
