Welcome to the official website of best-selling author Linda Kupecek.

STRANGE WEATHER

How strange to turn on the television and discover one’s city is in a state of emergency. Downtown Calgary is flooded. Over 75,000 people were evacuated.

And yet, our street, on high ground, is surprisingly normal. Except that there is nobody on the street. Nobody. It is eerily quiet.

Very strange to see the photos, on television and in the newspaper, of the flooded areas, to worry about the people who have been displaced, to look in disbelief at the devastation, and to realize it is all happening just thirty blocks from our neighbourhood.

Strange Weather, as Tom Waitts would say.
