We were under severe storm watches and warnings for most of today including possible tornadoes, damaging winds, large hail, and torrential downpours.
I headed out to a couple of appointments this afternoon just as a thunderstorm was brewing. By the time I got to the chiropractor's office, it was hitting full tilt - thunder, lightning, and monsoon-style rain that kept up for more than an hour. Power was out and some businesses closed because apparently life as we know it cannot happen without electricity to run the cash registers.
By the time I got to appointment number 2, the parking lot (this same one, from a post from last year) couldn't drain the water fast enough to keep up.
Unfortunately I didn't have the forethought to wear hip waders so I got wet feet.
We had another storm with heavy rain after supper. Parts of my back yard are flooded but I'm sure it will soak in by tomorrow as long as the rain is finished.
This has been a very strange spring, weather-wise, for the prairie provinces. We in Regina have been relatively fortunate. Other places are in far worse shape.
