Edmonton's storm

Well, my DH got stuck in the storm last night. Was heading to gymnastics at Capital City Gymnastics but due to the knee deep water everywhere on that end of the city they simply picked up my sister who was off work early since they evacuated WEM, she works at Galaxyland and it took them a good 2 1/2 hours just to get home, normally a 15 min drive. DH was soaked up to his thighs from wading through the water. Hail plugged the drains and flooded everything. Anyone else out in our lovely july weather?

I had to drive out to Fox Creek and back...last night. I was leaving just as the worst of it was coming into town. I didn't get any of the hail so lucky me.

There were stretches both ways when the rain was too much for the wipers and my vehicle was pretty much hydroplaning down the highway.

I can't believe how much rain we've had in July so far. Probably more rain than we have had in the last 5 or 6 years combined.
If there is anything the nonconformist hates worse than a conformist, it's another nonconformist who doesn't conform to the prevailing standard of nonconformity.

My dads truck and car were outside, but they were spared due to some large trees protecting them a little. Leaves and branches on alot of our trees were decimated. I have a picture of myself holding some larger than golfball sized hail in my hands, it was brutal. My friends(Reptile Aaron) basement flooded with 10 inches of water. I got nailed in the head by a chunk about marble sized, and a bunch of others on my hands, It stung pretty good. We went to Swiss Chalet for supper, and the roof was bowed, and there was water dripping from one spot! My dad(being an engineer) was very concerned after I alerted him of this, he told someone that worked there and they say "O yah! Its dripping thats why the bucket is there!", well duh! Thats brutal what happened at the mall too. And that tornado that touched down northeast of Edmonton, crazy. One of the worst July storms I've ever seen!
