Thank you Clone, that is valuable info. I dunno what in the world is going on up their. I had seen something about a very strong La Nina coming into play but I strongly doubt that is the cause of that crazy weather.
Since I got nothing to do over the weekends anymore I will try and study Canadian weather maps from Jan - July. If I come up with a theory I will post it to you. Doubt I will find anything though

I don't know about number and intensity of storms. The foothills are always prone to that action.

Its just dismal and wet. Not enough heat to get the real nasty stuff going around here.

Not sure how farming makes for available moisture? Speaking of farming I'm pretty well out, still interested but don't have enough land anymore to be personally concerned. One still doesn't like to see the struggles going on but that's the way that business works.

Calgary's population has increased 6 fold in my lifetime, as has the accompanying materialism. Its in the hail belt so not surprising when a hail event happens it gets more expensive every-time. At least to my simplistic eye.

Its lush and green and no smoke so there is always an upside.
