Poem

Fort McMurray residents try to explain what it was like to leave everything behind. We’re stuck here,running out of water in the camps, no fuel, food’s rationed out. The guys just wanna go home. Estimated 1,500 cars being escorted south in RCMP-led convoy. Vehicles travelling 50 at a time under military helicopter watch. I am very proud of all Albertans who have opened their homes … thank you Canada for your compassion. Cold, wet weather in province did not reach wildfire areas. YMMFire now measures 505,645 hectares. 1,000+ firefighters, 134 pieces of heavy equipment, 39 helicopters, and 11 air tankers working on the ymmfire. The RBCup being hosted by the AJHL and LloydBobcats are donating a $1000 per goal scored in the tourney to ymmfire relief. Residents told just because homes appear OK doesn’t mean there isn’t damage. They also warn images may be traumatic. Fort McMurray residents hoping to return home. Got visual confirmation that the house is no more, but I’m happy to report there are no dandelions.
