I live in southern Alberta. The city I live in is one of the driest and windiest places in Canada (all the Chinook winds coming down from the Rockies). You can have all four seasons in one day here. In the winter we can get as cold as -50C (-58 fahrenheit) with wind chill. What we don't get is that much rain. This year, since about May, we've had weekly thunder and hail storms and flash floods. Calgary was half underwater. It's been kinda surreal.

Here is a picture of southern Alberta.

We had some nasty heat waves earlier in the summer but the past few weeks have been really nice.

August 16 and the forecasted high is only 68 which would be a record low for a high temperature!

The Day After Tomorrow is coming true.

Maybe I should pack up for Mexico.

I would love to see some snow this year as well, but yeah I'm gonna head south of the border 2 more times this year 8)

Been working all week finding the best price to bring down this badly leaning 80+ year old Red Oak tree in my back yard before if falls onto the neighbor's yard.. The urgency is because of this giant 2-3 inch wide split that has developed in it..



And with all this rain, it won't take much more for gravity to just pull it down :o
Looks like $1000 is the best price I can find and should be brought down as early as tomorrow

You might be able to sell it to someone who can make boards out of it and get some of that back?
I put the word out but so far no takers.. I will probably just have them cut it up into firewood size sections but I won't split it.. Probably my best bet is to just advertise Free Firewood cause I can't move all of it from the lot behind me to my yard (6 foot fence blocks that from happening)  :-\

Taking down trees isn't cheap.  I had a bunch taken down a few years ago & it was a couple grand.

It's down! It was deemed too dangerous to climb and it brushed the house behind me :o
May have to deal with the landlord for the light damage done to the house
Fast forward to 5:30 & 12:50 for the falls
