For anyone who's complaining about their weather conditions... http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/newfoundland-labrador/story/2013/05/20/nl-...
Poor Todd! Hope that missed him.

When my friend called me she mentioned about the weather in Newfoundland. Immediately I was thinking about Todd.
one of the sunniest cities in Canada.
Temperature range +30C to -38C.
average annual precipitation 347.2mm.
Certainly everyone I've spoken to here wants to send their support and hopes through to the people of Moore and Oklahoma City.
The news is very sad.

Last night for hours I was watching TV coverage of the horrific mega-tornado in Moore, Oklahoma; the scope of destruction is beyond belief, with a tornado a mile wide and winds in excess of 200 mph (320 kph). My heart goes out to the people of Moore that have lost loved ones, homes, livelihoods, and all their earthly belongings.A short photo gallery showing the damage:http://online.wsj.com/article/SB1000142412788732410260457849695145090291...

All our paltry little concerns and complaints are put into perspective... how awful. My sympathies go out to all who are affected by this tragedy.
I am very sorry to hear about the disaster in Oklahoma. It is difficult to envision such a big wind.
We have our problems here to but no casualities only damaged roads, railways and houses. It is the largest flooding for several years. A lot of rain combined with warm weather and snowmelt. It is in the area where we have our cabin and we are fortunately safe home.
Rogaland, Norway - with cool, often rainy summers (29C max) and mild, often rainy winters (180 cm/year)!
We had an early start to the hail season on May 29th... sheesh! (Apologies for the bad photos through the back door.)
Oh my, the extremes of weather, so crazy. Lori, you're getting last spring hail, and we're in our fourth day above 90 F (33 :-[C), early for this kind of heat. Trond, the flooding you show looks bad too, lots of damage.
Too much excitement in the weather department- flooding in northern Alberta, funnel clouds and hail in central Alberta today- luckily we got nothing, I was able to get another 4.5 hours of digging in!
