Strange Weather

This is a little departure from my usual post, but yesterday, we had a typhoon, and I experienced one of the strangest weather events in my life.  Watch this video, where I explain what happened.

Okay, finished?  That was some strange rain in the morning.

I remember another time I experienced a strange storm.  It was several years ago back in Canada.  We experienced the storm of the century, except that it happened twice in one month.

I was on my way home from work on the bus, and a sudden storm hit, dumping rain so heavy that the driver couldn’t see out the windshield.  It was like a waterfall.  The wipers didn’t help at all.  Very slowly, he drove.  We finally got to my bus stop, and once I got out, I ran as fast as I could to my apartment, which was only about a 15 second run away.  It was raining so hard that my clothes were soaked all the way through.  I later found out that in some places, it had rained 160 mm in one hour.  The freeway flooded in places, West Edmonton Mall had a big leak, flooding part of the mall, and plenty of other flooding.  I’ll never forget that storm.

What’s the strangest weather you’ve ever experienced?
