See I don't know about just throwing out the words "for the cheaper gas."

I did do some math; aggregated fuel prices based on cities en route, my car's fuel economy, average speeds allowed on highways, twisties vs interstate...

Via US nets a $48 savings to have nearly 2 hours more driving. That and there is only one border crossing into SK that is open 24/7. The one I was planning on using is only open until like 5 pm or something. IDK if I want to have a time limit for reaching the border.

I feel so horrible for my cousin that lives in high river right now. I spoke to my dad and he lost everything, he wife and baby had to be air lifted off the roof and the worst part is he didn’t have flood insurance. At least they are safe but still, he is a woodworking teacher and built everything but hand including his kitchen table… Fucken sucks

Or will things be business as usual in a week?
I think the next best option is:

So there's pictures floating around Facebook about a store charging $50 for a flat of bottled water

How greedy and selfish... I hope there's huge publicity brought to these guys and no one supports these places

Damn, that's some gnarly stuff. Our squadron dispatched 2 Cormorants today and yesterday to go help with the situation. I heard something about there being approximately 1500+ military personnel being deployed. I'm driving cross the country end of next month, we'll see how she's doing then.

I heard a lot of the pictures of prices are fakes. Like, photoshopping and people putting up their own prices on something, taking a picture, then removing it kind of thing. Not sure if true.

Why would anyone ever go back to that store? Owners like that need to be shamed for life. Luck for us our store has an ice machine. ice all day every day.
