I LOVE Edmonton's weather in the summer... long, hot days often followed by thunderstorms in the evening. We're having a fantastic storm right now; while I was sitting out on the deck enjoying it, one giant thunderclap set off the alarms on at least two cars in hearing distance. Here's a pic of the view from the balcony... you can't really tell from the photo, but the sky is a very eerie shade of green/grey:
I did get reminded today to get out there and enjoy it while I can... I saw this billboard while driving around today. Y'know, they're probably right.
