I keep this radar page up all the time and check it frequently. I can usually extrapolate what is going to hit and when by running an hour sequence.

Definitely some interesting noises coming from the wind in the west end. I've never heard what a tornado sounds like but the winds sound "swirly" if you know what I mean.

Haven't seen a drop of rain. The wind blew for like 10 minutes earlier and that was it.

Here in Sherwood Park we got a lot of rain and hail. At one point it looked like it had snowed in my backyard.

My dad lives about 5 minutes outside of Lamont and they got hit pretty hard with hail. He's got some trees down too.

Same here, hail really came down hard in Clarkdale. Thought for sure a window was going to be taken out at one point.

According to those who have been "unfortunate" enough to be right near the path of a tornado, they nearly all say it sounds like a train coming at you.

That's unfortunate I thought they've done a good job at missing the hail storms as of late. Not good news for the farmers out there.

It doesn't seem to suffer from large flooding under overpasses though.

It does suffer from 10 miles of bumper to bumper traffic though.

Take a run at the flooded areas and hope to make it over.

With that being said, I don't think weathermen tell us about this anyways. Just random people phoning in to the local radio shows.

Eh, I did avoid the flooding under 111 Ave overpass one day because I knew it was going to based on the rain.

I rarely have issues with the Henday except now that they are doing construction. /shrug

That's pretty much been all summer and won't be done until end of Sept. Yes I know the sign says Sept. 15, but good luck finishing on time.

I only take the Henday from Rabbit Hill road to Gateway, which today was unobstructed by construction.

Where's the Sept 15th sign? Cameron Heights?

I know they closed up construction over the Winter and the Henday is amaaaaazing for me to visit friends on the northside.

It's for Lessard to Calling wood. Pretty much doing what they've been doing on the rest of the Henday.

Weather isn't helping

Yeah they are doing a lot of construction on Rabbit Hill road (widening it) and you can tell it's going slow because there's huge pools of water in the excavations in the morning. I either sneak onto Terwillegar and take Whitemud or duck onto the Henday.

Fortunately my Henday construction is limited right now. If figured they'd be done the Callingwood to Lessard stuff already. I know Cameron Heights needed a lot of work still.

This is all repair work, unlike Cameron Heights who needs finishing touches. Worse idea ever to put concrete freeway in our climate.

LOL I didn't realize that....

Was this a part of the idea to put concrete with the grooves to "minimize ice damage and maintenance costs?" XD

Those grooves were the worst idea I've seen for a road.
