Only in Calgary!!!

This is what I woke up to this morning!!!
Just kidding, but it felt about this cold this morning! Where did summer go? It's hard to imagine that just Saturday the kids we're enjoying the water slide at the farm in the sun and now it's barely 15!
I'm taking comfort that the weather man says the warm weather will return next week.
we were out at the farm in Sundre over the long weekend, the kids had a blast, as always.

We were woken up by the storm early Monday morning, WOW what a light show and hail the size of golf balls. I always thought people were exaggerating when they said that, how could they ever get that big? but it's true! Here are some pictures we took Monday morning after the storm when we went out to see what damage had been done. My mother-in-law was lucky, she didn't have too much damage on the farm. a few tree's down including this one that fell on the power lines. Tracy was able to get it off, with out electrocuting himself!
This is the back deck with all the hail on it!
Count down to kids going back to school: 22 days ( not that I'm counting or anything!)
