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.

Unreal.

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.

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, 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.

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. :)
