We had one hell of a storm last Sunday, here are some pictures, the white stuff is hail...
Where was this? I hear Edmonton had a crazy storm recently
Yep, this was the one in Edmonton
Thats nuts. I was in my living room downtown in a highrise apartment when the hail hit. And I mean did it hit hard. But after an hour or so it ended. I knew it was a dandy storm but didn't really think too much of it. Since the ground is so saturated from all the rain in the last week I guess it just made it that much worse.
The next day I picked up the newspaper and until then I never realized how bad it was in certain parts of the city. My mom called me last night and she lives off 149 street just 1/2 block north of Whitemud (I guess this is one of the hardest hit areas and judging by your pics Dean that looks like that area). The house has flooded something bad.
Holy handgrenade, ice floes down Edmonton. How's that huge mall?
Somebody tell Ron P, the beer is cold!
Over here on the east coast USA, we just had a dumping of rain and t-storms on Monday. Lots of localized flooding but no hail that I know of.
Based on the news reports, the mall had to evacualted when water was coming in from the roof, from broken pipes and from the drainage grates.
How long did this storm last?
Holy Sheet! That's incredible.
Stevan, the storm was short lived, about an hour or so. I read that some parts of the city recieved 150 mm (6 inches) of rain. Thats about normal for the month, let alone an hour.
Dude, and I thought Michigan was cold Holy &#*@!!
WOW That sucks!
I guess we get every other natural diaster in California...
But at least we are not cold!
Dude, that ain't snow, its hail. I'm sure the guys in Edmonton can say for sure, but I'll bet it was warm outside when that happened. We've had hail storms here in NC that covered the ground and streets with maybe an inch or so while it was still 80 degrees outside, but nothing like that.
Every time I've been to SF this southern boy has frozen his ass off.
I guessed Edmonton too...it sure looked like it, even with all the ice.
We had a couple of hail storms in Calgary too (300 km south of Edmonton). Not nearly as bad! In my area of Calgary (southwest) we got skittle-sized hail. The trees were shredded - bits and pieces of leaves everywhere!
I like Neil's pic.
pff. i've seen hotter storms at the mall of america.
Ahh, I guess the boys at the HAARP project are testing their equipment this month.
