This is Gross

We were recently hit with quite the storm, completely out of nowhere on a beautiful hot day.

The storm blew in faster than I could shut the windows. The fierce wind picked up much dirt and covered everything in the house. Gross.

Most of my tall aspen trees couldn’t fight against the wind and uprooted. Ugh.

Then. The hail started.

We didn’t get it as bad as some, causing damage to cars and siding, yet all my flowers are ruined.

Then, as fast as the storm came, the sun was again strong and bright. Of course since it was a beautiful day up until, the girls were in suimsuits and thought it was surreal to play in the ‘snow’ after some melted and the temps were back up.

I just love the look on Katie’s face – complete disgust behind a fake smile. Yep, I’ll have this same look permanently on my face, when winter hits in a couple months. 

Ok, that’s enough of that. Brrr. Here’s something better to look at from a couple days ago.

Crazy Alberta weather.

      There was an article about it yesterday in the Huffington Post – calling the hail storms in AB a ‘huge catastrophe’! So much damage, yet I consider ourselves lucky it wasn’t worse.

    Yikes! I do miss some of the awesome storms Alberta can bring but not that, not the destructive hail (it damaged my car so bad one day when a tornado touched down in Stony Plain back when I lived up there).
