Yorkton Flood

Being from Saskatchewan canada flooding isn't exactly a huge risk. But on July 1 Yorkton, Sask recieved 125mm (5 inches) of rain in a matter of half an hour and winds so strong they blew roofs off of businesses. I know of one apartment whos basement filled with water to within 3 inches of the ceiling. I got a few pictures to share with everyone here. I also have a link to the newspaper with additional pictures if anyone is interested.

Everyday as a child i used to pray to God to give me a jeep. After a couple of years i realized that God did not work that way. So i stole a jeep and asked for HIS forgiveness

I've been there a number of times. Tough to image them getting that much rain. 5 inches of mosquitos is different. ha ha but rain. They had very little snow last year.

The weather definitely is getting crazy, but man that's a lot of water, and talk about such a mess to have to clean up, too.

No, the gophers learned how to build a boat and came back when the water receded.

I did not find a picture of the boat but I did find that the displaced gophers may have developed a little attitude problem.
