Yeah, I looked up the weather over there and I'm so jealous.


Now don't kid yourself!

Nothing is worse than the awful Alberta Winters.

Nothing to be jealous about. This summer has been too wet, and my tomatoes are not liking it one bit. It's been really cool at night as well.

I hope this weather today keeps up for a while.

That 43 degree day with the humidex was a hundred times worse than -40, and we rarely get -40.

At least you can escape the cold. It's real fun to spend hundreds on air conditioners that can't do the job.

I went downstairs and turned a fan on and was fine. Pretty sure that's cheaper than any heating bill I've ever had.

I'll take 40+ degrees now thanks to the years of torture from living in this city from September to May.

That would be great. If everyone had a basement. It was over 35 in my apartment for quite a while.

Count me in on the -40 > +40. Even more so because heat is included in my rent, while electro is not.

2010 it was minus 62 C with the wind. It was so cold we had a snowy horned owl set up camp in our shop. The only place colder on the planet that night was Siberia

Got a big one in Lethbridge tonight. Torrential downpour, hail and winds of 140 km/h. Flash flooding, trees broken, RVs flipped, shopping carts thrown across parking lots, sheds getting demolished. It was really crazy, one of the bigger ones I've seen.

There were clouds swirling above my house at one point, but I don't know if it was a tornado. At one point it was shear grey, I couldn't even see to the end of my cauldisac.

Here's a really cool time lapse video

Well done video, that was super cool. Crazy weather. How long a period of time did that time lapse video encompass?

Its not my video, so I'm not entirely sure. But the storm itself lasted for probably around half an hour. So I would guess that the video takes place over 2-3 hours maybe.

I will always take super cold over super hot.

But I will take mediocre hot over mediocre cold.

Another crazy video of the storm that went through Lethbridge yesterday (Warning for language there is swearing).



Looks almost like a mix between a hurricane and a white-out blizzard.

I didn't see the storm, but when I went to the bank, I saw all the hail on the ground.

Was heading downtown to Taste of Edmonton and got caught in it while still in traffic. The roads were almost instantly flooded and the hail was rapid like machine gun fire. Didnt last long but while it came down it was intense.

Yikes, I'm at my brothers acreage north and east of rocky mountain house, one hell of thunder and lightning storm going on here. Any remaing sky has been blotted out by black as black clouds.
