Columbia Ridge News

Holy cow! A serious storm is ripping down the valley right now. Black skies, thunder, lightning and rain like I have never seen it rain here. Flash flood rain.

This pic was taken from the viewpoint above the neighbourhood minutes before the front hit.


This shot is pulling into the driveway. The sprint from the truck to the door left me soaked. I actually love this kind of weather.


The storm has since passed but we were at a neighbour's and there was water in the basement. It had filled a window well and then came through the window.

So if you have window wells, it might be best to get whomever looks after your place while you are away to just give it a good check over to ensure that you don't have water in your basement.
