The Flooding of High River, Alberta

As one of the new writers for Amazing Stories magazine, I'm generally going to do a lot of my geekier rants and reviews on that site. Although, I'll still be doing it here as well. It just depends on the subject. My first article, however, is one I wrote with solace. My town was flooded. No, other towns in Southern Alberta were flooded; mine was destroyed. And you can read the accounts of what transpired on June 20th, 2013 right here (http://amazingstoriesmag.com/2013/06/the-flooding-of-high-river/).

The future is currently unknown for me and many others. Even if my house was fine, the town isn't, and the ground underneath us wasn't the most solid formation before the massive flooding; a sinkhole could be forming under my basement as I type this. What happened in High River was catastrophic, and people need to know. But we will get through this because we have the whole province and country behind us.
