Rain, Snow, and a Place with Wilder Weather than Minnesota's

"July snow, torrential rains pound province"
Edmonton Journal (Edmonton, Alberta, I take it) (July 14, 2010)

"City bus trips prove to be more of a raft ride while chuckwagon races are cancelled in Calgary"

"Pounding rain on Tuesday washed away street performances at Churchill Square and made the commute feel more like a raft ride down the North Saskatchewan River.

"To the south, rain forced the cancellation of the grandstand show and chuckwagon races at the Calgary Stampede. To the west, heavy snow fell in Jasper National Park...."

I think I may have finally found a place that - occasionally - has wilder weather than Minnesota.

Happily, there don't seem to have been any serious injuries - although at least one roof collapsed. From the rain, oddly enough, not the snow. That must have been some rain.

It helps, reading the article, if you are familiar with the metric system. Measurements are in millimeters and centimeters.

One person, at least, knew what snow was for - and made a snowman.
