Lots of damage in and around Calgary.

@Kimmio Laughterlove it is very powerful and incredible (and scary too) and worth seeing
We don't get them here (or it's really rare). Sometimes, we get water spouts in the ocean. Little wind whipped water funnels. I haven't heard of them damaging anything.

I have relatives in Alberta. Tornadoes just havent happened while I've been there. I have seen crazy lightening in Calgary. One summer I lived pretty near to the power lines for about a month - it was freaky. And golf ball sized hail. I've seen that a few times.

Honestly, you don't want to be around for a tornado! Sounds like you've experienced some pretty good AB storms

Did okay last night here, other parts of Calgary were hit with hail, we just had heavy rain.
The Albertan on my writing board said he just got rain, too.

Ontario is looking at a week of sun, but it's getting hot going into next weekend so perhaps some humidity storms will show in the forecast later.

very overcast this morning - nice as it's cooler but looks like it could rain any moment

Got in a nice hour bike ride this afternoon with Mrs. M for company. Weather is perfect, neither too hot nor too cold. Headed over to Stoney Creek where there's decent paved trails along the creek and through the parks and neighbourhoods that surround it.

We're pretty lazy here today. We sat outside and chatted with a neighbour for a bit. Hubby is draining tanks and puttering. I've been working on a baby blanket. I got my camera and phone talking to each other on the new network. I was able to download my photos from a walk nearby on Friday. This is Spider Lake, near Qualicum, BC.

We went out to Bowser for supper with friends on Friday night. This magnificent Dogwood was there.
