We (me, DH, DSS1&2, DS and our dog) were supposed to drive to BC on Saturday morning to go visit DH's sister until Wednesday. This is the Canada Day long weekend so we were hoping that traffic wouldn't be as bad on Saturday b/c most people would likely leave Friday for the mountains. With all of the devastating flooding we have had recently, parts of the Trans-Canada Highway were washed away 90 mintues west of Calgary. Right now they have opened one lane in each direction between Canmore and Banff (12km stretch) and the speed limit is 60km/hr instead of 100km/hr. They say to expect delays b/c they are still repairing the road etc.
Our road trip is 6 hours non-stop but with this delay who knows how much longer it will take. Would you go?
