I talked to a lady by the name of Louise Artic the wife of the late Edward Artic who died on May 11 2010. She I believe was trying to sort out the mess created after the devastation including replacing her windows.

The Agrium mine near Saskatoon remained closed on Wednesday morning following the death of a worker there.
Edward Artic, a 59-year-old electrician, was killed at the Vanscoy mine at approximately 1 p.m. CST on Tuesday.
Officials say he had worked at the mine for 10 years.
The details of the accident have not been released, but United Steelworkers Union suggests Artic was killed above ground after being struck by a falling object.
Tom Diment, the vice-president of potash at Agrium, couldn’t say how long the plant would be closed for.
"At this time, we have no firm plans as to when we’ll start up. That really depends on the state of the employees, and how we’re doing on that front, as well as how the investigations are progressing."
Diment said the company’s focus is on its employees.
"We are spending most of the efforts [Wednesday] with grief counsellors, with our employees and obviously maintaining contact with the family and close friends of the deceased," he said.
The potash facility is located about seven kilometres west of Vanscoy, a community 25 kilometres southwest of Saskatoon.
