Calgary Flood 2013 - Day 9: book toss @ the library, a photo by Wanderfull1 on Flickr.
Today I joined a cleaning crew hauling stuff out of the basement of the Chinese Seniors Centre. A short muscular Auzzie actually yelled, "Yeah, baby!" when I jumped in the line.
Afterwards I cycled to Mission to check on a friend's apartment building (it was fine).
On the way home I swung by the Central Library to watch workers use grey Library delivery bins to haul books and debris from the basement.
Then I got as close as I could to what remains of Prince's Island Park. There were blue fences set up along the bike path and on the pedestrian bridges. At one of the pedestrian bridges I encountered a young 20-something couple.
"What are these barriers here for?" the girl asked.
"Um, there was a flood," I replied, then muttered "duh" under my breath.
They decided to ignore the barriers and cross the pedestrian bridge. "Have a nice day," the girl called over her shoulder.
"Have you heard of Nenshi nouns?" I called back.
These two totally ruined the human love-buzz I'd been feeling all week.
