I lived a half block from the Elbow River in Mission during the flood year. And then the flood came and I lived IN the Elbow River. Couldn't go home and my neighborhood was locked down. If you recall, this was only days before the Stampede, which was under water. The Saddledome was full of water too. Yet, SOMEHOW, mere days later, the Stampede went on. There were few visitors for that Stampede that year besides us locals, but it was one of my most fun ever.
