This Photo was taken from a hotel in Fort McMurray Alberta. The entire city has been evacuated and many homes lost already due to forest fire. The hotel above is one of our client's hotels - we are unsure if it is still standing. We have many friends in Fort McMurray and our thoughts are with them. We were able to reach one of them last night, her fiancee is a pilot and he had been hired to move an airplane out with the owners who were evacuating - and she was able to go along as well. One of my husband's best friends is in management in the Ambulance department at Fort McMurray - we have not heard from him but expect we won't for many days as he has his hands full right now. Fort McMurray may be an oil town but it is so much more than that - many businesses and people call it home.
After the price of oil dropped this city was struggling to stay alive. I am not sure what it will look like after all of this is over. If you are outside of Canada here is a link to what I am talking about:
