We finally got the call. They are opening one section of High River Saturday at noon - the section my cousin and his wife live in. It has been so hard for me to be waiting - I can't imagine how long it has felt to them. Rob and Rachel were to be moving into their newly renovated place on the river the weekend they were evacuated. They also own a condo, which they sold but possession had not transferred yet, from which they were moving. Both places are their responsibility to clean-up.
They are being toured through High River tonight by bus, when they will get their first glimpse of what awaits them. Fingers crossed.
